Cool Shots


BC video

Each summer, our creative clients at Ovation! Performing Arts Academy hold a week long class called Cool Shots - Video Boot Camp.

Over the first three days of the course, the kids plan & develop a musical theatre performance.  They learn the script and the songs and practice the choreography. 

GreenMan Video Productions shows up and records the performance over the last two days of the course.  Each student gets a DVD to show their family & friends.  The latest video is a mashup of contemporary songs & excerpts from the 60’s hit Bye, Bye Birdie.





Prologue to the Performing Arts

Prologue to the Performing Arts represents a large roster of theatre, dance, music, puppetry, storytelling and variety/comedy performers.  Since 2011, GreenMan Video Productions has produced a number of performance & promotion videos for Prologue. Some examples of the showcases are shown below

MOTUS O Dance Theatre

GreenMan Video Productions always enjoys working for MOTUS O Dance Theatre.  Sometimes we produce a complete video, sometimes we shoot a performance & provide the footage for the Motus O folks to edit.
Here’s an example of the latter.  We recorded their Perspectives performance and they created the following tremendous promotional video.



Chris McKhool & Sultans of StringYallaYalla 2


GreenMan Video Productions first met Chris McKhool at Ontario Contact in 2008.  Click here to read Chris’ first impressions.
Since then we have produced a number of fun video projects for Chris, some in his Fiddlefire persona (see below) and some with the
award winning Canadian string super group, Sultans of String.
We had the pleasure of recording the CD release concert for  the Sultans’ album, Yalla Yalla! The concert took place at Trinity St. Paul’s Centre, a beautiful, historic church in Toronto.  The Sultans posted our videos on their YouTube channel where they have accumulated more than 50,000 views at last count.

The Magic of Song Choral ConcertMetropolitan


A choral conductor from New Zealand, studying in Toronto, needed a video record of herself conducting the Toronto Children’s Chorus to complete a performance component of her grad program.  GreenMan Video Productions to the rescue !!  Now we have a satisfied customer in New Zealand.

While we were at it, we provided some performance footage to the Toronto Children’s Chorus and the Hamilton Children’s Choir who participated in the concert



Powerhouse Fellowship Soul Choir

GreenMan Video Productions had the pleasure of recording the Powerhouse Fellowship Soul Choir reunion concert.


Casablanca Orchestra Casablanca Orchestra

The good folks at Sheraton Cadwell Orchestras hired GreenMan Video Productions to record their Sunday Serenade performance at Mel Lastman Square in Toronto.  It was a great evening of Big Band swing, Jazz, Latin and Blues standards.  Unfortunately, the customer wanted to buy the unedited tapes so we don’t have any samples to show.  They were kind enough to give us a quotable quote which you can find on our Testimonials page.  



Midnight Sapphire

GreenMan Video Productions produced a very evocative black & white promotional DVD and web clip for Heathir Laurent, the belly dancer and creative force behind Midnight Sapphire Entertainment.  You’ll think you’ve been transported to the Casbah in the 30s.  Choose one of the links below to see Heathir’s full performance.

Ontario Contact

Ontario Contact is an annual event giving those working in the touring performing arts sector an opportunity to share information in a three-day conference featuring contemporary and classical music, dance, theatre, spoken word, and youth orientated programming.
GreennMan Video Productions began providing videography services to Ontario Contact in 2007. The communication director’s opinion of our work can be found here.
We recorded Michele Landsberg’s 2008 keynote speech and made it available to conference attendees on DVD.  Our contract prevents us from posting Michele’s speech here but you can watch the 2009 keynote speeches of Alan S. Brown and David S. Craig.  Both presentations were enlightening and entertaining. We produced DVDs of Alan Brown’s keynote speech on site.  They were available for sale later the same day.  You can also see excerpts from a few of the other showcases we’ve produced for Ontario Contact.

Fundraiser videos


We were please to be a sponsor of the 2010 edition of Ontario Contact which was held in Parry Sound.

Here’s an excerpt from one of the 2010 keynote speeches:
