How to make your subject look and sound great
The backbone of all documentary, corporate video and news programmes and most web content is made up of people talking to camera.
If someone from your company appears on peoples' screens, make no mistake, they will be judged not just on what they say but on the overall look and feel and the piece. Not because the audience is mean, but because they are human. And because they've seen a lot of TV in which it has been done "right". We've all seen it done "wrong": weak and echo-ey sound, wobbly and grainy picture and totally inappropriate location. They didn't mean to make it look like that, they wanted to do it right but lacked the knowledge.
The good news is that you can learn a simple set of skills used by TV crews day-in, day-out that will make anyone look and sound great on camera and create a lasting postitive impression with your audience.
These are skills that - thanks to technological advances - you can bring in-house to not only make your content more authentic and timely, but also to save your company a fortune. Once you've mastered it, you'll be able to open up new and powerful ways of communicating with existing and potential clients.
