Training: working on camera

For many traditional facilitators, trainers and presenters, working on camera for a remote audience is a new and challenging experience.  Some take it in their stride and others find it incredibly uncomfortable; but most don’t realise what a significant improvement they can make with some simple training.  We cover some of the fundamentals below.

Familiarisation

We always start with giving our clients a walk through of the space the will be working in, or teaching them how to asses this themselves.  Among other things, this would always include a high level view of the technologies they’re using and how they interact with each other.

Materials

You will need to adapt your materials for broadcast, especially so if you screen is also being filmed.  We take you through how to prep your content to optimise the different technologies used in remote presentation.

Microphone

We take you thought the different types of microphones, how to use them including checking voice levels and feedback. We try and show you  how to best position the mic and troubleshoot any problems.

Personal Style

Presenting on camera effectively is very different from delivering to a room.  Along with considering what is in frame at any given time, you need to consider your gestures, voice and any delays in broadcast.

Audience

How will your audience interact with you?  There are as many options are there are technologies, so we’ll help you plan ahead to ensure you get real interaction, questions and feedback.

Working on camera will definitely feel different from looking out at a sea of faces, but can be just as effective and enjoyable when done right. To learn more get in touch at hello@leewayco.com.
