Always arrive prepared
Practice what you want to say beforehand so that you can deliver your script without having to look at your notes. Talking to camera can be tricky but you can always practice by having someone film you before the time so you can see where you can improve.
Interviews are generally easier as you will talking to interviewer who will prompt your answers with set questions.
Avoid wearing clothes that are too busy, stripes and checkered tops don’t work well on camera.
Think about where the shoot will take place and dress comfortably but still look smart. Suit jackets, golf shirts, blouses and smart shirts are perfect as it allows us to clip the lapel mic onto you.
Avoid areas which are too noisy. This will have a huge impact on the quality of sound in the final video and can also be very distracting for you or the person being interviewed.
Turn off any music and make your staff or colleagues aware of the shoot. Take note of any other noise such as road noise and aircon’s.
Please let the video team know if there is a specific or key message that you want to communicate. Alternatively, if there is something you feel that should be left out, let us know so that we can make a note to remove it from the final video.
