How to Prepare for Speaking on Camera

how to prepare for speaking on camera

In this day and age of social media, viral videos, and Internet (or “inbound”) marketing, a great professional corporate video from Skillman Video Group is a great way to market your product or service, build brand awareness, and increase sales. 

Building Connections Through Video

Creating rapport with viewers who come to your site by adding the “human touch” through the use of the video medium can not only help you reconnect with former clients but also open the door for new clients to feel instantly connected to what you and your business stand for.

The Challenge of Being on Camera

As you can see on our portfolio page, many business leaders and employees have courageously stepped forward and placed themselves in front of the camera to speak about their company and the services they offer.

For some (and maybe for you), this is an entirely new experience, and as we have said before, it is not as easy as it looks!

Professional Support for Your Video Endeavors

The professionals at Skillman Video Group recognize this and are ready and willing to help! 

The whole experience of “lights, camera, action!” can be daunting (trust us when we say we’ve seen it before), but if the speaker is properly prepared for the shoot, it will go quickly and smoothly.

Preparing for Your Video Shoot

With this in mind, Christina Skillman, Sr. Producer and Principal at SVG, and the production professionals at Skillman Video Group willingly stepped out from behind the camera and created a short “How To” video to highlight some of the pre-production work and planning that goes into creating the ideal “Talking Head”/interview video.

The Interview Video Format

A marketing video can take many forms, but the simple interview or talking head format is one of the easiest and most cost-effective forms available.  From pre-production to post-production, they can be completed in just a matter of days!

Navigating Video Production Challenges

There are so many factors that need to be taken into consideration when making a professional corporate video—from the room selection, to the clothes, to the microphone & lighting, to the on-screen mannerisms—it can seem overwhelming to the novice.

Ensuring a Smooth Video Production Process

But with this kind of preparation, and with the skill and experience of the professionals at Skillman Video Group, it’ll be a breeze!
