About This Class

Both if you are an online teacher or if you just what to share your passions through a video you'll get the best results ever by "SHOWING YOUR FACE".

I know, though, that the moment before you put yourself in front of a camera is always dreadful....will I be prepared enough? Will it take me forever to be happy about myself? Will I be effective? These are all the questions that go through your mind and believe me IT SHOWS.

I have more than 10 YEARS OF PROFESSIONAL HOSTING EXPERIENCE both for TV and the web and I thought myself a few lessons in order to get all those fears and doubts lost and just be able to be my relaxed and confident self in front of the camera.

In this class I will share with you my tricks on:

1) how to use simple and cheap tools to combine with your SMARTPHONE and make your shoot more professional;

2) how to use NATURAL LIGHT, how to prepare the LOCATION and how to POSITION yourself;

3) how to be NATURAL, CONFIDENT and at EASE in front of the camera.

Be ready to sparkle and to be able to MAKE THE MOST EFFECTIVE TALKING HEAD VIDEO!

Being Italian just like her, and trying right now to produce my own courses, just watching at her confidence and natural way of exposing her concepts makes myself more confident too. This short course is the perfect anti-panic treatment for anyone who wants to be a better "talking head" in the short run.
I gotta say, the outtakes at the end were my favorite part. I'm so glad I'm not the only person who has all these misspoken lines and awkward moments in front of the camera. Knowing that someone who has done this hundreds of times still goes through that really helps me out a lot. Thank you for the class!
This was exactly what I needed to make my next class better. Thank you!
