About This Class

In this introductory class, you'll learn to improve your video presence, even when you are camera shy.  You'll learn tricks to work with fear and nervousness, and your inner critic will be surprised by your approach. 

This is not a technical class, but more of an exciting journey through your mind and body.

After doing this class and after practicing, you should be able to show up in front of a video camera and make an authentic talking head video.

Flawless? I hope not! Let's keep making mistakes.

Please join me in the class project and I'm happy to give to feedback and advice.

But first: join the class and enjoy the ride.

Yours is a very important topic, delivered with such genuine care and professionalism. Thank you for your insight and guidance.
Love the simple, easy to implement tips of this class. It will help me lose the rise in temperature I feel whenever I am in front of a camera.

This is an awesome class—highly recommended. I'm pretty sure Lucy could convince me to do anything with her calm and easy presentation. Can't wait to take her other classes.
