Project Description

Present Yourself Well on Video

82b1190d

If you are going to do something like anchor a news program or moderate a debate, you will want to improve your on camera skills. You will never improve unless you get out there and practice.

Making a video and sharing it with others is just part of the process. If you aren't willing to get up there and practice in front of, and for, your friends, then how do you think you will ever be able to get in front of anyone else? Get constructive criticism from those that are watching and yourself, and you will quickly rock your video presence!

When you have completed this course, you will be able to:

  • Appear confident and relaxed on camera
  • Look professional while interviewing guests on TV
  • Appear poised while anchoring a TV newscast
  • Rehearse effectively using video

For this project, students will need to record themselves speaking using a cellphone, camera, or webcam. Additionally, they will need to have access to a teleprompter. Alternatively, you could use large cards for reading your script off of, or use your smart device and find a teleprompter app. There IS an app for that.
