Basic GuidelinesSpeaking in front of the camera can be daunting, especially, if you want to communicate your thoughts and ideas with confidence, grace, and without stumbling on your words or losing your train of thought. Do not worry. These guidelines are created to help you be better prepared and performed well in front of camera.
PREPARE your message.Narrow down the content to no more than 3 points and be sure you know which is the most important. Imagine it as a newspaper headline – short, sweet and precisely to the point. And memorize these three points. Practice repeating them using some examples and supportive phrases. Soon you’ll find your script is pretty much written
FocusThe camera is your audience. If you are speaking to the audience, keep your eyes on the camera. Just like in an interview, always focus on the person interviewing you.
Relax and smile.
Body languageAvoid too much movement such as walking and swaying, but some hand movement is fine.
When sitting, lean just slightly forward, shoulders down and then sit as tall as you can but without stiffness.
