TV Presenter Career Guidance - The Art Of Effective Camera Communication Part 2
TV Presenting is all about making sure that your personality comes across in front of the camera, as you will be employed for who YOU are and you need to let whoever is watching see the REAL you!
BE YOURSELF - EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN!
Oscar Wilde once famously stated: "Be Yourself as everyone else is taken" is a perfect why in which to sum up how you should personally approach TV Presenting.
TV Stations, Producers, Channel Bosses and Agents all look for someone who can be real in front of the camera, who can let their personality shone through and present naturally to the camera.... and simply be themselves (with a few strings attached of course!)
Quite often in the early stages, this can be easily said than done!
HOW TO ENGAGE AND CONNECT WITH YOUR VIEWER
1 - TALK TO ONE PERSON - Imagine talking to One Person - this will allow your mind to feel more relaxed and your voice delivery become more conversational.
2 - LOOK AT THE LENS Keep your eyes on the lens of the camera - looking away with shifty eyes breaks that connection you have and also makes you look uneasy.
3 - ANCHOR YOURSELF - Sit or stand still - we call it "ANCHORING YOURSELF" this is will not only make your presentation feel easier and more professional it will make you look confident even if you are nervous.
4 - BREATHE - Take some deep breathes and slow your delivery down - this will help make your nerves work for you as opposed to agents you.
5 - SMILE - one of the most important rules of presenting, especially if your subject isn't a hard hitting news programme! Viewers connect with a smile, it shows that you are happy to be there and confident, it can also show empathy, reassurance and that you are pleasant to look at - they this next time you present - you will be amazed how different your presentation comes across and how you sound!
Session 3 will follow next week!
