Presenting Piece to Camera:

Today I had another session of inquiry. My teacher I was learning from this time was Mr G. We learnt the key things you need to do to present your piece to camera perfectly.Before you present to camera you need to consider the following: Plan and know your purpose of what you are going to say. Rehearsal and warm up plus know what you are going to say. You need to keep you eye line on the camera if not then it look like you are not planned and not ready, it also looks like you are lying. Plan and Know your purpose: Jot down notes of what you are going to do. Present your ideas using a storyboard to show you know what your doing. Write a script and plan what you are going to say. Explain why are you presenting? Who are you presenting to? Who is your audience? Rehearsal and Warm up: Be ready and not go cold. Do some breathing exercise if helps like voice and body warm ups. Know what you are going to say before filming. Eye line to camera When presenting, your eyes must line up to the camera.This helps you to connect to your audience. ( Let Us Entertain You)If you look away it may show:You are not prepared. You are lying. Limited connection to your audience.




Today I had Mr Henderson and we learnt about cam cording and some main things you need to know about cam cording. We learnt about the tripods and how the camera’s go on you need to undo the screw and then tighten up the camera.
