These days, the digital world seems to revolve around video content. Students prefer to see a video lecture, rather than study from books. Online education has never been in greater demand an it is becoming mandatory for trainers to possess on-camera performance skills.
So, are you ready to step into this world and share your knowledge with your student-base? Well, this would mean recording video lectures. Are you comfortable doing so? Feel you don’t need any guidelines or tips to improve the quality of those videos?
If you do feel the need for some guidance, you have come to the right place. This 16-part course can be taken by adult complete beginners to advanced students.
This course covers performance techniques and the technical how-to's on creating video tutorials in general and specifically on producing professional talking head video lectures.
The following content is covered:
By the end of this course you will feel completely capable technically and confident in your ability to appear on camera.
What tools do you need to enroll in this course? All you need is your computer and a willingness to learn. You don’t need to buy a fancy camera or microphone. To be able to do the exercises, you may use the microphone on your mobile phone, or the one in your computer.
So if you are ready for the challenge and serious about becoming an on-camera performer/ lecturer or vlogger, please enroll. There are 16 lessons to complete. Hop to it. Give it a go!
I obtained my degree in Performing Arts at the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2000. I then promptly ran away to the UK, to further my training in Puppetry, physical theatre and performance in various genres.
I spent 8 years working as an actress, voice artist and puppeteer in the UK, gaining experience in acting for film and television, creating and performing a one-woman show, amongst other puppetry projects.
I have been in the voice over business for 16 years. I now work from my home recording studio, in South Africa, with numerous clients from across the world. I am also a Film lecturer in tertiary education, with 7 years teaching experience. I recently created a 3-year degree curriculum in Screen Acting, which was accredited by the South African Council of Higher Education.
I hope my combination of skills will serve you well.
