Here are our tips for recording a Talking Head video:
- Start with a smile and pay attention: your audience should feel that you are with them and there for them.
- Look into the camera. Forget the technology and try to imagine that a living person is behind the camera lens. Eye contact will keep your audience engaged.
- Be natural.
- Ensure good recording conditions: quality light, a non-distracting background, a calm environment. Also, your audience should hear you clearly, be sure to have a good microphone and test it before you start.
Think of some talking head video you particularly appreciate. Why do your remember it?
