Are you a business professional who is serious about creating better video presentations?

1st impressions are crucial. Within a couple of seconds, your viewers have judged your income, level of education, and even your level of success.

Within 30 seconds (assuming you are interesting enough for them to be still watching) they’ve also judged your level of intelligence, honesty, competence, friendliness, and confidence. Once they have formed this 1st impression, you are stuck with it.

It is an inescapable fact.  “How” you deliver your message can be more important than the message itself. Many people undermine all their hard work because they don’t know the secrets of how to give a successful video performance.

Confidence in Front of the Video Camera

Presenting to a camera requires a completely different skill-set from public speaking; a fact few people are aware of. Being able to speak to a live audience does not necessarily mean you will come across well on camera. Even confident people can “blow it” when the record button is pushed. The sad thing is, many of them don’t even know they are delivering a poor performance!

The camera has no human qualities.  It doesn’t blink, smile, or give you encouraging feedback like a real person does; it’s just a machine observing you with an intense robotic stare. This can take some time getting used to.

Actors and TV presenters are trained to deal with this. Unfortunately, most people who are new to video presenting come across very differently on camera than they do in the flesh, and it can seriously detract from your message.

Bud the CEO.

Bud is the CEO of a software company. He is rightfully proud of the products and services his team provides and the enviable employee culture they have created. The marketing department is upgrading the company website, and agrees that it would be a good idea to film a two minute video for the website home page of Bud communicating his passion for excellence to potential future customers. Everyone agrees, “This video will show our customers how authentic we are, and will be great for the brand.”

Bud is a naturally good speaker. He often stands up and gives talks in front of groups, and likes to be in the limelight. They hire some video equipment, get a professional camera operator in, and set Bud up in the company foyer with the company logo in the background and start recording.

Unfortunately, after dozens of takes, they sit down to review the playback on a big screen and come to the conclusion that whilst Bud does a good job of presenting on stage, he just does not come across well on video. His eyes are glazed over like a deer in the headlights, and he seems ill at ease. He trips over his words, and his delivery is unconvincing. It’s hard to watch. Even Bud is cringing.

What’s more, Bud starts feeling self-conscious the more he studies himself on the screen. “Is that what I really look like to others?” Bud wonders. He doesn’t like the way his hair looks, and he is embarrassed about his bodyweight. Not only that, the body movements and expansive hand gestures he uses on stage when speaking to groups do not translate well on camera. He realizes that he doesn’t even know what to with his hands either.

Confidence shaken, Bud realizes that there is more to presenting on video camera than meets the eye, and he knows he can do much better..

Bebe the Author.

Bebe has just published her second book. She is an established thought leader in her field, and wants to leverage her expertise to promote a series of resource materials she has developed to build her consulting practice. She started following a group of so-called “online marketing experts” who convinced her that “Video marketing is the future. All you have to do is be yourself”. They make it sound so simple in their “10 steps to video marketing success” online course she just purchased and downloaded.

Bebe tries her best to follow their recommendations using her home video setup, but quickly realizes that while the information is probably well-intentioned, it lacks real depth. She has many questions that remain unanswered. Her mind fills with doubts. “How much experience do these people really have in delivering video presentations themselves?” she wonders.

Looking at replays of the footage she recorded on her home video setup, Bebe certainly doesn’t like what she sees. Her hair is sticking up in strange places, and the makeup brand she normally uses just isn’t cutting it.

Not only that, Bebe has a prominent facial feature that she does not want to draw audience attention to, so she needs to figure out the best camera angles for her to be filmed on.

But it’s really her nervousness that is most concerning. Her mouth gets dry. Her voice quivers. She has difficulty swallowing. She blinks a lot. Bebe speaks so fast that it’s hard to tell where one point ends and the next point begins. It sounds like she is trying to deliver her whole message in one breath. Gasp!

“This is not right”, thinks Bebe. “It’s not about being myself, it’s about learning how to present my best self on video camera”.

Binx the Health and Fitness Guru.

Binx is a high profile fitness expert and sports model who has a huge social media following. She wants to start a web video series to promote and sell a fitness and weight loss program to her fan base. She certainly looks the part, and is a bundle of enthusiastic energy when you meet her in person.

Most people who are put in front of the video camera for the first time feel nervous and tend to become self-conscious and freeze up projecting very little social energy. Not Binx however! She has so much energy that she comes across on-screen like an over caffeinated bobblehead. She shouts at the camera and waves her arms about frantically like aerobics instructor. Often her body movements upstage her verbal delivery and her teachings seem to get lost in translation.

Her big facial expressions and body movements seem to work well at fitness expos when she is standing on a stage speaking to a live audience, but they seem artificial and overbearing on screen. Her video presentation delivery is so “in your face” that even her mom reaches for the mute button.

Binx wants to make the most of her natural charisma, and learn how project it in way that works well on camera.

 

Video Presentation Coaching with Bianca Te Rito

Bianca provides an exclusive, personalized virtual consulting service for business owners, start-up entrepreneurs, thought leaders, authors, public speakers and the occasional VIP to help them present themselves, their product, service or brand message to their target audience in the most effective way possible on video. Bianca works virtually with a variety of clients from all around the world, including professional service firms, established business executives, rising stars, VIPS to best-selling business authors – who want to deliver effective online video presentations; whether it is for sales presentations, product demonstrations, internal staff communications, video blogging, video interviews, video hangouts, webcasting, or sharing their thought leadership online with video.

What you won’t get:  is one of those ubiquitous, one size fits all, cookie cutter “video content marketing” packages that are promoted online.  They contain generic tips that are superficial at best, and don’t really help you to improve your video presentations.  It is highly unlikely that these providers have ever been paid to work in a professional capacity in front of the camera as an actor or presenter, or paid to work behind the camera in TV advertising and film production.

What you will get:  is an intimate, personalized coaching service from an expert who has spent more than 20 years working in front of the camera; performing lead roles in short films, TV soap operas, TV commercials, corporate videos, music videos, radio commercials, as well as featuring as a model in fitness, commercial and fashion campaigns. Bianca has also worked behind the camera (TV/film production) evaluating the on-screen performance of thousands of people as part of a casting agency.

Bianca will teach you how to present yourself on camera in the most effective way possible and help you avoid making the crucial (and all too common) mistakes that can undermine your success and detract from your personal brand.

“Bianca’s expert insights were invaluable to taking my video work to a completely new level”

I recently asked Bianca to help me improve the quality and professionalism of my video work. Although I’ve been a professional speaker/corporate educator for nearly 20 years, Bianca was able to give me advice, coaching and input that made a huge positive impact on how I produced my videos – including lighting, clothing, style, background, voice… Her expert insights were invaluable to taking my video work to a completely new level. In addition, she was a complete joy to work with – very personable, extremely focused and dedicated to my success. I am truly pleased to offer my very highest recommendation on behalf of Bianca – she is an amazing person and does an absolutely superior job.

“I cannot think of anyone who understands the differences better than Bianca Te Rito”

I have made over 2000 speeches and I think I’m pretty good at it. But I recently started a video blog, and wow is working in front of a camera different. Most speakers don’t know how to project toward that little glass lens. It’s very different from a live audience. I cannot think of anyone who understands the differences better than Bianca Te Rito. Her recommendations, after watching some of my videos, were totally new ideas to me, but old hat to onscreen experts like Bianca. Her work was quick, to the point, and incredibly helpful. And delivered in a very visual way (not just verbal recommendations) that made new ideas easy to understand and apply. She’s a delight to work with!
