Even those at the top of their game – don’t know what they don’t know.
Anyone can put themselves on video. But not everyone is watchable.
Being able to present effectively on video, has become a vital skill for the business leaders of tomorrow.
“Just be yourself”, they say. Ah…Not quite!
Have you heard the tale, “The Emperor’s New Clothes”? A large portion of our client base is made up of CEOs and business leaders. Due to the nature of their position, many find themselves surrounded by “yes people” who tell them what they want to hear.
When the person paying you asks, “Was that OK?”, most employees (and third party filming contractors) will say something supportive, “Yes, it’s fine or you were great”. Most won’t say what they honestly think. And most won’t have the real-world expertise to know what to look for on-screen. Let alone articulate the issue, or troubleshoot the situation on the spot.
So the business leader blunders blindly through the video presentation as best they can – oblivious to their credibility gaffes. It’s here that the video camera (and your audience) can be less unforgiving.
No one dares to tell them…“I’m sorry boss, you’re naked!”
Many leaders often feel like the naked proverbial emperor. This is why they come to Bianca. They want specific direction, independent coaching, or practical solutions to help them present themselves masterfully on video. If you want great results you need to present your best “on-screen, camera-ready self” and Bianca will help you deliver exactly that!
It’s not about talent. It’s about skill. Its 80% learned skills and 20% talent
Professional TV/Film actors, spokespeople, and presenters are trained in skills that optimize the nuances of working in front of the camera lens. They’ve learned proven techniques to help them to “sell the shot” (product, service, message, idea, etc). And, they make it look effortless and are paid well for it.
To their target audience, they are perceived as believable, likable, and relatable. They have the ability to captivate the viewer, trigger their emotions, and shape the viewer’s attitudes towards the intended product or service.
Unbeknown to you (the viewer) they (the director, actor, production, etc) are using a ton of visual persuasion techniques like;
- Preprogrammed (unconscious) emotion-laden-triggering visual clues i.e. sex, beauty, nurturance, status-envy, high/low social status
- Status indicators, visual triggers that are anxiety-producing (commonly used in high-fashion advertising), brain trappers and metaphors
- Subtle sex-roles cues, stylistic principles, and clustering that accentuate feelings of inferiority or superiority
- Different types of class structure for beauty i.e girl next door, everyday-joe, exotic, classic beauty etc – designed to trigger viewer identification
- Engagement techniques that evoke trust, desire or curiosity to “sell the message” on-screen.
The upside to this is that you can hone these techniques too. You can adopt screen-craft and production techniques that are specifically tailored to you, your message and your brand to influence and shape the point of view for your intended audience.
Bianca is here to support and guide savvy business owners, thought-leaders, teachers, presenters, business professionals, speakers, entrepreneurs, authors and VIPs who want to do masterful video. She wants to help you empower yourself on-screen and contribute to the future growth of your business or personal brand.
“My role is the link between you and the camera lens. Like a musical instrument, you have a range of notes, melodies, emotions, expressions, colors, and tones that you can access. Your voice, face, body, expression, energy, and the content of your message are all part of this instrument. I’ll help you tune your instrument. So that you can identify and play your best notes. And bring the best version of YOU to the screen. If you’re the hero, I’m your Yoda teaching you how to master the force within.”
