Producing a video of a presentation?
« on: March 10, 2020, 06:39:26 pm »
mini ao's presentation in person has been cancelled due to covid-19, and now needs to produce a video of her actually doing a short presentation, then submit it.

Any tips or good resources to look at, for a decent/professional result.  Uni AV studio can be booked apparently.

Are they wanting a video camera view of her standing up and droning, or do they want a screen-capture video of her PPT with her voicing-over?

One requires a video camera, the other just some software.
I do lots of short video presentations of our software products, and have used SnagIt, which is paid-for.

But there will be free options, I'm sure.

I just did a quick google, and it appears that there may be a tool in Win10 which can do video capture. I've not read it properly...

Hmm,

Without experience, that's a bit tough.

I'd have looked at several cameras, and do a multi camera edit. It depends on what the presentation video is going to be judged mainly on, content or production?

Also mike her up with a radio mike as anything else will not have good sound... also I'd consider showing slides from the presentation (if there're any) in the video.

Recent versions of PowerPoint have this built in, you can also do a narrated screen capture video.
Skype will also capture your screen and voice.

Thanks all. Good info/questions. 

Apparently needs to film herself actually standing in front of camera doing the presentation (on screen in Adobe software).  lighting may be tricky.  Content is key, but I expect the production is important to impress, as may detract if below par.

... lighting may be tricky.

If you can have her stand in a naturally lit room, with the window 45-60 degrees to one side of the camera-presenter axis that should likely give enough light and shade for a straightforward presentation.

iPhone or galaxy with a little stand or tripod.  As said a little wired microphone would be ideal.  I use this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MPDYGBE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which is perfectly acceptable.

Music stands make a great lectern.  Put a mark on the wall behind the camera which she can look at so that she is not looking directly at the camera but at the lecture theatre if that is what she wants.  Otherwise these days tlooking at the camera is fine and comes across as more of an intimate vlog.

you can sit behind the phone and do some zooming in and out if you want but I would not bother.  Stay relatively wide so that she can move a bit naturally and go for it.
