As a video production agency, we understand that being on camera can be daunting for some people. To help you feel more comfortable and confident, we’ve put together these 10 tips for being on camera.


Prepare beforehand

Preparation is key when it comes to being on camera. Know your material and practice your delivery. This will help you to feel more confident and reduce the chances of stumbling over your words.

Dress appropriately

Sometimes, tight patterns on shirts and ties, can cause distortion on camera and give off a ‘vibrating’ appearance on screen. Bright red and white block colours should also be avoided, but you can wear a white shirt underneath a blazer/jacket. Avoid wearing green clothing or accessories where possible when going in front of a green screen.

Expect to repeat lines

If we ask you to repeat lines over and over, it may be because we need to reset cameras, amend lighting or take different angles. Or even to producde capture a slightly different tone for editing purposes. We'll work with you to get the best possible performance and ensure that the final product looks and sounds great.

Be natural

Be yourself and let your personality shine through. Authenticity is key to creating a connection with your audience.

Have fun!

Enjoy the process of presenting on camera and let your enthusiasm show. This will help create a positive and engaging experience for your audience.

Warm up

It could be useful to warm up your voice before you start speaking on camera. This will help you to sound more confident and avoid any strain or fatigue in your voice. Some warm up exercises to consider are stretching your facial muscles, humming, practicing tongue twisters.

Focus on your message

When you're on camera, it's easy to get distracted by the environment or the camera itself. Focus on your message and the points you want to make, and don't let distractions take away from your delivery.

Practice your body language

Your body language can say a lot about you, so it's important to practice how you want to present yourself on camera. Sit or stand up straight, avoid fidgeting, and use appropriate hand gestures to emphasise your points.

Stay hydrated

Your voice is your most important tool when you're on camera, so it's essential to take care of it. One of the best things you can do is stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water before and during filming can help keep your voice clear and strong. In addition, this can help prevent sibilance, which is the hissing sound that can occur when you pronounce certain letters like T, S, and SH.
