As a video specialist, chances are, you get asked to do lots of unique video shoots by clients. From ads, short films, interviews, courses and even webinars, it’s a good idea to learn about how these different video shoots are done so you can expand your skills and find out which one you want to focus on.
For this post, we’ll be talking about webinars and how you can record and create one for your client.
What is a Webinar?
From the name alone, it’s basically a seminar but done online. This allows companies to get in touch with their audience or employees even if they are not in the same location. This also works for students, training coaches and more. Most webinars are done to inform and share knowledge.
How To Set It Up?
To record your webinars, all you need is a webcam, camera and a good microphone. Some people prefer to use a simple webcam even the built-in-camera from their laptop or computer. But for a professional result, it’s good to have a quality camera that can record or broadcast in HD video so your audience receives only the best from you. This would also be advantageous if you plan on recording your webinars so it can be shared or replayed later on.
Always plan out or try your webinar setup hours or days before you are scheduled to give it. This eliminates or at least minimizes the possible problems that could come up. Make sure to keep your camera at eye level so your audience can feel you are speaking with them. Like any good presentation, set expectations on how long it will last and what you will be discussing. It’s a good idea to have an interesting slide or a fun opening to help welcome your audience as they join.
For your video, always accompany it with quality audio. Make sure your microphone is turned on and captures your voice clearly. Double check with your audience to make sure everybody is hearing you loud and clear before proceeding.
Finally, make sure your content is delivered to your audience properly. The whole point of your webinar is to inform your audience, whether these are colleagues or students. You want them to walk away knowing they learned something or spent their money wisely if the webinar is paid
