I sat down with Alex Kemp, Senior Manager at Santa Barbara-based QAD, and asked him about the experience of working with me on domestic and international locations. Total duration of the video is about a minute, so check it out. Also, kudos to QAD’s Director of Photography Jim Bob Barnett for the exceptional video and audio capture.

Consider Video When Planning Your Live Event

September 6, 2016

Just returned from the Bay Area where I captured a live “Town Hall” presentation by a client’s top management.

The meeting took place in a huge, concrete-floored building with a giant white screen at the front, and minimal artificial lighting – probably the worst conditions imaginable for videotaping speakers. Fortunately, the client had the foresight to request that I bring a battery of powerful lights with me, which helped enormously.

What should that mean to you?

If you have a live presentation coming up soon that includes videotaping the speakers (a great idea, as there may be many times the number of viewers who watch online than are present in person), plan for the lighting requirements of video. Regardless of the size or configuration of the room, you should have a couple of lamps, more or less balanced to the lighting already in the room (artificial or daylight), each placed at about a 45 degree angle to the speaker. At the very least, your speaker should be brighter than the background.

This is a promotional video my son, Andy, made for his Multimedia Club at the High School he attends. Great Job, Andy. What may not be obvious, is Andy played both of the main acting parts in this movie, as well as directing and editing it.
