Present Yourself Well on Camera
Lesson Plan Published 1/27/15 Last updated on 5/16/18
As more and more interviews are completed remotely and one’s online presence forms the first impression, students need to understand how to present themselves appropriately on camera. This lesson is designed to allow them to become familiar with three basic framing and lighting options, understand the pros and cons of each, and practice applying those to a few choice situations. In teams of two, students will perform three tasks, matching each task to a particular shot type (close-up, medium, or full). Students will appear on camera and also work behind the camera to create brief artifacts demonstrating they can make the correct choices and present appropriately on camera.
