Summary

This book is a concise guide written by two individuals who have been there under the lights and in front of the camera. Its no-nonsense approach offers readers practical advice about on-camera performance, including key aspects of voice, movement, communication and appearance. It gives them a foundation for working in the studio, in the field and in front of an audience; it is ideal for media performers of any type, including those who work as reporters, company spokespersons, or community advocates.

Recommendations include how to properly position oneself for a shot, how to improve articulation, how to deal with stress and how to best perform online. "Try-It-Out" exercises help readers put what they have learned into practice and prepare to be on camera. Key terms are bolded in the chapters and are collected in a book-end Glossary for easy reference.
