I am an Emmy-award winning television producer and an experienced journalism educator so I understand that a reporter’s credibility depends on solid on-camera performance skills.
This comprehensive 32-slide PowerPoint reveals step-by-step instructions and performance advice based on broadcast industry standards and it will teach student Anchors and Reporters how to project authority and communicate with clarity using appropriate body language and voice techniques.
This PPT provides detailed instructions for VISUAL, VOCAL and TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE SKILLS, including:
• Hair / Make-Up / Wardrobe requirements for males and females, with links to video demonstrations
• Appropriate body language while sitting at the news desk and standing to report in the field
• Voice instruction for proper breath support, enunciation, and script interpretation/inflection, with AUDIO FILE examples
• Instructions for reading from a teleprompter with a sample script and a link to a free online prompter
• Instruction for properly handling microphones, including both hand-held and lavalier mics
• Links to online resources designed especially for students
I personally do not believe there is any difference between a “scholastic” journalist and a “commercial” journalist. We’re all telling important stories to inform our communities and that makes us journalists – period!
Enhanced on-camera performance skills will ensure your budding journalists are polished and professional so they can convey high-value information with credibility and clarity.
