In this article, I will tell you – how to do a monologue before facing a camera for an interview, audition, or video blog. If you need to shoot your video message, say something to the camera, then carefully choose a background that matches the image you intend to create.
The background should be, as they say, in the subject of your speech, as well as suitable in terms of light and the ability to record high-quality sound.
With this kind of shooting, you need to look into the camera – directly into the lens, not into the screen where you see yourself, not to walk with your eyes, but to fix your gaze. It is not such an easy task at the beginning.
Remember the task and the essential task of what you are shooting; fill yourself with the emotions you want to convey.
Take out the mirror and powder, powder your face because shiny skin is unpleasant to look at, significantly since the camera increases everything: shine, and weight, and age. To deprive that of this opportunity, at least concerning the shine on your face. By the way, on television, men are also required to be powdered before going on air.
And then you can shout to yourself: Action!!!
Although you are unlikely to succeed right away because your voice will get stuck somewhere, and your face will turn to stone. Therefore, before shooting, do an exercise to relax the muscles of the face and improve facial expressions.
