Let me establish a foundation for my review, so you know where I'm coming from on the subject of presentation.
Some years ago, I wrote a course on how to give a winning presentation. It definitely fills a need. Too many people who give live presentations have this misguided notion that Death by Powerpoint is somehow beneficial, but it does in fact isolate the speaker instead of connect the speaker to the audience. Powerpoint is not the presentation; at best, it's an audio visual aid. And the way it's typically used makes it worse than no aid at all. Nobody connects with a disembodied voice in the dark. In fact, this is a standard element in horror movies. And it's horrible for presentations. What presenters need to do instead is present themselves their ideas.
The same concept, of presenting yourself and your ideas, carries over into video. The same rules apply, except with video there are some additional ones. Just as it's a FAIL to be a talking head numbly reading PowerPoint slides to a live audience, so it is a FAIL to be a talking head talking numbly in front of the camera. Ms. Zomorodi explains how to look and sound good in front of the camera, whether you are recording a video for later distribution or are responding to a reporter who approached you on the courthouse steps.Read more ›
Well, now I re-rated this book. Now I can see the videos, not through kindles (I have 2 different kindle fire and videos don't play in any one of them!) Also in the PC, they didn't run.
I wrote to the author and SHE ANSWERED QUICKLY AND HELPED ME WITH THE PROBLEM! Videos are played if you install the Kindle application in an iPad...
Congratulations to the author, really concerned with the customers...
I'm a student working on my master's degree in web design. When I graduate a year from now, I want to go into UX design. In the meantime, I have a lot of work to do to convince my future employers that I know what I'm doing and that they should hire me. I've been seriously considering adding video to my branding strategy for a little while now, but I've never really known how to go about it. Having read Camera Ready in one sitting tonight--Manoush is such an engaging author that I couldn't help myself--I now feel equipped to make my first video.
Camera Ready is chock full of practical, easily applied advice on such topics as what to wear in front of the camera, how to say what you need to say, and what should be behind you when you're being filmed. Each chapter is concise and relevant, and Manoush expands on many of the most salient points in short videos, which are, not surprisingly, worth watching. On video, Manoush is personable and credible, and the clips themselves are quick, helpful and easy to digest.
In short, Camera Ready is a quick, helpful read, definitely worth your time if you expect to find yourself in front of a camera anytime soon.
