Video Broadcasting Workshop


We conducted our first in a series Video Broadcasting Workshop last week.  The workshop was specifically designed to help medical professionals improve their on-camera presence.  While the SuperVisionMD system is simple to use and broadcasts can be very basic without lights and props, some situations require a more studio-grade feel.  Our workshop teaches people how to appear natural and at ease in front of the camera, and how to have good stage presence, and how not be afraid of the camera.  Also taught are tips on what to wear in front of the camera, what NOT to wear, as well as hair and make up for women.  The class is limited to 8-10 participants so each person gets lots of on-camera practice inflatable horse.

The class is co-taught by Caryn Richman and Richard Jones.  Caryn is a Los Angeles actress with over 30 years of experience in front of the camera as the star of her own TV shows, numerous soaps, guest appearances, hosting commercials and stage performances http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvZA7uo7DFQ.  Richard has an advanced MFA degree in theatre arts and has worked for over 30 years in various production capacities on shows such as Cheers and Frasier.  Caryn concentrates on how to be in front of the camera and Richard focuses on everything that has to be in place behind the cameras.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own medical devices so mock scenes with their equipment can be arranged and practiced.  Participants must come prepared knowing what they plan to communicate and a basic script or outline of their presentation.  From there, the class concentrates on perfecting their performance, keeping it tight and to the point, and helping the “performers” achieve a pleasing and natural delivery.  Mock sessions are recorded and played back for review during the class.  Scenes are run over and over to achieve the right outcome and participants are encouraged to become at-ease with the camera.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two medical device companies participated in our first workshop and focused on fine-tuning their presentations.  One company’s product is an in-office blood assay device and the other’s product is an esophageal manometry system, which must be demonstrated with a live patient.  In our workshop, our medical manikin was used in place of a live patient.  Scripts were reviewed, lights were set and cameras adjusted to make the best angles.  As you can see from the pictures, the practice sessions are very hands-on.  Participants quickly forgot there was a camera rolling and focused on fine-tuning their broadcast.

    Participating in these workshops, it was gratifying to see how the attendees matured into solid on-screen personalities in such a short time span.
