Let’s face it, a lot of us are still working from home, and may be for a long time. This doesn’t mean we can’t be outputting engaging and interesting video content. However, filming in a home set up can be daunting, especially when you have little experience. This is where the Cloud9 Filming From Home guide is here to help.
Covering everything from how to light yourself, sound, and tips and tricks to look professional in front of the camera, this comprehensive guide should be all you need to start producing video content, and look great while you do it.
What Did You Have For Breakfast?
A light-hearted compilation of our favourite answers to the interview warmup question 'what did you have for breakfast?'.
Sector: Arts & Learning
Don’t be fooled – being interviewed is never easy.
So the key to getting someone comfortable in an interview is to not dive in with the hard-hitting questions. If your interviewee is nervous or not used to being in front of a camera, asking them basic questions and getting them chatting is the perfect way to warm them up. Our go-to?: what did you have for breakfast.
As it turns out, we’ve asked this a lot so we thought it would be a fitting tribute to a well-trod question to make a compilation of some of our favourite answers (with a few familiar Cloud9 faces!).
Driven by Purpose
A sense of purpose is fundamental to the staff of this unique logistics company.
Client: World Courier
Sector: Corporate Comms
As more organisations are realising these days, it’s not so much what we do as why we do it. This film looks at the sense of purpose that drives the staff of biopharma logistics company World Courier, every day.
Using a device called EyeDirect that allows interviewees to look directly at camera while seeing the reflection of the interviewer in the lens, we made sure everything was set to get the most heart-felt comments on what was clearly an important issue for all staff at this global company.
From Stats to Stories
An online lecture from Steve and ISNTD talking about the importance telling patient's stories, not just reading their statistics.
Sector: Global Health + Arts & Learning
Covid-19 might have hit us all pretty hard, but there are still many opportunities to keep growing and learning.
We love to share our expertise with other people, and Steve had the chance to do just that when he chatted with ISNTD during their online lecture series. Steve talks his journey as a storyteller, the importance of telling the stories of people affected by NTDs, and gives a roadmap of how the tell the most powerful story possible.
Connecting with people in on online forum is doubly important these days, as is the need for compassionate and respectful storytelling. For more details about the talks and lectures, check out the ISNTD Connect website.
