Hey, hello, howdy, how are you?
We are excited to work with you and your business, however, we understand how intimidating a camera can be. So here are a few tips and tricks to get you prepared for the day.
What to Expect
Having a camera pointed at you is awkward at the best of times! An interview with Ulleo is very relaxed and conversational. You are an expert in your field and we are curious to learn from your knowledge and experience.
You are allowed to make mistakes, and you have an open invitation to waffle! We can edit your answers as necessary so they are clear and concise. We’ll cut away to action shots and animated motion graphics that help visualise the concepts you are talking about.
We all know we want to look our best on camera so here are just a few tips to help you decide how to present yourself and your business on the day;
- Avoid linear stripes on your clothing!
- We all love a bit of moisturiser to make our skin feel lovely, however, having a shiny face isn’t a great look on camera.
- If you wear glasses consider wearing contact lenses on the day as glasses can reflect the light.
- Wear something you love and that reflects your personality!
- Collecting the best footage will show students how to design, therefore, your products, services, and interior spaces are important to keep well presented for the camera too.
Warming Up Exercises
If you are feeling anxious, deep breathing and meditation practices can help before the interview, we never want you to feel uncomfortable and our team is here to ensure we can help you through the entire process – a few nerves are to be expected!
And if you want to exercise that voice box here’s a few fun sayings to ‘warm up’, see how fast you can say them;
- Peter piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
- Unique New York
- She sells seashells by the seashore
- How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
- Betty Botter had some butter, “But,” she said, “this butter’s bitter. If I bake this bitter butter, it would make my batter bitter. But a bit of better butter – that would make my batter better.” So she bought a bit of butter, better than her bitter butter, and she baked it in her batter, and the batter was not bitter. So ’twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.
At the end of the day, our wonderful post-production team will chop, change and edit the best sound bites and footage to highlight the best of you and your business so we can create a strong cohesive educational experience.
