#Speak To Camera
Do you have knowledge or skills that can help people? Then you need to share your knowledge with them.
The BEST way to do this is by speaking to a video camera.
How would you like to be able to speak to a video camera and get your message out to the World?
Imagine you can now do that, what would that feel like to you?
Perhaps you are someone who finds speaking to a video camera MORE difficult than speaking on stage?
Hi, my name is John Keedwell. I have been working in film and TV for many years as documentary cameramen in over 68 countries. Working with so many people I noticed there were many people who became very apprehensive when they were in front of a video camera. They had a great message yet it really badly affected their message.
Famous People, I worked with some VERY famous people who could command a live stage audience of 17,000 people. This really mystified me. How can someone so confident on stage be so nervous on camera? I decided to find out.
I studied more and I found out why. I put my findings into practice, and suddenly I found many more people were actually taking the time to thank me for helping them feel at ease and relaxed. I helped many professional people to feel confident and get the message about what they wanted to say.
Entrepreneurs, Creators I was surrounded by entrepreneurs and business owners wanting to communicate using video. In fact, I was inundated. When I said I make videos I can predict their next words...."I don't like how I look or sound on video"; and: " I hate myself on video". I could have written their scripts!
Get Your Message Out I realised I could really help many people like you to overcome the fear, be confident and clear when making a video, and help many people communicate their ideas around the world. I systemised it all and created my online course. Then I developed these workshops for a more practical experience and individual coaching from me in person.
I will show you:
Why you look and sound differently on camera to all other times you see yourself.
WHY you don't like speaking to camera-Self perception

Class limits Due to the interaction and personal help in this course the size of this class is strictly limited
1/ Do I need to do any preparation to attend this course?
Good question. The course is designed to help anyone at any level. Ideally, you have an idea about what you want to talk about. It may be publicising an event, showing a technique, or perhaps introducing a website.
Ideally, you have some attempts at making videos, (no matter how bad) Normally these will be with your mobile phone, and we would love to see them before. We can show you a "before and after" video to see how much you will improve.
In addition, we will have some webinars before the event and also afterwards to help you get prepared.
Where is the course held?
We have several options at present and want to find the best location for you. The location will be confirmed shortly so you can plan your visit.
Is this a Television presenting course?
The skills you will learn are about talking to a single camera in a non-studio environment. Many of the skills for presenting to a camera for Television will mesh with these skills, yet multi-camera studio is a different course altogether.
We also run course for documentary, single camera and 2 camera interview techniques, so please get in touch.
Why should I choose this course over another?
There are a few other courses out there with a similar subject, yet many are based on theory alone, with no professional experience from the instructor. I have filmed for broadcast for over 30 years, and have personally filmed over 3,700 interviews, some with very nervous people ( including many nervous celebrities ) The system I have devised means you will be learning from a great wealth of practical knowledge and experience.
Why does it cost so much?
Compared to what? Other courses will not prepare you so well and have access to professional equipment, knowledge and expertise. This is a small group to give you the attention required.
The return on your investment will mean you can communicate to the World with your idea or business,
Are there special rates available?
There are some special rates available for certain groups of people.
Contact me for details, marking the email WORKSHOP SPECIAL at firstname.lastname@example.org
How much will I need to spend on camera equipment after the course completes?
Nothing! You may have a limited budget and I understand. There is no need to spend huge budgets on equipment. Professional gear can be expensive, yet it makes your video making a lot simpler in many ways.If you intend to do a lot of videos then there are many options to make life easier!
We show a variety of solutions such as making videos on a smart phone, and with only a few additional inexpensive items you can transform what you show your audience.
We have information we give on the course to cater for many different budgets, from £20 to a much higher level. Should you wish to invest in new equipment we have specialist dealers we have great relationships we recommend who will have special deals for you,
What can/can't I bring to the event?
It is highly recommended to bring a camera/smartphone on the course (if you have one ). This is so you can learn how your specific video camera works and then go away with that knowledge. The principles are the same for any equipment, but camera operations differ slightly.
If you don't have any video camera or Smartphone ( such as an iPhone or another Android smartphone such as a Samsung ) we have a setup where you can practice and make a video. The camera is not the important part, however, the skills learned are far deeper than a specific technology. It is about how to structure your script for you, and then be confident with any camera at all.
Will I be expected to talk to the camera?
The idea is all attendees will have many opportunities to practice with a camera and get more comfortable. There are demonstrations to help you understand various concepts. You will NOT be put on the spot to talk in front of everyone.
Is there support before or after the event?
Yes, There is a 6-month email support included for any questions you have after the event.
We also have a webinar series. As workshop attendees, you are automatically invited to attend free
