Filming in a studio environment allows us to capture your lecture with a professional level of audio and video clarity.
However, there are also some unique challenges inherent in the experience. By knowing a bit about what to expect, you can be less focused on the video recording and more on the delivery of your lecture. Here a few things that may be helpful to consider – but don’t put too much thought, stress or worry into these.
Before You Arrive
- Bring water.
- Use 16×9 ratio PowerPoint slides (not 4×3). Slide templates can be found for internal teaching and external presentations.
- Use bold, readable fonts that contrast with the background. Keep ADA requirements in mind.
- Bring a copy of your PowerPoint presentation on a thumb drive.
- Practice your presentation out loud.
- Arrive about 5 minutes early for your appointment
There is no dress-code, but you should look your best and dress professionally.
Take a look at our studio style guide:
Bold colors, and pure whites and blacks
Tight patterns, stripes, and polka dots
Reflective clothing or jewelry
(This typically apples to green screen recordings only)
A solid color garment with a neutral or subtle hue (e.g. grey, navy, olive )
Clothing that has a place for the microphone to clip-on to (e.g. a collared shirt)
An extra layer. The studio can be cold but warms up quickly under our lights.
