Week 3 – Audio & Visual Tools & Techniques

Live podcast video

In today’s session I was the camera man recording the session live for Richards’s viewers as he gave a presentation.

The experience was phenomenal as this was one of my weaknesses and now I know how to do a live podcast video. Bodnar (2013) mentions it is natural for an individual to feeling excited along with many emotions such as nervous when they perform their very first live cast, either them presenting or capturing. We were given many devices to record sound and video from dictator to an iPad.

We were challenged to moving around and capturing to the best that we could.Barry (2007) implies that a great cameraman moves around to capturing to the very best of his ability, being a great cameraman requires standing still to focusing on the presenter. However, movement allows freelance moments being captured too.

As I was Richard’s camera man I too decided to take on this challenge, although as a camera man I was to have focused on Richard delivering his presentation I captured the audience too along with a few selfies here and there as credit needs to be given to the camera man too.

This is one of the videos that was recorded from today’s session
