Since the start of the pandemic, I’ve been involved in producing lots of live streamed events. These involve the guests joining a video call with me, I mix the video and audio, and broadcast it to a platform like Facebook Live.
Nowadays, people are mostly used to video calls, but there’s still some little things you can do to help you look your best. I’ve found that supplying some pointers can be a helpful reminder for people and prevent some types of issues arising.
Back when we first made the switch to online, I made a one-page PDF to help people perfect their setup before an event. The PDF wasn’t ideal though — more attachments to handle, harder to update, and so on.
Once it was obvious I’d be doing a lot of events, I created videocall.guide.
videocall.guide is a super simple, single-serving website intended to be an easy, accessible way for participants to improve their appearance on screen. There’s one page with 6 handy tips. Feel free to share it with your cast if you’re producing events at the moment, I hope it’s helpful.
