I provide professional 4K Ultra HD and HD videography services for public speakers, lecturers, panel discussions, corporate seminars, and conferences.
Based on the customers' needs and budgets, I film events with a single camera or multiple cameras. When a speaker uses a PowerPoint presentation, and provides me with the PowerPoint file, I integrate the actual slides into the final product as part of the editing process.
I also offer post-production services that help you publish your event on YouTube, your website, social media, and other online platforms. In addition, I can create from your presentation DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs. Read more about the benefits of filming your presentation.
In most cases, I recommend using a minimum of two cameras for filming events with PowerPoint presentations. However, when cost is an issue and the event is not complex, I use a single camera to film both the speaker(s) and the projection screen. The following is a brief description of the various filming options that I offer and their advantages and disadvantages.
When cost is an issue and the event is not complex, I use a single camera to film both the speaker and the projection screen. This can be done with a single camera alternating between the speaker and the screen. Note that when using a single camera to film a speaker who uses a PowerPoint presentation, I can add the slides during the editing process if I get the file of the PowerPoint presentation. However, doing that will increase the cost of the project.
Typically, you want to use a minimum of two cameras for filming speakers with PowerPoint presentations. Filming with two cameras allows for more creativity during the editing process and delivers a more professional final product compared to filming with a single camera. One camera with an operator covers close-up shots of your speakers.
The second camera (static – no operator) is positioned at a wider angle to give an overview of what is happening on stage, such as showing the entire projection screen with the speakers in the background.
The simplest and best way to capture the multimedia presentation is to request the actual slides from the speakers and add them to the edited version. In this case, the second camera also provides an excellent timing reference to connect the speakers and the PowerPoint slides during the editing process.
In contrast to using a two-camera setup, adding a third camera boosts the production value of your video and gives it a professional edge.
It takes a significant amount of time and effort to prepare for your presentation. This is why it is a good practice to create a video recording of your event and increase its long-term value and usefulness. Here are the benefits of video recording your event:
