Courses

Pursuing A career as A Television Presenter isn’t easy. Studio Talk understands that better than anybody else. However, with A global multi-media explosion of television and digital channels across the web, almost anyone and everyone with A camera on their phone can become A broadcaster– the opportunities are tremendous and only growing.
So, where do you start?

It is difficult to start out without experience on camera. But, how do you get experience unless someone gives you the opportunity. And how do you get the opportunity unless someone trains you on camera. This is where the Studio Talk TV Anchoring Course can help.

Hands-on experience, teleprompter training, studio simulated exercises, voice training along with interactive sessions with top industry experts will complete your training. At the end of the course you’ll walk away with a professional showreel and A certificate.

Besides helping you become an ace communicator and A confident public speaker, the training will arm you with valuable insights into the television industry.

Workshop Highlights

  • FACING THE CAMERAS
    FACING THE CAMERAS

    Our training teaches you the basic principles of TV Presentation applicable to every type and genre of presenting – news, business, sports and entertainment.

    The Program will include:

    • Getting rid of the ‘nerves’ instantly every time you face the camera
    • Converting your ‘off-camera’ confidence into ‘on-camera’ persona
    • Simple rules of hand and facial gestures – use them in moderation
    • The Right Voice modulation – why even trained actors and radio presenters find it hard to speak before the cameras
    • How to get rid of the ‘thought bubbles’ – mental distractions take away from your anchoring
    • How to come across as A “natural” on television
    • How to make it seem “effortless”
    • How to really “connect” with your audience down the camera lens

     

     

  • USING THE TELEPROMPTER

    Reading A Teleprompter effectively is not as easy as most think. Firstly, most people don’t read aloud as well as they think they do. Add to that, on A teleprompter the sentences are cut up to two or three words per line and the script moving at A distance while you have lights in your face. Not easy at all.

    Our training will include:

    • Reading with the right intonation – moving words tend to make people read faster
    • Be natural and simply talk – Viewer should not guess that you are ‘reading’ – for the viewer the anchor ‘talks’

     

  • LIVE TV REPORTING
    LIVE TV REPORTING

    Television Presentation is not just about being in the studio but also reporting from A live situation irrespective of the genre. Studio Talk’s TV Anchoring Programme will teach you how to present A “live” report in front of the camera.

    • You will be given different hypothetical situations and ask to present a ‘live’ report
    • Perfect practice for A wide variety of reporting situations
    • You will learn to present to A shoulder-held camera
    • Presenting to A moving camera – walking and talking

     

  • ART OF INTERVIEWING

    • Tricks to make your interviewee ‘reveal’ that extra bit

  • YOUR VERY OWN SHOWREEL

    In order to get you ready for A career before the cameras, it is important that you showcase the skill set you have learnt at Studio Talk. During the last session we record your showreel that serves as your video resume

    • Completely scripted – we will record you presenting all genres of TV Anchoring to make your showreel A true representation of all skills that you have acquired during the program
    • Script, though, is just A framework - therefore, if you wish, it’s A simple matter to slightly deviate from it, enabling you to stamp your own personality, uniqueness and style on the showreel
