Video Tips & Vlogs Archive

On these pages you'll find our archived Vlogs, interviews, online video, virtual meeting, online video training presenting 'Top Tips' and links to clips we Tweet about @PressPlayPres and news updates on our Facebook Page and  YouTube Channel @ Lottie Hearn Video Coach - please do come and Play with us there!

Below, you find a combination of scripted to camera pieces, impromptu interviews and in-studio clips to come so you can see for yourself which you prefer and what will work for you. They are not all perfect in every way, as that's the nature of picking up your camera and grabbing an opportunity, and even I have habits I need to work on and remind myself after watching and listening back! But the more you practise the more confident you become and the better your clips will be.

To get a real feel for what I mean, grab your notepad, look and listen to these clips - decide how they can help you improve your web videos, web-cam or VC presenting by thinking for yourself:

  1. "What do I specifically like in a clip - visuals, vocals, verbals - what can I use for me?"
  2. "What do I find distracting - what can I do even better, what do I need coaching on?"
  3. "What do I like most of all - confidence, charisma, credibility - what do I need to work on myself?"

Then Follow us on Twitter @pressplaypres and Like our Facebook page at the bottom of the screen - then you'll always be up to date with our latest clips, tips, Vlogs and news to help you make your videos even better than they already are!
