10 Quick Fixes to make Better Video

first_imgIf you would like to have your company featured in the Irish Tech News Business Showcase, get in contact with us at Simon@IrishTechNews.ie or on Twitter: @SimonCocking I’m so sick of seeing boring, badly-made videos, aren’t you? And not just on YouTube! We live in the age of fast consumption where video is everywhere from LinkedIn lives (yes they’re a thing now), to facebook cover videos. This should be great news for me because I love video! I love being engrossed in great stories and I love the way film and video gives me glimpse into how other people see the world. What I don’t love is watching a boring video in the hope that the point is coming.., soon.So here are my Top Ten Tips on how to make your video one that people will enjoy watching: 1. Don’t be a BORING Talking HeadPerhaps you want to tell the viewer about yourself or your product or service. Some people will simply turn to the camera and give a fully exhaustive description of their offering and their ‘Why’ (which often involves a long and detailed story). The resulting video shows a face talking at the viewer for many minutes – what we call a “talking head”. While the face might be beautiful, friendly or animated, nobody wants to stare at a face for that long – it’s BORING!!A2. This depends on my day I think. I understand no one wants a boring talking head for minutes & minutes #chatsnap pic.twitter.com/pO4yqiRvMd— ???? ?????? (@breepalm) June 8, 2016Obviously, being brief will help (see tip number ten) but another fix is to mix it up a little. Staring at someone’s face can be uncomfortably intense and humans are hard-wired to pay attention to anything that’s moving – a survival instinct we’ve retained from prehistoric times. To hold people’s attention you must show them something new every 15 seconds or so. That can be a cutaway shot, a change of angle, or simply pulling back from the camera to show it something other than your face (e.g., some props).For edited pieces, film some cutaway shots which can be inserted strategically (aka B-Roll). This may include footage that explains or illustrates a point, details from the room that you’re filming in (e.g., a close-up of that interesting painting behind the person speaking) or details of the speaker such as a close up of their ear as they brush a strand of hair behind it, their hands clasped on the table before them, crossed feet where maybe one foot is wagging or tapping, a wrist as someone adjusts their watch, etc. Think about how when you’re talking with someone, you’ll often look away from their face perhaps noticing their jewellery, or glancing out the window and try to replicate these momentary distractions in film. 2. Bin the Script and Get RealWhen doing a piece to camera, it’s great to have a plan and a good idea of what you’re going to talk about, with a quick route to the point you want to make. However, if you know the exact words you’re going to say, then you’ll just sound wooden and over-rehearsed. Most of us aren’t actors and we can’t read a script while still coming across as authentic and natural – that’s why Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are on the big money, their talent is rare.Another mistake is placing written notes nearby in case you “get stuck”. This is a bad idea because when you glance at your notes, that eye-movement is exaggerated by the camera and portrays you as being insincere. Conversely, if you did become stuck, then you’d actually come across as being more authentic in the viewers’ eyes for your stumble. Tripping up on camera is actually better than trying to be perfect.3. Check the BackgroundIn film-making we say mise-en-scène which literally means to set the stage. When you present a video to your audience, every little thing in your scene becomes a part of the message you’re conveying. So, imagine a video about healthy living where an empty pizza box is clearly visible behind the speaker – that would undermine their message and credibility. Or heaven forbid, a well-known TV show set in a fantasy medieval world might leave a disposable coffee cup in shot…-name?-Queen Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven King–When your coffee’s ready they’ll just call Queen pic.twitter.com/EdqjsK6R2L— I Am Devloper (@iamdevloper) May 10, 2019I’m often asked to film people in their office, thus portraying them as professional and businesslike – but 9 times out of 10 the office is cluttered with cardboard boxes, piles of files and other bits that look anything but professional. Always ensure your space is camera ready before filming. Perhaps leave some interesting items about if they’re appropriate to the subject of the video.Un-ironed backdrops are a new issue. While backdrops are a really good idea to hide poor backgrounds, they’re prone to creasing so fix this with ironing, steaming or tension frames to get a smooth background with no mess.4. Sounds Good?Speaking of ‘background’ let’s talk background noise. Whatever recording device you use, it will pick up the noises that your brain has tuned out, e.g., the hum of a refrigerator, a fan, air conditioning or traffic. And remember that your eye is far more forgiving than you ear – we’ll tolerate poor colour, framing or focus, but add some annoying background noise and viewers will switch off.Quick Audio Fixes:Find a quiet space and pay attention to mechanical hums and noises.Close windows and doors to block out external noise.If your recording space contains smooth surfaces that sound will bounce off (e.g. a bathroom) placing a towel under the recording device will help absorb some of that bounce.Consider using a second sound recording device as back-up (e.g. a phone or iPad or a decent recorder if you have one – I’ve been known to hide zoom recorders in flower arrangements at weddings, just in case).Finally, and this is the important one, you need a good signal:noise ratio (SNR). The signal is the sound that you are trying to record (e.g., your voice) and this must be significantly louder than any background noise. For better SNR, move the mic closer to the signal and away from the noise – so if recording a voice, the mic should be as close to the face as possible and then you can turn down your levels so only the voice is audible.5. Light it Up!Lighting is important, but doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Good lighting can be as simple as opening the curtains and facing the window. Let the light shine on the face being filmed from in front or slightly to one side. When the lighting is really good, you’ll get catchlights which are the little squares of white light that appear in people’s eyes and bring your video to life.If you’re using studio lights, don’t put them too close to your face or you’ll look washed out. Diffused lights give a softer and more flattering appearance, smoothing out your skin. Watch out for ring-lights however, as if they’re too close or directly in front, they’ll cast a very unnatural catchlight.”stare into my backdrop ring-light eyes” pic.twitter.com/0nFXYuJqtz— Daniel (@Daniel_T_1985) August 25, 20186. Get a nice angleHow often have you watched a video shot from below and realised that you’re basically looking up somebody’s nostril? Nobody wants to see up your nose. Try to move the camera up to at least eye-level (or higher if you’d like to hide a soft jawline).7. Avoid illegible graphicsIf you’re filming a screen capture with voiceover be aware of the size of the text on screen. If you’re using powerpoint slides, for instance, remember that powerpoint was designed to be projected onto a large wall, whereas your video audience are probably watching on a phone. So avoid cramped areas of heavy text, space out written words, use them sparingly and ensure all fonts are both clear and HUGE!When you’re trying to make out tiny blurry writing on a screen… pic.twitter.com/1sSi37fxfg— Barbara Franzoni (@BarbaraFranzon1) July 7, 20198. Invite people in with Establishing ShotsLet your audience know where you are by starting off with a shot of your surroundings, or the front door of the building you’re in. This helps your audience to feel like they’re joining you there.9. Welcome Everyone, don’t ExcludeI’m talking here about accessibility and being careful to include people with disabilities as valuable members of your audience and customer base.Used closed or open caption for people with hearing impairments (and also for those scrolling through video with sound switched off). Captions can either be typed into your editor manually, or you can try rev.com who offer a captioning service allowing you to download an SRT file that can be uploaded to your video in YouTube – do make sure you check the file for spelling errors or misheard words before uploading.Also be aware of your vision-impaired audience, who will not be able to read all your graphics so include voice-over. For artistic pieces, you might consider adding audio description which the viewer can turn on or off (similar to closed captions). 10. Be Creative (and if you can’t be creative be brief)The best video tool you have is your creativity. Be different, be original, and use that creativity – you don’t have to be the same as anyone else. Most of all, appreciate your viewers; they have given you their time and that’s amazing! Your viewers are important people whose time is valuable so please don’t waste it by making them sit though a boring video. Think up ways to delight them with your creativity. And if you can’t be creative then please, at the very least, be BRIEF!

Obama unveils highspeed Internet help for lowincome homes

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility DURANT, Okla. (AP) — Calling the Internet a 21st century necessity, President Barack Obama on Wednesday unveiled a program to bring faster Internet connections to more low-income households, particularly to help students living in public and assisted housing stay ahead in school.Under ConnectHome, the public, private and nonprofit sectors have pledged to work together to provide high-speed connections and digital devices to more families at lower cost. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Sponsored Stories Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy The difference between men and women when it comes to pain More than 90 percent of households headed by a college graduate have Internet access, Obama said. But fewer than half of low-income households have similar access.In this day and age, Obama said the “digital divide” puts these individuals at a disadvantage by limiting their educational and economic opportunities because the Internet is increasingly needed to find a job, finish homework or keep in touch with family and friends.“In this digital age, when you can apply for a job, take a course, pay your bills … with a tap of your phone, the Internet is not a luxury. It’s a necessity,” Obama said in Durant, Oklahoma, on the first day of a two-day visit to the state.“You cannot connect with today’s economy without having access to the Internet,” he said.ConnectHome is similar to ConnectEd, a federal program that Obama said is on track to wire 99 percent of K-12 classrooms and libraries with high-speed Internet by the end of 2017.ConnectHome will begin in 27 cities and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, which is headquartered in Durant. With about 200,000 members spread across much of southeastern Oklahoma, the Choctaw Nation is the nation’s third-largest Native American tribe.

Industry training is vital Hospitality College

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J William Blue College deputy head Stuart Wiggins said Australia needs to focus on providing people in the industry with proper training as well as bringing in the tourism.”The tourism and hospitality industry is suffering severe skills shortages, and many of the half million employees working in tourism are unqualified,” says Wiggins.”Hospitality and tourism are ‘emerging professions’ where historically, workers could pursue a career without the need for formal qualifications. “Experience and enthusiasm were qualification enough in the past.” Mr Wiggins said with the economic crisis becoming a thing of the past, people are turning back to travelling. The deputy head added tourism operators and hotel groups will need to hire well trained staff with appropriate qualifications to deliver “sophisticated experiences”.”The industry has a new wave of graduates ready to take entry level jobs and gain experience; however operators are still enduring skills shortages in more senior and specialised positions,” he said.”The growing need for qualifications extends to middle and senior managers of large multi-faceted businesses. “Those with years of experience in the industry are often required formalise their knowledge via management degrees and professional bodies to advance up the ladder.”last_img read more

right but in public policy engineering is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for the widespread adoption of any technology; it also has to be buttressed by design simplicity a scalable architecture an “open” platform satisfying multiple stakeholders privacy safeguards and trust India will soon cross 100 crore Aadhaar numbers and the current Aadhaar Bill in Parliament is important infrastructure to enable government to go paperless presence-less and cashless This will catapult India to the front of the league of nations whose governments use technology to create an effective efficient and modern welfare state that treats its people with dignity Every entrepreneur knows that if you wait for all lights to be green you will never leave home I took the Aadhaar job in 2009 with the understanding that a law would eventually be passed and that we had solid legal grounds to initiate the project Because of the decision to start and not wait today we have close to a billion numbers issued and visible evidence of its utility with Rs 10000 crore-plus savings in LPG subsidy in one year alone But Aadhaar now needs regulatory legitimacy to operate at its full potential The current bill is a balanced synthesis of various stakeholder perspectives and adequately addresses the concerns of the Supreme Court Let’s take a look at the bill and what kinds of revolutions it could enable The key features of the Aadhaar Bill are in the details Enrolment is voluntary It shall only be used as proof of identity and not as proof of citizenship It enables the government to prevent fraud corruption and waste by requiring the Aadhaar number for delivery of any benefit subsidy or service from the Consolidated Fund of India such as LPG subsidy MGNREGA wages various insurance schemes provident fund schemes government scholarships and much more It does not prohibit the usage of Aadhaar for any other purpose by any public or private entity It provides privacy protection at an unprecedented level for Indian law For example it has one “use limitation” — it can only be used for the purpose for which the user gives consent Two “collection limitation” — no information other than demographic (name address date of birth sex and optionally email id/ mobile number) and biometric (photo fingerprint and iris scan) will be collected No other personal information of an individual will be in the Aadhaar database Three “access and rectification” — the user can access his own information and has an obligation to rectify it if it needs updating Four no demographic information or identity information received from the Unique Identification Authority of India can be displayed publicly Five the only exception to certain confidentiality (but not security) obligations is national security provided an order to disclose information is issued either by a court or by a joint secretary or higher officer and vetted by a high-powered committee headed by the cabinet secretary Even then sharing of a particular piece of information will be permitted only for a limited time period Further that no core biometric information can be shared is a principle without exception — people saying that core biometric information will be shared are wrong because Clause 29(1) is not overridden by Clause 33(2) Finally the bill includes stringent penalties including imprisonment for breach of privacy and other violations Overall the law represents a useful synthesis of the learning feedback and advice that two governments have received and should take care of the Supreme Court’s concerns that Aadhaar was functioning in a legislative vacuum without accountability Moreover as the recent net neutrality debate shows there is a clear and present danger of “digital colonisation” An important aspect of that is who manages the online digital identity that people will use to access the internet We run the grave risk that all our online access will be in the hands of a few foreign internet “gatekeepers” that will track all our digital activities In that context the Aadhaar platform which gives an open secure and privacy-protected digital ID to a billion Indian residents to access the internet will be a critical bulwark to ensure our digital independence The massive savings from a limited deployment of Aadhaar show that it is a powerful instrument against retail corruption far better than creating another bureaucratic layer that only deepens the decision-making gridlock Once the bill is passed India could see a Cambrian explosion of innovation inside and outside government It would enable unprecedented financial inclusion It could eliminate more than 2000 crore pages of paper (a low guesstimate) It could enable more than 300 million daily seekers of government services to save at least two hours every day It could eliminate fraud in government subsidies of at least Rs 50000 crore every year It would enable linking individuals to an organisation that has a unique enterprise number and this would shift enforcement to big data rather than feet-on-street It could unclog our highways and eliminate waiting rooms in hospitals It could eliminate fraud in degrees and substantially improve labour market matching And much more In the wonderful book The Case for India written in 1930 by historian Will Durant he

the party’s sliding base and enthuse its cadres Party sources today said that such a meeting could be held in March to hammer out solutions for the party after Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi receives inputs from the states and districts by February end for which AICC general secretaries were given specific instructions on Wednesday The last AICC meeting was held on January 17 this year ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in which Gandhi had said that "though there is a tough battle ahead the Congress will go into battle as warrior with heads held high" Representational image AFP It was the same meeting during which Manishankar Aiyar had made controversial "tea-seller" remark against the then BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi The Lok Sabha polls saw the Congress tally plummeting from 206 in 2009 to a mere 44 Since then serious deliberations have started in Congress about its ideological pull connect with masses and form of organisation as the party entered into its 130th year on Sunday Top leadership of the party will be present in the AICC on December 28 when the party will observe its 130th Foundation Day The party Vice President who was Congress face for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls in which the party recorded its worst-ever performance has begun a post-mortem of the debacle and held a series of consultations with leaders from across the country in groups Many leaders in Congress believe that the challenge before the party this time is bigger as while on one hand it’s vote base in Hindi states has been taken by parties representing caste aspirations it faces a ‘Hindutva’ force at the national level amid an impression having been created that Congress appeases minority in the name of secularism In his Wednesday consultations with party general secretaries and frontal wing chiefs Gandhi asked them to reach out to workers at the grass-roots for feedback on how to take the party forward after successive poll debacles Reacting to questions on whether Rahul Gandhi asked them to seek the feedback of grassroot leaders on whether the party is perceived as "anti-Hindu" AICC general secretary Shakeel Ahmed said" Gandhi made no such remarks It is completely untrue" Maintaining that he was present in the meeting and had briefed the media about it Ahmed said"He asked us to get the feedback from party workers on carrying forward to states and districts the core ideology of Congress and about structured strengthening of the party He also wanted feedback on whether the process of appointment of office bearers should be through elections or nominations or it should be a combination of both and how to extend the expand the reach of party in all sections and that the focus should be on taking up state specific issues Ahmed said At the AICC briefing party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi dubbed the reports regarding Congress seeking feedback on its perceived "anti-Hindu" image as "highly speculative" "This is too general and a vague question I am not here to comment on speculative news reports We do not do that Yes a meeting did take place in which various issues were discussed "But that does not mean I will confirm whatever else is said in reports" Singhvi said when asked about a newspaper report Sources however maintained that though the issue was not discussed in the Wednesday meeting some leaders had voiced this concern to Gandhi in earlier deliberations that the Opposition was successful in creating an impression that Congress was resorting to minoritysm and there is a need to correct that impression The issue has earlier also been flagged in public domain by some senior leaders including party veteran AK Antony but later he as well as the party had described his remarks as concerned with only Kerala politics In the meeting Gandhi had asked the general secretaries to prepare a report within two months with feedback from block and district-level workers to reinvigorate the party and widen its mass-base The deadline for membership enrolment for the party for the next organisational election too comes to end in February The defeat trail of Congress has not stopped since the Lok Sabha polls which saw its

by Shubhangi Khapre | Mumbai | Published: January 24 2017 3:48 am Shiv Sena Party Chief Uddhav Thackrey Top News At each Shiv Sena shakha across Mumbai a small blackboard highlights development works such as the coastal road wharf ferry services and drinking water projects to name just a few as achievements under the leadership of party president Uddhav Thackeray Till recently the pink-and-blue chalk messages scribbled on these blackboards also served as a warning against migrants Since the party’s formation on June 19 1966 these little blackboards have survived serving as the party’s most effective method of communication even while going after migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh However today the scenario has changed Development has replaced the migrant plank for the Mumbai civic polls Watch What Else Is Making News: Even the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) which had upstaged the Sena in its anti-north Indian campaigns since its formation in 2006 is no longer making noises about ‘Marathi asmita’ At the MNS headquarters in Dadar development — and not migrants — is what is being discussed Now what are the factors that made the migrant plank redundant in Mumbai and in Maharashtra politics Have regional parties like the Shiv Sena and the MNS realised that divisive politics does not bring electoral dividends Or are they following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s campaign model based on the development plank Prof R B Bhagat at the Department of Migration and Urban Studies International Institute for Population Sciences says “Global studies have shown that anti-migrant politics survive only when there is a huge development deficit When those at the helm of administration or governance miserably fail it creates a vacuum fuelling public sentiments to become tools at the hands of parties playing divisive politics” For any politics to sustain he says it has to be based on the ground realities Explaining the migrant scenario in Mumbai Bhagat says “If we look at the census the total migrants in the city and its suburbs in the year 2017 should work out to 8 lakh The total population of Mumbai is 14 crore The entire Maharashtra population is 1125 crore A majority of the migrants are from the north Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar However migrant population which has shown a substantial increase in the extended suburbs eastern and western is not because of migrants from outside alone Almost 50 per cent of the migrants come to Mumbai from backward villages or towns across Maharashtra” The Sena’s studied silence on migrants appears to be part of a well-calculated strategy to consolidate its base beyond the 26 per cent Marathi votebank in Mumbai Thackeray has realised that to retain number one position in the BMC polls they have to make inroads among Gujarati (17 per cent) and north Indian voters (20 per cent) Over this another 37 per cent voters include south Indians Bengalis Rajasthanis and Punjabis According to a Sena poll manager the aggressive anti-migrant agenda in the last three BMC polls may have helped to keep the party’s Marathi votebank intact but the number of seats won showed a steady decline from 100 to 75 This shows the Sena vote share has shrunk The BJP tally was 31 seats MNS 28 Congress 52 NCP 13 and others 28 in 2012 The BJP with a pan-India image like the Congress has often steered away from an emotive anti-north Indian plank even when it was in alliance with the Sena in the last three elections Says BJP’s Shrikant Bharatiya “From a party with a difference we have graduated to power with a difference” MNS general secretary Shalini Thackeray agrees that the party is now focusing on development “Our commitment to sons of the soil remains But we are highlighting development to expose the failures of the Shiv Sena and the BJP in coalition in the BMC for the last 19 years Why couldn’t the Sena give even good roads to Mumbai” she says For all
