On July 9th, my book will be out! You can find it on Amazon and at your local Barnes & Noble location.
Television Veteran, Jacquie Jordan and On-Air Talent & Coach, Shannon O'Dowd (me), parlay their longtime media training careers into The Ultimate On-Camera Guidebook: Hosts*Experts*Influencers.
We are memorializing the A-Z of what it takes to be on camera in every position for successful appearances. With fun anecdotal stories, we break down the elements of on-camera performances including auditions, branding, content, direction, editorial, focus, glamour, headshots, hosting, influencers, jargon, kinetics, language, memorization, nuances, on-air, performance, questions, rehearsals, social media, talking points, under-performing, vernacular, w, x, y, and z!!!
This Guidebook takes the talent from pre-production and behind the scenes, to the business elements that create opportunity and success to the new frontier of the digital age, the Selfie and the story it tells the audience.
Video content is so prevalent these days, and my book has a ton of great tips and tricks on the topic. It was difficult for me to sit down and siphon through all the years of coaching people into content that is structured.
This book is really to help people perform video content when they are acting like themselves. Acting is a totally different thing, and there are plenty of acting books out there. So there wasn't a really great resource out there for hosts, experts, and influencers. I'm really excited to put this information out there.
