Now it's not at all unusual when you're shooting panels or speakers that there might be a video component to the presentation. And if there's going to be a video component to the presentation, there's also going to be an audio component. So I want to make sure, if there's going to be any video played on the screen, that I'm ready to adjust my levels. And know more or less what level they're going to come into. So whenever possible, beforehand, I want to get that presenter to tell me all the videos they're going to play, and run through one or two of them to make sure my levels are set properly. So that's what I'm going to do now.
So Jonathan, can you go ahead and play that video that you planned on playing? >> It's happening all over the world. Every day people are harnessing the power of the sun and it's literally lighting up their lives. >> And all I'm looking to do right here is just make sure that my video's not blowing out and not going to be too soft. And you might notice that I also did a smooth pan over from Jonathan to the video. The reason I did that is because I always recommend that you try to shoot any event like this, as if it were going out live over the air. Just in case it doesn't end up getting edited, or just in case you need a quick turnaround.
To be clear, the ideal would always be to get your hands on the source video, and edit that directly into your piece, so you don't have any audio or video issues with it. But just in case, you want to make sure you cover both. So remember, any time you're shooting a presentation or a speaker, you want to be as familiar with the presentation and the room as possible so you don't get caught off guard.
