What Can I Expect
Learn from media industry experts on these TV presenter courses! We are offering one day television presenting training workshops at various professional production studios around the UK. All of these TV academies offer the best media training for budding TV presenters on a day filled with lots of practical exercises and all the theory too.
Training to be a TV presenter is all about positive mental attitude. The coaches know only too well the importance of communication, explaining that the words themselves are just a small percentage of it, with your intonation, that’s to say the way you say the words, and then your body language whilst presenting being the most important.
That’s why on this TV presenter day you’ll be looking at everything from appearance and timing, to delivery and the art of what the trainers have coined 3D communication. It’s truly fascinating stuff and helps you understand what makes a presenter engaging and thoroughly watchable.
The proof of course, is in the pieces to camera. Participants will be encouraged to consider what sort of presenter they’d like to be on the telly, so the training exercises can be geared towards that. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of being a showbiz reporter on the red carpet? Perhaps your style is more daytime television, or is the fun of being an upbeat children’s presenter what really drew you into TV training?
As for techniques, there are some very useful practical skills that are covered by the TV training academy tutors. For example, you might practice presenting in front of a green screen. Technically known as chroma keying, this is where a presenter stands in front of a bright green backdrop, but for the viewers watching, they are standing in front of an image. It's most commonly used for weather presenters standing in front of cgi maps.
Then there’s working with autocue. An essential part of live and recorded as-live television presenting, the requirement to be able to read autocue without sounding or looking like you’re reading words off a screen (which is exactly what you are doing!) is also a tricky skill to master, but the TV industry experts hosting these training days will have some excellent tips for you.
Combine that with sessions on co-presenting, where you bounce off each other on screen to carry the programme between you and then discovering the ways to perfect your intros and outros when you’re both on camera. We think that by the end of these TV trainer courses you’ll be ready to stand in front of the camera and present yourself to the millions of tele viewers out there!
