Being the artsy fartsy type I’m friends with a couple of actors, now they’ve spent years refining their craft, having acting lessons and acting coaches. So I asked them for some help with improving the delivery of my vlogs, so, I present to you some of the things that I use to help me be more confident on camera.
1. Vocal Warmups
Basically there are a number of vocal warmups you can do, from tongue twisters to doing that weird thing with your mouth that makes your lips flap fast, I call it pretending to be a motorbike but they had a proper name for it though.
2. Pre-plan it
When I first started and up till recently I always winged my vlogs but since pre-planning them slightly by thinking of bulletpoints beforehand it helps keep me on track, and if I’m ever rambling I just get straight to the next one.
Also as a side note, increase the amount of intonation in your voice and it makes you come across as genuine and honest.
This goes hand in hand with the intonation thing, people react better to people that use their hands to emphasize their words, don’t flap around like a nutter but use your hands, head, body to emphasize what you’re saying, this comes across as more passionate and reinforces the words that you’re saying as honest and genuine subconsciously to the viewer.
4. Tell Yourself
The easiest one you can do, tell yourself you’re going to be amazing, tell yourself that it’s going to be the best vlog you’re ever gonna do, this then gives you a confidence boost and helps you subconsciously.
It’s told to call centres all over the world, you can hear a smile, you really can. Not only does it lighten you the fuck up and not take it so seriously, your viewers will react better to your vlogs.
And those are 5 ways to improve your confidence and delivery of your vlogs, if you guys liked this then I’ll do some more in the future as this is just 5 of the main ones I use.
