As an On-Camera Performance Coach, Jaeny Baik can show you how. She shares her trade secrets after working as a CBC TV host and reporter for a decade.

At this powerful, interactive workshop you’ll discover:

  • Why clients often “freeze” on camera, and how to loosen them up
  • 3 keys to help your clients establish TRUST through their video performance
  • #1 secret to being fantastic on video

That’s Not All!

BCPVA monthly meetings are a forum for members and guests to learn, share, and network with video industry professionals. Typical meetings can include presentations by experts in technology, shooting, editing, storytelling & imagery, and business management. New Professional members often show examples of their video productions followed by Q&A and open topic discussions. Frequently our Vendor Members bring the latest technology like cameras, lights, and gear to our meetings so you can try them out.

The point of BCPVA meetings is to help our members be the best videographers they can be!
