Feature Presentation

Coaching for Knockout Interviews with Danielle Benzon

Your clients may have the best intentions and they may have slaved over their direct address scripts for ages. But thinking you’re prepared and actually being prepared to deliver a confident performance in front of the camera are not always the same.

So how can you help them?

You’re already doing your best to be a friendly, un-intimidating influence, putting them at ease, encouraging them to speak from the heart, but that’s not always enough. And you have your own job to worry about.

Speaking and presence coach Danielle Benzon will share the tips she shares with her clients to get comfortable in front of the lens on the day, plus some rehearsal and preparation techniques you can recommend to make sure your clients are prepared for the shoot.

Associate Member Presentation

Everything You Better Know about Flying a Drone

With BCPV Member  Dave Steinebach

Drones have become an integral part of our society including extensive use in Film and Video. On June 1, 2019 Transport Canada made a huge leap in the right direction by introducing new rules and regulations that will ultimately enable pilots to do more with less roadblocks, yet at the same time ensuring the very high safety standards required to protect the public, other aircraft, and property. Whether it’s for recreation or for commercial use, almost everyone using a drone will fall under the new TC guidelines.

Meeting will end with a 15 minute open discussion.
