Any tips for when you can't memorize? What about speaking extemporaneously?

That's a whole other post.

OK, sure.

Why yes I am! Don't recall mentioning that, but either I did or you have POWERS BEYOND MORTAL MEN!

The only advice I have for speaking on camera is:

-Don't look right into the lens unless you are apologizing to your constituents for embezzling the treasury. Look at an imaginary person just below and to the side of the lens.

-Beware over or underblinking---the camera sees all.

-Don't fidget---it gets hugely magnified in a close-up. This applies to eye-fidgeting too---a lot of amateurs look all around the room while talking, which is fine in public speaking, but makes you look shifty on camera.

Great! I'm not completely making this stuff up!

You mentioned editing when I was blathering about importing into Pro Tools from Final Cut once.

Yeah---next time I'll finish reading the post before commenting. Then I can just say "What he said is true!" and save everyone time.
