Tips For Taking Part In Remote Interviews Over The Internet
Everyone involved in a recording would want to sound their very best.
By following these tips, interviews or discussions should go smoothly and all involved should sound clear. Recording are done over Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts at prearranged times.
2. If you are doing an interview that requires video, regardless of what video device you use to capture and transmit your video, try to position yourself in a location that is well lit. Avoid locations that have bright backlighting, reflections or glare coming from directly in front of the camera.
3. Try to record from locations with soft surfaces. Soft surfaces lower the amount of reflected noise. A location with a rug and hanging drapes will help lower the amount of unwanted reflected sounds. Reframe from tapping on surfaces that may produce unwanted noise. Also, reframe from swiveling in your chair as that may cause unwanted noise as well.
4. Special attention is needed if you have children, guests or pets at your recording location. Ask everyone at your recording location to remain quiet. In this situation, having a pet temporally relocated to another room or location is advisable.
