Chapter 11. Movies and Videotapes > Delivery Techniques

Delivery Techniques

  1. Lights are generally best at half-mast…dark enough for a good picture, light enough for you to watch audience reaction and for people to jot down notes.

  2. Before you use a film with a group, watch it at least three times so you know it inside and out.

  3. Here’s an idea to consider if the visual part works well, but the sound track isn’t right for the audience, purpose, or occasion. Develop your own narrative and turn the sound off. Practice your narrative over and over again until you’re comfortable with the content and your delivery is natural and conversational.

  4. If you hope to involve the audience in a discussion after the film or video, this will require some special planning. Film and video audiences tend to become very passive. Some open-ended questions like these may help to get them active again:

    • Is there anything in the film you’re unclear about?

    • Are there any points you’d like me to expand on?

    • Have any of you experienced a situation similar to the one in the video?

    • How does the problem posed in this videotape apply to the kind of work you’re doing?

    • Was there anything in the video you feel reluctant to accept?
