Charlie Seymour Jr at jvAlert Live Philadelphia

By Charlie Seymour Jr

jvAlert Live Philadelphia: Ken McArthur brought his powerfully-engaging format of connecting creative entrepreneurs back to his home territory and offered some terrific speakers to the interested and attentive crowd. (This is a NEW Presentation, not the same one I presented at the overflow-crowd event at AWeber a few months earlier.)

Here is the entire presentation by Charlie Seymour Jr, captured on video (as I mention in this presentation, YOU should record yourself every time you speak somewhere, too). Included are 7 of my videos as examples of what I do).

I totally enjoyed watching your video and listening to your weekly lessons sent via email.

Why did people applaud at the beginning and at the end? They applauded because your presentation was very engaging, very clear, and as always you are very funny, actually you are hilarious!!! 🙂

You also made it very easy for anyone to understand why video is a ‘Must’ for every entrepreneur.

Lights, Cameras, Action!

Even if you don’t see what you think you want, click on one of these and then search further on Amazon, knowing that Charlie feels these are good products (and that there are, of course, others).

For live presentations and in-studio use, Charlie uses:

Canon Camcorders – make sure you get one with an external microphone input! Then be sure you have lots of storage cards. Sound is SO important to your recordings – I can’t emphasize that too much. Strange: people think your IMAGE is better when the SOUND is great.

Kodak Zi8 – these little work horses can load 12 hours of video on a 16 GB card at 720p. I used several of these while doing a documentary on a church reconstruction (when I had to leave the camera on all day to provide me material for some time-lapse video). They make no noise, stay cool, and unattended they have been totally reliable. AND… they’re really small – I even tape them to a wall, at times, and almost no one notices.

Storage Cards – you can NEVER have too much storage. I generally use 16GB cards (the same cards fit in the Canon and Zi8 cameras) but getting a few 32GB cards now that the prices have fallen will be helpful. I always have several spares, in case I record something but can’t get to downloading it right away. REPEAT: you can NEVER have too much storage. AND… load your cards to a laptop or other storage device before leaving your venue – lose your information ONE time and you’ll be SO glad you took this extra step!

Audio Technical Wired Mics – when recording at a short distance without much movement, I like these little wired mics. Easy to store and set up. Just check the button battery often since there’s no battery meter on it. I use these often when I have a two-person interview where the cameras stay in one location. By using a wired mic and not a wireless, there is no chance of interference and the sound stays cleaner.

Dual Wireless Mics – you can always use just one but I want to be sure I always have enough for two people, like when doing an interview. So spend a bit more and get a dual lapel wireless system. SOMETIMES there is interference or the signal drops. The set I use are not the high-end mics, but within a single room in a hotel or office, they work great. For THIS presentation, I used a pro-quality Sony Wireless system (which is too expensive for many people, that’s why I recommend other solutions as well).

Blue Microphone Snowball – when you see us in a webinar setting, you may have seen this attractive mic. It plugs into your USB port – you can record podcasts OR do a backup audio recording with it. Works well and is now recognized instantly by most computer operating systems.



The Magic Of VideoScribe

People ask us all the time: “Charlie: HOW did you create such great ‘scribed’ (or whiteboard) videos?” Here’s our secret: We Use VideoScribe!”

OK… to be fair, just because you have MS Word, doesn’t mean you’ll create the next Harry Potter book or Stephen King novel. The same is true about this software: it is GREAT, but there’s a learning curve if YOU want to be great. So, if you want to see how terrific VideoScribe can be, please click this graphic. We love the people behind VideoScribe and we use this a LOT! (And if you just want us to create some videos for you, connect with us right away.)
