There are a number of different ways to make a good speaker video and it has everything to do with the quality of the captured source material. We will discuss the best ways your video production process your should be steered based on the types of video capture methods.
In this case, you have the permission of the speaker to record audio and video of her or his speech. You will own or have full reign to move about at the speaking venue, and you will likely have the chance to set up cameras and audio recording devices before hand. In this instance, you should expect to gather high-quality audio, and medium to high-quality video. Your video should consist of a variety of long, medium close up shots that change only as the speaker changes from one mood, or topic to another- if at all. Wide shots of the venue and audience should be included at the beginning and end- and you should incorporate video of any audience members who ask questions or make comments.
In this scenario, the audio quality may suffer, and video may not be available. Videos like this are common on YouTube and similar sites. It is acceptable to use video layovers of a single pertinent image or a series of images. The audience of such videos usually listen to these productions while looking at separate visual media. If the audio quality suffers from connection problems, consider editing those portions out. If too much content will be lost, by editing out static and interruptions, you may need to leave them in. With audio content of this type, most audiences will understand that lapses in the audio quality may occur.
In this type of explicative video, the speaker will often times be the video maker himself, or an interviewee. This case is much like the first type of speaker video and should be captured with the highest possible video quality. Cuts and different camera angles should be consistent with changes in the conversation or speech.
Whatever, type of speaker video you make- the emphasis should always be on the content of the speech, and the speaker. Video effects should be minimal to nonexistent. Changes in camera angles should be minimal as well while using them only to the extent that the character of the speaker and the subject matter call for.
