How's it going guys. Josh Kuss here with Pritt Entertainment Group. And we got another Lights. Camera. Answers. segment for you today.

The question we're answering is "How should I prepare if I'm going to be on camera?" So, first and most importantly, dress to impress. You're gonna want to wear the best clothes you have, so very similar to what I've done here, which is my big red comfy sweats and my spider-man t-shirt. Just kidding, don't do that. You should dress the best, and you should also make sure that you have your hair the way you like it and you brush your teeth that morning. It's not a Hollywood production, you're not actually going to show up and have a makeup artist or a hair artist on site. So, you're definitely gonna want to make sure you take care of that yourself. If there's anything you're super worried about, ask the guy behind the camera he can see it, because he knows what it looks like.

I'm sorry another important thing you should silence your cell phone and hand it off to someone you trust. You don't want something like that happening. It's embarrassing, it's sets the shoot behind and you'll have to do another take.

One more big thing you should definitely do before you're gonna be on camera is, if it's an interview or you have lines, make sure you look at those lines you know prior to the day that you need them have an idea of what you're going to say. Practice it a few times, you know, make it feel natural you don't want to feel so unnatural that the footage isn't even usable. So try and make it, you know, as real as it can be.

And that's all I got for you today. If you guys have any other questions, you're gonna want to check out a couple of our other segments. Check out our Facebook, our YouTube and our Instagram. We'll always have links up on there. Thanks very much and I'll see you guys next time.
