We offer a range of video shoot options in our Johannesburg-based studio or on location, depending on what you would like. In each case, you will be enchanted by the interactive magic that happens while we film you. Please visit my videos page for samples shot in different settings.

In the case of videos that feature you presenting your message, we suggest that you prepare scripts beforehand, so that we can focus on shooting during your session. Scripts are not essential but help to refine your message for maximum impact, whether or not you choose to use a teleprompter. This intro video offers one example of an in-studio shoot, and includes some slides, which are optional and can be tailored in various ways:

We discuss your requirements in advance to create the best setting and branding for you. You’re also welcome to bring along something personal to add character to your setup. In terms of outfits, it is preferable to avoid too many patterns and to wear well fitted clothing, which is more flattering on camera. Clear, bold or pastel colours that complement you work well, or neutrals – in each case considering your setting and/or backdrop.

Feeling unsure, nervous, excited?

That’s perfectly natural. Video shoots are collaborative, creative processes, which means venturing into the unknown. This can be scary and exhilarating at the same time. It can also swing open the door for a quantum leap into your genius zone – a place of pure joy, success and fulfilment. The best way to embrace the highest potential for your shoot is to have faith in the authenticity of your inner nudge and take action now.

We also offer professional make-up (price on request) which contributes to great results. It typically includes touch-ups and tweaking during your shoot, adding extra variety to your portfolio. For a sneak peek behind-the-scenes, here’s a pic of Juanita applying make-up in our studio.
