  • Testimonials video for your club
  • Promo video for your workshop, conference, or other event
  • “Best Of” video capturing outstanding moments from club or contest speeches
  • Using the video recording feature built into PowerPoint to create narrated presentations
  • Improving on reality: editing out mistakes and emphasizing the highlights

Workshop Leader:
David F. Carr, DTM
Introduces supporting roles. Leads the meeting.

Therese Quaranta, DTM
The Timer tracks the time for each portion of the meeting and signals the speakers and functionaries so they know when their time is up. For green/yellow/red visual cues, please use an object as big as your head or a similarly prominent webcam effect. For an audible cue, tapping a pencil or a knife against a glass produces a chime that is not too distracting.

Chat Monitor:
Angela Smucker
Assists the Toastmaster of the Day by monitoring the backchannel communications through the chat function of the online meetings platform

Part 1: Creating Video – recording quality video with a smartphone or other consumer tech; capturing video from online meetings and Facebook Live. Using the narrated video recorder in PowerPoint.

Part 2: How to trim a video, combine multiple clips, or extract a still image. Basic concepts: cutting and pasting frames of video on a “timeline.” Examples using free tools built into Windows 10 (Mac users can do the same with iMovie).

Using YouTube’s “unlisted” privacy setting to share video not approved for publication. Using the video editor built into YouTube. Changing the thumbnail image displayed on YouTube and Facebook. Facebook sharing on pages, in groups, and on your personal profile.
