EDINBURGH TV FESTIVAL NOMINATED

Big congrats to our client SALINA ZAHER who is nominated for the Future Presenter Award for the Edinburgh TV Festival brought to you by Screen Scotland. It's a great achievement in such a short amount of time. We are hugely passionate about new talent here at The Presenter Studio - TV thrives on new, but we do very little to develop new talent. There's a lot of support for new talent off screen but not enough industry support for on-screen.  

Salina came and trained with us and did the 2 day Fast Track Programme and then the 1 to 1 programme.  

We are super proud!

New Talent Found for Channel 4 Series

This is our latest TV project for Channel 4 with BBC Studios - #greathometransformation where I worked as a Talent Executive and cast the two fabulous on-screen experts who are the faces of the show alongside the fabulous Emma Willis and Nick Grimshaw.  

Alexandria Dauley is the interior designer - a fabulous Welsh talent and Tim Hitchens is the carpenter.   I found both, pitched them to Channel 4, and they are now fronting their own new series.  

We are much more than a presenter agent here.  We are TV Producers who can put our names to new talent and get them on screen.  

Finding and developing new talent for TV is what I love to do. And I've got a great track record from casting the #strictlycomedancing judges to working with Rylan to finding new documentary voices for Channel4 - you name it I have done it!  

This series is out in the Spring and I can't wait to see how the team got on!

Chris Whitty's TV Commercial

Have you seen the call to action TV commercial the Government have put out to encourage the public to get a booster? What do you think of Chris Whitty's delivery? Does it feel impactful and a successful call to action?

 

We feel it lacks the impact it deserves. And won't therefore have the impact it desires so here's where we feel he went wrong, and here's some suggestions of how it could be more impactful.

 

1. Prof Chis Witty is clearly reading a script...if you are using autocue to deliver a message use it as a memory tool and not a reading device. You should try and learn your script as best you can. If you are reading you feel detached from what you are saying.

 

2. He feels very detached from his message. If you are not connected with what you are saying, your audience won't be either. See a script as something to bring to life, to play with, rather than something that restricts your delivery.

 

3. There's no emotional connection. Chris Witty's read is very dry. But when you are delivering information ask yourself 'what is the tone of my piece and how can I embrace it'? The tone here is a big call to action. A rallying cry to ask the public to take action.

 

4. He lacks energy. The camera always dilutes what you do. It doesn't add. So if you are ever speaking on camera, make sure your energy is up.

 

5. Visually it's very flat and lacks impact. Chris looks tired. Like he has lost the battle. But video is a visual medium, so visually you need to connect. So make sure your body is connected, speak from the heart not the head, and look to physically engage with your message.

 

Let us know what you think!

AMY DOWDEN WINS A BAFTA

Huge congrats to Amy who has won an BAFTA Cymru for her documentary Strictly Amy: Crohn's & Me, BBC ONE.  

Amy is one of the professional dancers on Strictly Come Dancing and did our 1 to 1 presenter coaching a while ago to ensure that when opportunities came along outside of the show she was ready!

SO MANY SUCCESS STORIES

2021 has been a HUGELY successful year four our clients.  Presenters have landed contracts with the BBC, Channel 4, ITV and have been signed up by top agents.  

We've also seen our clients land some incredible meetings with TV Channels as we help and advise them on who to contact - new clients are currently in discussions with commissioners about presenting their own shows from documentaries to factual formats.  

We've helped complete novices land contracts with all the major channels over the last few months, as our success continues and more and more people come and work with us. 

So a big shout out to clients we've got work for, who are in talks about exciting work, and also to those who are also brave enough to wait.  We are here for you.  We will support you.  And we are your family!  

Let's keep smashing 2021 together!

Media Training

Media Training:  

 

The media is an exciting place to be, and if thought about in the right way can really help to maximise the potential of your business. 

 

We want you to be excited about your media opportunity, and make sure that you get out of it what you want.  

 

Media training is often sterile, old-fashioned and out-of-date.  Viewers are now wise to people who are ‘media trained’ – instead they want authentic speakers who communicate with personality.

 

Our media training courses are personality based – we will help you find and develop your own style and voice.  

 

We also help with your messaging, and all the other tricks of the trade we have perfected over our 20 years experience in the media.  

 

So if you want media training that is dynamic, current and gets results get in touch.

 

Media training by TV Producers.

Our TV presenter training courses are now all up and running.  Your safety will always be our priority and we are now allowed to film, and are following the 2 metre ruling from the Government.  Our presenter courses are always small - we don't run big group TV presenter training courses where lots of people are in a small room.  Instead we have a maximum of 4 clients on our award-winning fast track TV presenter course, where you will work alongside a TV Producer and a cameraman.  For the 1 to 1 presenter coaching it is just yourself, a TV Producer and a cameraman. 

Our online presenter training courses will continue to run as we do our best to support you during these hard times, and it's work that we have also really enjoyed.  But we are truly excited to be back in the studio!  

All the dates for our presenter training courses can be found on the Book Now part of the website.  So do check them out as there is limited availability for June now.

See you soon!
