How to make the
best talking head video?

First things first. A talking head video is one in which a person has filmed a closeup while talking about something. The formats can be quite different. From explanatory videos, documentaries, a podcast show, or even an interview.

1. Preparation

Before you are going to shoot a talking-head video you should probably do some preparation. Of course, it depends if you are doing an interview or going to record a professional scripted marketing video. Anyway, the lighting is very important especially the lighting of your face and shoulder area. A proper mic is also important to get a decent sound quality. These two parts are often underestimated. So make sure to prepare and test your setup before you start with the recordings. Watch if your camera is in focus and the room is well illuminated.

2. Recording

Thanks to Type Studio you can do the shooting or recording on once. Of course, this applies to interviews anyway. Make sure that your face is in the middle of the frame and your eyes are at 2/3 of the height. An often seen mistake is that your head is on one side of the frame. The point that you don't have to worry about a slip of the tongue is that Type Studio makes it as easy as possible to cut these parts out of your video. You don't have to try so many times until you find the right take. Produce it once and polish it afterward.

3. Editing

Once your shooting is done upload the video into our tool and do the post-production. Select parts in the transcript that should not be shown in the final result. No matter if you are doing a marketing video or a video for your YouTube channel consider adding subtitles, headlines, and put a logo in one of the corners of your video. The effort you put into this has a direct impact on how much engagement you get. On the other side, you should not over-engineer it, and talking head videos should appear authentic.
