OVERVIEW

The saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” is more than just hearsay - it's tried and true. Here at AAP, we're taking it up a notch.  While only 20% of people will read the content on a website, about 80% of people will watch a one-minute video.

As one of our presenters, we want to ensure your research and expertise gets the attention it deserves. But we need your help! We’re requesting that each speaker (that includes you!) create a 60 second video previewing the content you'll share. The video can be done easily and quickly on your cell phone or computer.  

This is your opportunity to showcase your personality and presentation. We'll use this as a marketing tool to current and potential attendees of the conference.

Your 60 second video should include:

        -A very brief intro about your expertise and experience

        -A brief overview (feel free to include a teaser!) of your topic

        -One sentence on why you chose to present at Physiatry '18

TIPS FOR CREATING A VIDEO PREVIEW

Be aware of your surroundings: Make sure that you have an appropriate background.

Floating Head Syndrome: Beware of having the camera too close to you - it can cause your head to appear to be floating. Make sure that your shoulders and chest are also showing in your video.

Noise Control:  Speak as if you normally would (and make sure you're in a quiet place if filming on a cell phone!).

Tick Tick Click:  Try to find a quiet place where there are no constant clickings or tickings. You microphone will pick this up as well and be distracting to listeners.

Show your personality: Make your video message memorable by putting your own personal flare on what you say and how you say it.  That’s the beauty of creating a video message.

Prepare, Practice, and then Go Off Script:  This is your preview for your presentation.  Reading from a piece of paper will take aware from the perception of the great presenter that you are.  Prepare what you are going to say, practice it out-loud, and then speak excitedly, knowledgeably and confidently about your presentation without the script in your hand.
