I have posted that I tried out for a music video and call back will be Monday. I think I just might get it.

So does anyone have any tips on working on camera? I would love to hear them.

Thanks

Tip: Don't play for the camera, let the camera find you...

Tip: Don't worry about revealing the secret to the crew and those cast members you are working with...I say this as you will be doing the same effect, over, and over again until the director is happy with the overall scene and not just your effect on camera...You will also be shot doing the same scene from at least three different camera set-ups (normally).

Be carefull with i.t. and lights from above. Be sure to see the material before the edit goes to the cinema or tv station. Know what frame you are in. don't do coin tricks in a total shot(obvious)
