If you are setting up to work from home, here are some tips on how to optimise your online presence for Zoom/Skype/Facetime etc. Contact us for a free telephone consult on how to optimise your work online.
- Try where possible to have the camera on your computer at eye level (height) to you. This gives a sense of ‘being-on-the-level’ and can support trust. You may need to put your laptop onto a box or similar.
- Where possible use a microphone system so the sound going into the computer comes from a microphone positioned near the top button or the neck of your top, ie close to your mouth and the sound coming out of it. Its more restful for the listener if your sound is good.
- Have a neutral background behind you – not a window.
- Have light on your face that illuminates but not so bright it makes you scrunch up your eyes.
- Make sure you can do the call and not be disturbed by other family members.
- Establish you have a reliable online link by testing the speed with Ookla/Speedtest.

We have made a series of promotional/branding films for Investec Asset Management, a large asset manager in the City of London. Our credits are for the whole production process. The films have been used online as well as to introduce investor conferences worldwide.
We have also made several films for travel companies including the luxury cruise company, Cunard. Our involvement in these films was from the initial branding discussions through script, direction, shoot and post-production integrating many film sources. Other films for Cunard celebrated the inauguration of the Queen Elizabeth, their newest ship. The ‘Brand Movie’ (below) was described by Cunard’s head of marketing as ‘the most Cunard film we have ever had’.
We have been involved with many inspirational and educational conferences. These have ranged from recordings of workshops to large events with thousands of participants: Continuing professional development material for healers, psychotherapists, counsellors, those interested in Pregnancy and Birth. Our work has included creating live stream, onsite tangible recording for sale to participants to take away and carefully edited programmes. You can see many of these as products in the Whole Being Films catalogue. Our partners in these projects include: Khiron House, Psychotherapy Excellence, The Findhorn Foundation, Scotland and Breath of Life. Please call to see examples of our work in this field.
