A talking head video features someone speaking directly in front of the camera.
It's a story telling technique that lets you speak directly to the viewer. This type of video is typically shot from the waist up primarily showing the speakers head and shoulders. This is why they are called Talking Head videos.
The subject in the video speaks while sitting or standing, talking to the camera lens directly or at an angle.
Talking Head Applications
Talking head videos have limitless applications. Subjects can be narrators, instructors, subject matter experts, and even customer testimonials. These types of videos provide a personal touch as the viewer has the ability to immediately connect with the speaker. This is what makes them more effective than just using voice over narration.
