Free tools: Skype, iMovie, Windows Movie Maker and Dropbox.
Paid recording tools: Skype Call Recorder (Mac - $29.95), Pamela for Skype (PC - $25)
Test the audio: plug your mic or headset in
Test video: face into the light to minimise shadows and avoid fluoro lights (or else everything flickers)
Test that your call recorder is working properly
Visuals: avoid wearing stripes (you’ll go blurry)
Place your laptop or webcam at head-level (you want to avoid looking down into the camera)
Turn off your phone and let people know not to disturb you
Prepare your questions and get any props like a book ready
Check the guest is comfortable and answer any final questions before you start recording.
Introduce your guest, and away you go!
Reminder: Don't make noises (like u-huh, yeah) while the other person is talking. Use silent gestures like nodding.
Thank them for being involved
Save a copy to Dropbox and you can start editing in Screenflow, iMovie or Window Movie Maker.
