I'm regularly asked to present short pieces on film about new innovations, product introductions and other such stuff.
The scenario is generally the same; I have a vague idea beforehand of what the subject matter is, but it's only when you are on the spot and talking to the person responsible for the idea/product that you get a true picture of what it's all about. I then have to - in a matter of minutes - come up with a story, briefly rehearse and then present it to the camera before moving on to the next one.
