Recording Tips

Don’t hold your phone like a cell phone. Hold it in landscape mode, (horizontally, not vertically). Keep it steady by using both hands. Tuck in your elbows close to your body, and if panning, keep your feet firmly on the ground and move your body. Move the camera slowly. Get as close as possible to your subject to avoid shakiness. Also, be aware that there are apps on your phone which can be used for editing either on your phone itself, or it can be uploaded to a PC. Sometimes, smartphone audio can sound like you are in a wind tunnel. For better audio, use an external microphone.


By entering below, participants agree that all video is copyright free and suitable for use by Cape Colony Inn in any and all marketing efforts. Additionally, participants attest that all people featured in the video give full consent for its use.

I perform 8 shows a week, many of which include the biggest names of Broadway. Guest of my show have included Cheyenne Jackson, Rumer Willis and over 20 Tony Award winners. I stay busy!
