How to use your hands when speaking on camera

Funny how a little tube with glass can make us feel so....awkward.

What is it about a camera lens that manages to snatch our personality? When I first started on-camera speaking I wasn't sure what to do with my hands.

Over time I did get better, and I learned a few things as I practiced. If you've ever wondered what to do with your hands when speaking on camera, this little video will help.
