I have to present my short film to my film study class today and I'm pretty nervous, any advice or thoughts?

It's only three minutes and I think it's pretty good but you never know how it will be compared to what everyone else makes, y'know?

EDIT: I showed it and it actually went down pretty well. Thanks for the help!

First off, have a film to present do not try to pass off impromptu shadow puppetry as your film. Secondly, at the really important or emotional points shout ,"Bingo! Now that's what I'm talking about!" This lets others know when the important parts are coming. Finally when the movie ends hand out hundred dollar bills and when placing then surreptitiously in their hands lean in and say "The boss thinks that this film should be the tops, Capeesh!"

Haha, this comment started out somewhat helpful.

If you have time, sit a teddy bear on a chair. That's your audience.

Practice talking to it. Explain what they're going to see, let them watch it, then go through again, explaining what they've just seen, and ask for questions/comments.

Good suggestion. I've already shown it to my sister and friend which helped a lot.

Dunno how helpful this is, but maybe make sure you're holding something like a pen when presenting it, just so that you have something to do absentmindedly with your hands.

Yeah that's a better idea than biting my nails which is what I usually do.

I have a problem with holding my breath so I try to remember to breathe as I'm going, otherwise I'm gasping like a fish by the end of a few sentences.

Someone once told me to speak so slowly when presenting that it sounds like you're being patronising. Because nervous people talk quickly it usually comes out somewhere near normal talking speed.

If that went well please show us as well. We are your family
