This post looks a little old, but I thought I would give my opinion for what it’s worth as I’m a beginner also.
1. You could try to fit more of your body/torso into the shot…zoom out a bit.
2. You can stand with your hands in front of you; see the photo. If you watch the entertainment news anchors they will usually be standing with most of their body in the shot and with one leg in front of the other with their hands around their mid-section.
3.Also, don’t be afraid to be over dramatic with your facial expressions and tones, to you it might feel weird but it won’t come across that way to the viewers – watch the entertainment anchors and keep this in mind, you will begin to notice how dramatic they are.
4. I agree about the laughter and background set as mentioned by the others.
