Prep different. Are you doing the prep with someone else while filming it? Practice with multiple different people? Good luck.

It happens with the best of us. Apart from the job and subject related prep, I think researching about your interviewers gives an edge. Being polite and giving some amount of respect to the interviewers goes a long way.

Contd... Google them, search them on LinkedIn Incognito. Try and understand their background and personality with the things they post. The roles they're in.... Keep faith! It's going to happen. All the best!
