Save production time, crew expenses, editing costs and get more natural results with talent by having the script visible.
Teleprompters allow talent to look directly in the camera and fluidly have access to their lines.
Use your camera and photographer with our teleprompter while we operate the system, or we can provide an operator to control your existing system or a even photographer.
Any prompter can be set to run on its own, however it is really crucial to have an experienced operator adjust the prompter flow for the talent to match their pace; otherwise they will sound robotic and may have to wait for the words to scroll up before finishing a phrase. That often results in an awkward pause that requires either a retake or editing in post. If text is not positioned properly on the talent, in relation to the lens the talent’s eyes will look “squirrely” as they dart about on the page to follow text. Also, it helps to have someone to make script changes on-the-fly.
When running teleprompter one must have constant focus on the talent and the script. This puts one in an ideal position to direct sessions, create best-take files for editors, or supervise scripts for continuity.
To maximize production budgets we can handle any of these multiple-roles, if needed.
Here are a few examples of past productions.
Mark Wahlberg for Indian Motorycles Veterans Charity Ride
Queen Latifah playlist spots for Cricket Wireless.
Heidi Klum playlist spots for Wix.
Reggie Watts for Virgin Mobile Australia
Jeremy Renner, Feeding America PSA
Lexz Pryde with Snoop Dogg
