Teleprompters in the Rain

Teleprompters and laptop computers in the rain. Costly electronic devices and also water. What could be far better?

Still, when I’m asked ahead up with an option, I’m happy for the difficulty.

I ‘d like to share some solutions and ideal practices for teleprompting in the rainfall or various other wet problems, like watercrafts.

One jib-teleprompter-in-the-rainoccasion was for Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s 2006 commencement as The golden state Guv in Sacramento. We were told the weather prediction which I would should position my video camera teleprompter on a jib.

Gigantic 55 gallon professional garbage bags are your good friend. I covered the camera in addition to the jib motors in such a way that any rain wouldn’t pool (affecting the weight as well as balance.) I also needed to stop any water that might drip down cords to the display. I got clear plastic bags to cover the monitor display.

Everything worked completely. Fortunately, it quit drizzling after the occasion, so tear-down was simple. I still needed to allow the cases and also various other exposed equipment dry out for a couple of days … so, perhaps I would certainly recommend risk pay or an extra equipment fee if I did this once again. For more information about teleprompters in the rain go to www.neiltanner.com

How do I match scrolling titles with a live presenter?

The answer is a good editor and teleprompter software of course:)

Most editing software can make scrolling titles for your credits. However, when you need to match what a presenter is saying at a live event, that’s another matter. The presenter could be perfectly in sync with the video which is what most people plan on.

What else can I do with a teleprompter?

Teaching your old teleprompter new tricks.

You only have so much time with a busy Dual-Camera-teleprompter-300x225.jpgexecutive. So, needing to do multiple takes on a close-up shot and THEN doing it all over again on a medium or wide angle can seem like a waste of their time. Before 4K cameras, I came up with the idea of placing two cameras in the same teleprompter hood. This allows both cameras to record at their desired focal length. And the presenter just sees the one set of words as usual. When edited, the two camera positions look to be the same.

Send a laptop camera feed to a teleprompter and you have a budget interrotron.

It’s not perfect, but wow is it quick in a pinch. We use this technique when there’s no room or time to set up the second full interrotron station. Just turn on the PhotoBooth (Apple) or similar application in PC, and send the signal as usual to the teleprompter. Position your PhotoBooth window on your desktop to match where the lens is on the real camera and teleprompter hood. It helps if your monitor flips the input, so you can control the left/right flip as desired. To read more about teleprompter go to www.neiltanner.com
