How to use a teleprompter | St Louis Video Editing


Video and the internet have changed the way we communicate. But one thing has not changed: the impact of a human face in communication. Humans naturally connect with the image of a human face…whether in a video or in person. And many times, that face on video is talking straight into the camera…. And a teleprompter.

A teleprompter is a tool that displays scripted material in front of a lens, allowing a spokesman to deliver messages while looking directly into the camera lens. It’s an extremely useful tool.  With recent improvements in screen technology, teleprompters have become smaller and more accessible.

As useful as it is, it is not a magic bullet. There are a few techniques to make it work well.

It’s important to remember that a teleprompter is only as good as its script

Write your script to be spoken, not read. Use conversational language that works for the audience you are trying to reach. Shorter words are better, and so are short sentences..

Along with trying to speak to the audience in a language they understand, it’s also important for the spokesperson to be comfortable with the language. It the presenter is struggling with long sentences or unfamiliar language, the audience can feel lost.

There’s no substitute for practice. The more you practice and personalize the text, the more you’ll put meaning to the words.

Practice reading your script aloud. Take it into the bathroom, and practice reading it into a mirror. Change the language to match your speaking style. Make it yours.

A teleprompter can also be used as guide for an interview or testimonial, when the person being recorded is not looking directly into the lens.

Teleprompters help make for a professional delivery of your message.

Working with non professional talent on video?

You have to apply many takes and work with the talent to get just the right responses. Nothing is left to chance when one edits. If necessary, you should use a teleprompter, this can work wonders in little as five or six takes to get the proper delivery and inflections.

Video editing begins when you shoot!

We can fulfill your editing success from the very beginning of the shoot.

Getting the Right Location and Location Access – A documentary is more than just talking heads; you need to shoot some on-location footage to really bring your audience into the story. But be prepared for trouble if you accidentally find yourself trespassing on private property during your shoot! We’ll teach you exactly how to avoid sticky situations by convincing the right people to give you the right permission ahead of time. Learn the different kinds of location access and what you’ll need to do to deal with each. Understanding these key differences and getting property owners on board with your shoot is a great way to get your documentary off on the right foot.

Preparing for Great Interviews – Interviews are the lifeblood of a good documentary, but getting a good interview response starts long before your interviewee even enters the room. Learn how to prepare the interview room so that it looks great on video and helps to communicate the same themes you want to capture from your interviewee’s words. Find out what legal forms you need to have prepared in advance so that you can make the full use of your interviewee’s candid words.

Directing Interviews – Seasoned reporters always seem to get such great quotes and so can you. Getting good interview footage is all about asking the right questions. One misstep could set the wrong tone for the whole interview or, worse, get your subject to clam up and refuse to talk openly. We’ll show you how to lead an interview so that your subject feels so at-ease that he’ll want to talk for hours. Get interviewees to share all the intimate thoughts and shocking revelations that make for a riveting documentary!

Although often overlooked, post production is a hugely important component to the video production process.  Among other reasons, this is because great editing typically doesn’t draw attention to itself; it just works.  Bad editing, on the other hand, sticks out like a sore thumb and can derail an otherwise high-quality production right out of the gate.  The first step to great post production comes when it’s captured.   If you’ve produced your content with ECG Productions, you can rest assured that you’ll be starting from the highest quality 24-bit source material, mixed seamlessly on set and painstakingly organized along with your video assets.  If you’ve come to us with your own assets, you may have excellent quality recordings or you may need us to clean things up a bit.  Either way, we’re ready to edit with you!
