Though useful, teleprompters aren’t always the easiest for on-camera talent to use. In this article, i will give you a few tips you can implement for a more natural performance when using a teleprompter.
A teleprompter is basically glass that displays lines of speech for a speaker. The best options are those that project text directly in front of the camera lens so that the presenter can look directly into the camera lens. The device features a flat-display screen that is placed horizontally below the camera. Then, a transparent mirror is placed at a 40-degree angle to it so that the words are reflected back at the presenter.
Whatever your setup, the teleprompter should never appear in the shot.
Why use a Teleprompter?
The purpose of a teleprompter is to allow the presenter to deliver lines from the script without having to memorize them. It is very helpful for those who don’t have time to memorize an entire script or when you need to clearly deliver technical information.
Not every production will benefit from a teleprompter such as film or drama, but for a presentation they are fantastic when used well.
How do we use a Teleprompter?
Rehearsal & practice
Practice speaking while reading from the teleprompter to get used to it before your shoot. Try to maintain a natural tone and speed;
The teleprompter operator should make adjustments to the teleprompter’s scrolling speed rather than changing how you speak. It will feel and sound so much more authentic. This is where an experienced teleprompter operator makes a difference, because they can slow your speech down or speed up your dialogue.
Sometimes what sounds good on script doesn’t sound good rolling off the tongue. Different words and phrases are compatible with different speaking voices. The script may have been written by someone other than the speaker, but in the end, it needs to sound natural to the person delivering the lines.
Speakers should always read and say what is natural to them.
Though the script may be written a certain way, the speaker should go with the word that feels most natural to them — as long as it doesn’t change the meaning of the text.
In my experience try not to change the script on the day because some people become flustered.
Some companies have assistants to the director and they write the script, this can be a real pain in the ass if you need to make lots of changes on the day, so even if an assistant does write the script for you, try not to be a lazy bugger simply read the script over and over before the shoot.
If your the person who wrote the script then you should know what words you prefer to use.
So in hindsight it can be a good idea to either –
write your own script and rehearse this or rehearse and practice the script given to you well in advance.
Don’t panic if the timing runs out!
Many times recording video for someone who is presenting to camera you can return to the previous paragraph and make a pick up from the previous paragraph section or title.
for this reason many presentations are carried out with a 2 camera shoot, a main camera and a second camera offset on angle. This is used well in pickups to give a clean transition if the presentation breaks down and it also gives some more interest to the presentation. So don’t panic!
Teleprompters can be very useful in video production, but they don’t need to be followed word for word. Presenters should always take creative license and inject their own personalities and talents into their performances. Plus, the great thing about video is that you can always try again in another take. Sometimes, it can take a couple of tried to get the words out.
Regardless, teleprompters are great tools when you need too clearly and efficiently present information to the camera.
set up the software on screen for readability!
The prompter software we use is customizable, so take advantage of that if you can.
Many teleprompters allow you to choose the background colour, foreground colour, font size and typeface. It is best to customize it to suit the presenter. Set it up to promote the easiest reading for the speaker.
Pro tip: Keep the contrast high. White text on a black background is standard. This promotes the best readability for most.
Pro tip: print out extra copies so the producer or director can follow along.
Take a look at your or your presenter’s body language. If you or they are projecting a stiff, monotone performance, it will become quite clear as day that there’s a teleprompter being used. To avoid this, get comfortable with the script before the shoot. You don’t need to know the script by heart, but it helps to at least read it through to prevent any surprises in front of the camera. This will help you feel more prepared so you can be more comfortable in front of the camera.
