The CEO of Kaiser Permanente is sitting in the TV studio, reading from our camera mount teleprompter. Three takes later, he’s off to catch an important flight.
What you don’t know is that he was kept waiting for hours while another company’s teleprompter repeatedly failed. And, once they developed a work-around, their teleprompting software failed. The production company then called us. Since we store 15+ teleprompters in our home office, we were able to drive directly there. We met with the camera operator and producer to assess the situation. We then quickly set up our prompter, loaded their script file, and re-formatted it for teleprompting. We did one rehearsal to make sure the CEO was satisfied. Just three takes later, “It’s a wrap.” The CEO was able to make his flight, the production company got their shot, and they didn’t waste a whole day’s budget.
