Tips for Talent
Picture a friend or Colleague
behind prompter mirror.
You'll be looking directly into the lens, or audience, and it will help connect with your message.
YOU control the speed!
The prompter operator is following YOU. If you pause, the op will pause. If you speak faster, the op will scroll faster.
Focus on the MESSAGE!
Remember, they're just words... until spoken in context! By pausing normally, taking a breath, using punctuation to help pace yourself, the message will more easily make it into your audience's ears, brains and hearts.
Avoid Prompter panic!
Breeaaathe... relax. Blink occasionally, smile often, and relax your shoulders. It's ok to pause occasionally if you need to compose yourself or re-focus.
Ad-libbing is (mostly) Ok!
Especially when speaking live, there are moments when you might want to interject a personal anecdote, or to thank an audience member. If you do so, the prompter op will PAUSE where you had just been speaking. Then, be sure to start back up at the next line of prompter text.
Your vocal chords are one of the first body parts to de-hydrate. Drink plenty of water to keep your voice clear. Consider having room temp water nearby for a quick refresher.
For video shoots, STAY FOCUSED at the end!
It's natural to want to look away toward the camera person or director as soon as you've finished the promtper text. Avoid the urge to do so...and insteand... smile... and HOLD your gaze into the prompter until after the director says cut. This gives the editors time to edit the end of your spoken words.
Prep your Script!
When writing or preparing your script, keep the formatting SIMPLE. You can work in any word processor, but avoide lots of tabs, columns, boxes, background colors, etc. There's no need to use a large font, as the prompter op will prepare your script for large text output.
