A Full-fledged iPad Teleprompter…Word!
If you follow Down and Dirty DV at all, you’ve no doubt heard one of my occasional rants about the outrageous cost of teleprompters ($1200+ most models) which are a vital tool, especially if you do instructional, corporate or any other kind of scripted non-fiction production. Only in the last year and a half with the advent of the iPad did filmmakers have an affordable option for a teleprompter with several inexpensive teleprompter apps that cost under $10 that did the job just as well as their grossly-overpriced predecessors. Holding or mounting the iPad next to the camera works almost as good as the real thing, but if there was an affordable way to turn it into a full-fledged teleprompter with a mirror and stand to allow talent to look directly into the lens…that would be the Bombdiggity, right?
