Our Crew of Prompter operators


Personable and Friendly

The often long hours, close confines and the challenge of creating a great production emphasize the need to choose crew members who work well with others.

Personable, yet professional, all of our people understand that a smile goes a long way toward creating a good prompting experience. We know a positive, friendly, attitude can help your talent feel relaxed and confident, and in turn, your client and crew will feel the same.


Skills & Experience

Magic Teleprompting was the first company in the Bay Area to provide prompting services to the industry. We were also the first to prompt with computers, and the first to not only use, but to create, software for the Macintosh.

We thoroughly train our operators in our software and our hardware. And while good training is important, experience in the field teaches the ins and outs of being part of a production team. Between all of us, we have over 40 years of prompting experience to help your production go smoothly.


Meet the Magic Team:

 

Japji bio picJapji Khalsa: Founder and CEO of Magic Teleprompting, Inc., Japji has been working in the production industry since 1974. As a stage manager at KQED, one of his roles was to run the teleprompter, where he first began learning the special skills of prompting.

As a spanish speaker, in 1984 he was hired to prompt for the Spanish News Network's (SIN) anchor station at the Democratic and Republican National conventions. Realizing that the San Francisco Bay Area had no prompting services, Japji invested in his first (Paper scroll) prompter, and began to focus his freelance career on prompting. Founding Magic Teleprompting in 1989, he's worked on many high-profile - even historic - events over the course of over thirty years of prompting.

Japji currently runs Magic Teleprompting, prompts in the field for Magic, and about 1-2 weeks a month travels as the personal prompter operator for a high profile musician/band.



personel bio picErin Rockmore: Having worked for Magic Teleprompting for over six years, Erin has worked on many high profile shows and campaigns. Some of Erin's professional experiences consist of Apple Corporation, Davies Symphony Hall, Mayor Newsome and Lee's State of the City/inaugural addresses, FLOTUS, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Clinton Global Initiative, political ads, national commercials, convention keynotes, and has gone on tour with professional musicians (e.g. Liza Minnelli, Jimmy Buffett, and Josh Groban).

Having received her BA from Pennsylvania State University in linguistics, Erin can and has teleprompted in many languages; such as Cantonese, French, Spanish, and Japanese.

Erin always brings a professional demeanor and calmness to allow each person to feel comfortable in knowing Erin is waiting to go at his or her pace.

Erin is also a proud member of IATSE Local 16, and can fulfill any and all union requirements.

personel bio picMeghan Khalsa: Meghan moved to San Francisco from upstate New York in 2009, and as part of taking a break from her career as a Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic, she's found she enjoys the diversity and comraderie of video and stage production. Friendly and professional, she's a great addition to any video or stage production. She's also a Spanish speaker, is IATSE friendly, and can be requested as your operator.
