Eye-to-Eye™ Prompting

Eye-to-Eye Prompting for Documentaries and Interviews

What's also been called an "Interitron", our Eye-to-Eye prompting brings direct-into-lens responses from your subject.

What is, essentially, two on-camera prompter rigs configured to frame both the subject of the interview, and the person doing the interview, your footage will show the subject speaking naturally, and comfortably, directly into the camera.
Our experienced operator will help set up the rig so that you can focus on great content in this recently popularized interview style for documentaries.

  • Qualified operator for delivery, setup, and adjust.
  • Per 10 hour day = $800

Please note that:
  • You'll need to provide an EXTRA camera for placement on the prompter in front of the interviewer.
  • BOTH cameras must output an NTSC/Composite signal for feeding the other prompter screen.
  • We highly recommend your sound department come prepared to mic the interviewer and feed a small anchor/speaker placed near the prompter in front of the subject. This makes it more natural for the person being interviewed, as he/she will hear the voice coming from the prompter screen rather than have to look at the interviewer's face in the screen, while hearing their voice come from somewhere off camera.
  • Our rates are PORTAL to PORTAL from San Francisco
  • Mileage is charged at the going rate for shoots outside of San Francisco
  • Parking charges will be added to invoice unless other arrangements are made
  • Please familiarize yourself will all of our Terms and Conditions.

A little more detail: How it works.

In a typical prompting situation, we would place a thru-the-lens prompter setup in front of your talent so that he could read his script while looking directly into the lens.

In this case, instead of feeding computerized text into that screen, we'll be feeding an image of the FACE of the interviewer. Your talent looks directly into his/her face, while also looking directly into the lens.

Now, conversely, your interviewer wants to be able to look at your talent... so a second prompter is set up that has the image of the subject in the prompter screen. This second rig also holds the camera that is pointing at the interviewer, and feeding the 'main' prompter.

It's, in short, a loop whereby each person is looking directly at the face of the other while also looking directly into camera. This produces a natural conversation of two people just talking to each other. And it gives you a final result of a your subject speaking directly to the audience/viewers of your video.
