One look in any of the industry trades and you'll see a lot of ads for various teleprompters from $899 to $1500.
I needed to do stand-ups for a low budget infomercial and a prompter person wasn't available near where I needed to do this. The second kind of prompter set-up involves the same principles as above but the box that encloses the set-up is eliminated and all you are left with is a monitor with a mirror hinged on one side sort of like how a book opens.
You can use anything from sheet metal to more rigid steel for the enclosure just as long as it will make a ridged box capable of holding the glass. After cutting the metal pieces to the appropriate size necessary to create a box that will fit around the monitor (I used a Dremel tool with a cut off wheel to cut the metal), I needed a way to attach the two sides of the box to the top piece.
Next, I lined the side panels up to the top panel, marked the hole location and drilled out the two holes in each side panel.

Above: The attached L bracket with the additional stopper at the bottom and velcro on the track where the glass will rest. And for the final touch I needed something to prevent light from spilling into the box from the camera side. In my scenario I only needed it to sit in front of the camera so I went with the free sanding method. Such a project will cost you about $50 in materials, at least $100 for a monitor and $50 for the glass. Next, I'll show you how to make a 15 inch version with a cool V- shape design that folds itself into the monitor face for easy transport.

Thinking of the extra cost involved in getting someone, and knowing how I've been a one-man-band all along on this reduced budget project, I decided that adding the job of prompter operator to my list of self-executed positions wasn't going to break the bank.


But since I was doing single person stand-ups I realized that the 7 inch monitor I have laying around would make a great monitor for my needs. The traditional set-up's basically a box with a monitor that lies with the screen facing up. In my case I used 16 gauge steel, a thin but sturdy steel that you can purchase in small sheets at hardware stores such as the Home Depot. I cut pieces of aluminum L shaped metal and riveted these brackets to what would become the top panel of the box. You are looking at the inside of the top piece of the box frame with screw glued and all painted. There are a number of ways I could have attached the three sided box to the monitor such as creating a bracket the monitor rested in or by using using velcro.
I used more of the L bracket and attached a piece to either side of the inside of the sides of the prompter box with rivets making a tray the glass could lay in. Notice the reflection of the computer monitor and keyboard in what is the mirrored side of the glass. If you don't stop the light from being seen by the talent it washes out the reflected lettering on the glass. As the pictures below showed, I took a six inch Matthews plate and placed the stud into a grip knuckle attached to a stand.
It's an inexpensive solution to purchasing a prompter, as long as you are handy and like building things. In case you are interested you can purchase a 7 inch LCD monitor for a bit over $100 these days. A 45 degree piece of glass (slightly coated with a mirror-like surface) reflects the monitors image to anyone standing in front of the lens. I've seen folks make hinged-type boxes but I decided on a simple but effective way, using wing screws which I could screw the box together with. Notice how this glue expands to three times its size engulfing he screw like it's been welded. Since I will use this configuration in the future, I decided to do the same thing to the monitor that I did to the top panel, drill holes and glue nuts inside so I could easily screw the side panels to it.
The glass I used is a piece of glass that has a minor reflective coating on it one side (like one way mirror but not such a mirror and not so dark).


I also attached a small piece to the bottom of the bracket to act as a stop so the glass would not slide down. Prompter people use a simple method of attaching the sticky side of Velcro all the way around the inside of the box on the lens side, then using a piece of black material simply stick it to all sides.
Keep in mind that you don't need high rez of super color rendition as a prompter plays in black and white, so any inexpensive monitor from a 7 inch like I used to a 15 inch computer monitor that costs $150 will work fine. Since my standup's will be outside, I prefer the older style box enclosure as it creates a dark area around the monitor. I used a textured paint and baked it on by painting the final assembly, then placing it in an oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.
This would allow me to use the monitor on it's own when I needed and as a prompter monitor. I put a small clear rubber stopper on the back of the tray and added the softer side of velcro strips to the bottom of the tack so the glass had something to rest on. Since my monitor has a Anton Bauer fitting and battery I simply added a piece of velcro to the top of the plate and the battery and used four small bungies for extra support.
This protects the image from any splashes of food or oil and can be hygienically wiped down. Remember in the end, it has to hold a piece of glass so don't go too thin, like sheet metal.
The following visual presentation is not the actual L bracket but done after the fact so I could show you how it is done. I simply asked to see what varieties they had and found one that cut down light the least, while offering a slightly reflective surface so the monitor could be seen by the reader. There are many more ways of making a freestanding adaptor and if need be a metal or wooden riser so it can be attached to the front of the camera and tripod. There are also many more of Lucy's wall artworks to view at the showhome as well as a glass wall art in the bathroom.
