Testimonials and Teleprompters

With the rapid change in how products and services are now advertised and sold, traditional direct response strategies are not always the best answer. For some of our clients, what they really need are customer testimonials for their product landing pages, or they need professionally shot product and b-roll footage or demonstration footage for use on home shopping channels and other broadcast applications.

Video interviews and testimonials provide a powerful way for our clients to connect with their audiences. Interviews are a critical component of many of the videos we create and produce. We pride ourselves on producing attention-getting and engaging video interviews that inspire action.

We ensure that the video production process goes as smoothly as possible, from start to finish. We assemble the right talent, crew, and locations to accomplish the necessary steps to achieve your communication goals.

Studio video production with teleprompter

Video and the internet have changed the way we communicate. But one thing has not changed: the impact of a human face in communication. Humans naturally connect with the image of a human face…whether in a video or in person. And many times, that face on video is talking straight into the camera…. And a teleprompter.

A teleprompter is a tool that displays scripted material in front of a lens, allowing a spokesman to deliver messages while looking directly into the camera lens. It’s an extremely useful tool. With recent improvements in screen technology, teleprompters have become smaller and more accessible.

As useful as it is, it is not a magic bullet. There are a few techniques to make it work well.

It’s important to remember that a teleprompter is only as good as its script

Write your script to be spoken, not read. Use conversational language that works for the audience you are trying to reach. Shorter words are better, and so are short sentences..

Along with trying to speak to the audience in a language they understand, it’s also important for the spokesperson to be comfortable with the language. It the presenter is struggling with long sentences or unfamiliar language, the audience can feel lost.

There’s no substitute for practice. The more you practice and personalize the text, the more you’ll put meaning to the words.

Practice reading your script aloud. Take it into the bathroom, and practice reading it into a mirror. Change the language to match your speaking style. Make it yours.

A teleprompter can also be used as guide for an interview or testimonial, when the person being recorded is not looking directly into the lens.

We have a lot of experience helping clients be “the best they can be” on camera. For more information, please give us a call.

We work closely with businesses, organizations, and industry professionals to bring their stories to life through stunning video production that builds awareness and grows loyalty. We create video marketing content that speaks to their audiences and meets their creative communication needs.

There are many ways to create a video testimonial, all with different advantages.

We explore how your business can ask customers and employees to record appropriate testimonials, what you should include in a video testimonial, as well as how such customer review videos can help your business grow.

We work in our studio or a camera crew is sent to a predetermined location, usually a customer’s home or office. They set up their equipment and interview one or more people. We will also capture some b-roll footage of the location, the interview subject at work, or other footage that places the content of the video in context.

From there all the footage is reviewed for editing and post-production. The end result is a universal digital file suitable for web and social media delivery.

We work well with non professional talent – St Louis Video Studio

When you are working with non-professionals on the set, rehearsal is essential. Make sure your actors are very familiar with their blocking (the movement of the actor from one point to another), motivation for their lines and any “business” you may want them to perform while acting their parts. Business is a film term for the actions the actor may be doing to make the character authentic.

If you are shooting a scene with a mother, you may have her making sandwiches for her children before they run off to school. The making of the sandwiches is the actor’s business. A chef may be preparing food, a doctor performing surgery or a police officer cleaning a gun. It is essential that the business be well-rehearsed, so it looks very natural.  Acting is more than delivering lines. It is inhabiting the character in such a way that it becomes real. Nothing is more distracting than watching a character perform an action he doesn’t understand or has not practiced and perfected. Non-professionals, if typecast, can perform quite well if they relate to their characters and are familiar with the type of business their character is assigned.
