AUSTIN BECKONS!

SWSW IS ON THE HORIZON

MARCH IS AROUND THE CORNER!

 

MAKE PLANS NOW!

 

I am elated to be in Austin. I accepted a friend’s invitation to stay rent-free at her place a few weeks before the much-anticipated SXSW Film Festival in early March.

The American Movie Company whose main office is in New York has sent me here to join their local staff. I will be wearing many hats both as a production office coordinator and as a seasoned Teleprompter Operator.

Attention musicians, comics and film folk:

 

 

 

In March, gear up for the gig of a lifetime and head towards South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas.

The city extends its welcome to you and a target audience of at least of 70,000 industry professionals, if past years are an indicator of things to come.

Austin gained fame worldwide for live music and has become an increasingly respected film and arts scene. You need to be at this iconic global music-and-more industry event.

 

 

 

For 2018, the event includes five distinct but related festivals:

Interactive, Mar 9-13

Film, Mar 9-17

Music, Mar 13-17

Comedy, Mar 9-17

Gaming, Mar 9-17

If any of these strike your fancy and are your passion, you won’t want to miss out.

 

 

More than 60,000 attendees jammed this music mecca in 2015. Austin had everything, including more than 200 live-music venues, and has only improved in the three years since I last attended SXSW.

An interesting statistic – This year, US News named Austin as the #1 most livable city in the country. I questioned the accuracy of such a claim, but there you have it.

The event is wild, passionate, well organized and turns the city upside down, residents say. They love it.

The city’s unofficial motto:

Keep Austin Weird!

 

 

For anyone connected to the music or entertainment industry, SXSW is a must! Think of it as an investment. How do you get the most from your event dollars? Follow these pro tips and up your game.

Reserve your equipment NOW. While global outfits like the American Movie Company and its subsidiary TeleprompterRental.com will be providing performers with must-have-gear such as Teleprompters, Confidence Monitors, etc. you will want to secure your crew and critical supplies ASAP.

Please call Bill Milling at 917-414-5489 or Jocelyn Savoie at 646-617-6535

 

 

 

Increasingly, singers rely on Confidence Monitors, devices that scroll lyrics, the set order and anything else the performer needs to remember.

Said unit is set unobtrusively onstage, and blends in with amps and other electronics on the stage. Only the performer sees the crystal clear screen. This removes the possibility of cringe-inducing moments when lyrics are forgotten.

What if you are making a pitch to an audience of potential investors, clients or partners? If you are a pro, you already know this, but it bears repeating for newbies and the less experienced.

 

Use a teleprompter.

There are different types to fit your needs. Consider the standard through-the-lens unit or the Presidential Teleprompter. You can free your mind to connect with your audience without worrying about what comes next. And YOU set the pace. Your professional prompter operator is there to follow you. It’s like a dance where you are always leading.

Whatever your goal at SXSW, remember to get professional video of your appearances. Use the video to promote your business and career. Put it on your web site. Make it part of your digital portfolio. Post it on Facebook. Make it the foundation of a documentary about you.

Don’t miss the chance to get top-quality video you can cut and re-cut to get the most out of resources you have committed at SXSW.

I am over the moon to be here and to be part of this incredible event.

Join in!

Meet Hugh Donaghy

Hugh Donaghy is our friendly office manager in Austin, TX! Ever since he was a kid, he dreamed of being on set, though as a child, he wanted to be an actor like John Wayne. Later, in college, he discovered that his true passion lay behind the scenes. Production managing became his main interest, and he has worked on several short films and indie features. More recently, he became a member of AMC’s Austin office staff, where he puts his skills to use in keeping everything ship-shape! Energetic and kind, we’ve loved having him work with us.

Meet Angela Rivera and Rocky

Angela Rivera has worked with the company as a prompter operator since 2015. She graduated from University of Texas in Austin with a degree in Radio-Television-Film. Angela loves to write and produce short documentaries. She once took a 3 month trip to drive across the nation and capture the country’s natural beauty. When she’s not on set, Angela can be found watching sports, getting ready for a good barbecue. She is also the proud owner of Rocky, a grumpy yet loving dog who loves to lounge around.

Blue eyed young man -

I turned 21 today! The best present I could’ve ever asked for was getting promoted at my job here at The American Movie Company. OMG!!!! I’ve been working here for two years and I love it. The staff feels like family. Who else hosts cupcake Fridays and lets you bring your dog to work?

 

Neville, dog with colorful collar

 

I was just promoted to teleprompter operator. I’ve worked hard to get here and put in over 500 hours to learn the ins and outs of the craft and the skills required. I may be young but I am dedicated and very focused. I take my job and future career here very seriously. I know it’s a big deal when someone places their trust in my hands, literally. I appreciate their confidence in me.

 

I am very proud of my accomplishments (I say with all due modesty) and my incredible team. We really are a family here. I feel so lucky. I’ve always loved film. From the very first time I went to the movies and the house went dark and the screen lit up I knew I just had to be a part of that magic. I just knew it. I felt it in my bones.

 

 

My mom was involved in theatre at The Moody here in town. She was quite wonderful. She just can’t find the time anymore. (This doesn’t stop her from picking up the end of a broom handle and belting out Broadway Baby). I’m lucky to come from a whole family of creative people.

 

I’ve worked on some amazing projects with this company. As a production assistant, and later as a production coordinator, I have juggled all kinds of tasks and have really learned how to navigate my way around a set. But, now I feel like this is my time to shine. Most of the operators here have pet names for their prompters. I do too! We are such an imaginative group of diverse people.

 

 

I’m obsessed with politics and am proficient at mounting and scrolling the Presidential Teleprompters. Fingers crossed, I can, nah, I will be a part of the 2020 campaigns! These devices are used by politicians seeking the highest office in the land and by anyone giving a speech to a large group of people. I find it amusing that they are called “Presidential”. They give the impression that the speaker is totally in control and self-confident. The audience does not see the words scrolled on those glass panels. One of the reasons I love this job is that I get to meet such interesting people. Can’t wait to see where I’ll prompt next.

Thank you for considering our Austin Teleprompting Services
