Interrotron unit setup - Charleston

Interrotron Rental 

The Interrotron Mark III has two different units: The Director’s Unit allows you to evaluate exposure, depth of field, focus, framing, color saturation, etc. The Talent Unit is a modified, professional teleprompter that is sized to display a human face in the right proportion. The Mark II only consists of the talent unit and has the ability to accept a video signal from a second camera. It also, like the Mark III, has the ability to calm the talent because you’re able to seen the director’s face in front of the camera lens.

EyeDirect unit - Charleston

EyeDirect Rental

The EyeDirect and the Mark III are very similar in that they both allow the director and the talent to see each other. This ability relaxes the talent because they are able to see a face instead of the camera lens. If you are on a tighter budget, the EyeDirect is the better option. With the fitted Pelican case the unit weighs about 30 pounds and it is a tad bigger than an carry-on luggage.

Presidential Teleprompter and Podium - Charleston

Presidential Teleprompter Rental (aka Speech Prompter)

The presidential teleprompter is made up of two glass panels, set up on both sides of a lectern. The speaker looks at the panels to see a script or text. The two way mirror ensures that only the speaker can view the text, while the audience sees through the glass and can clearly view the speaker. This unit is often used at conferences, award shows, graduations, presidential speeches (hence the name).

About Charleston

Charleston, the oldest and largest South Carolina port city was founded in 1670. It was originally founded as Charles Town to honor King Charles II of England. With an estimated population of 134,385 it is known for its architecture, rich-history, cobblestone streets, mannerly people and restaurants. Charleston has a long, rich history with the film industry. Some of America’s earliest silent films were shot in the city, including The Edison Company’s The Southerners and Pathe Company’s How Could You Caroline? Charleston has continued to serve as a popular filming location, and the television show adaptation of Stephen King’s novel Mr. Mercedes is slated to shoot there this year.

Charleston is known for her old, Antebellum homes and strolling plantations. Cobblestone streets, horse drawn-carriages are still a wonderful sight in the downtown area which oozes in rich history

I am working for The American Movie Company as a producer and living here for going on five years now and I absolutely love it. I have the best job of anyone I know and I’m not afraid to brag on that a little.

There is a beautiful section of downtown, called Rainbow Row. It’s a long row of unique, multi-colored, restored Southern homes located inside the prestigious French Quarter district. The area overlooks the water and is densely sprinkled with beautiful hotels and eateries.

 

Our company has done several shoots there. Some dealt with its diverse history. Several clients have availed themselves of our various teleprompters. Some of the speakers at the events needed a bit of help in rehearsing and delivering their speeches.

I’m at a place in my life where I’m toying with the idea of directing and producing my own documentary. I’m considering ways to bring awareness to horses being used to further the tourist agenda while maintaining the charm and integrity of Charleston’s story as a proud resident. It’s still in the concept phase at this point.

 

It’s difficult to film or even visit , when family comes to town, The Battery Promenade area that boasts the rows of hot, sweaty overworked horses, waiting in line to give another tourist another tour of the same uneven cobblestone streets that are undoubtedly not intended for hooves. While I understand the picture they are painting, however I can’t help but consider the cost.

 

On a lighter note, The Southern cooking in this town is absolutely ridiculous if you consider yourself a food lover. You won’t find better fried chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens, black eyed peas, corn on the cob, barbecued ribs, or pickled pig feet no matter where you go. Don’t even get me started on the macaroni and cheese that is made and served here! No need to bring a belt.

 

Charleston isn’t a huge city. Its population is less that 200,000. It has its fair share of history so it should come as no surprise that it comes with its fair share of crime as well. The downtown area, although manicured in its tourist way can be a dangerous place after dark, so it’s always best to use your common sense no matter where you are travelling.

 

As a person who has had the unique opportunity of working in film spanning decades, I am proud to say that I have traveled the world. I have met so many wonderful people and seen unbelievable places that most people can only read about.

But at the end of the day, when I come back to Charleston and return to my office in this small, corner of the world, I feel the most at home. I’m surrounded by hardworking people. Kind people. People who care and want to contribute to making the world a bigger and brighter place. I’m rich in all the ways that really count.

Meet Seamus O’Halloran

Seamus O’Halloran has been fascinated by filmmaking since he was a young kid, though he never expected to work in the entertainment industry. After going to school in NYU, he connected with the AMC team in New York and became a teleprompter operator. Very enthusiastic from the get-go, Seamus rapidly learned all of AMC’s gear. Eventually, he began helping in the office in addition to prompting. Most recently, he has relocated to Charleston to head up AMC’s office there. Everyone in NYC misses him, but we’re excited to see what he does in Charleston!
