Los Angeles Prompter Rental (AutoCue)
Price: $845 for a 10 Hour Day
Delivered by operator – software included.
This through-the-lens prompter mounts directly on your tripod and camera using our sliding 15mm dual gold plate rod system. The talent looks directly into the lens to read the copy preserving perfect eye line. When on set the usual set up time is less than half an hour. We are often asked for the largest monitor. Bigger is not always better. The issue here is that once you get one larger than 19″ the reader can’t take in all the copy without obvious eye movement. Usage of larger monitors should be limited. Exceptions, of course, can be made. For example, if there is a significant distance between them or if the speaker has poor eyesight my previous admonishment goes out the window!
No charge for delivery within the city but there is a fee of .56 cents per mile plus any tolls. We would be happy to calculate this in advance should you wish.
Price: $250/Day | $750 3 Day Week. Add on an iPad for $25
The EyeDirect functions like the standard Mark III Interrotron in that both talent and director are able to see each other “face to face” and can interpret body language as well. All the while this allows the talent to maintain perfect eye contact with the lens. Like the Mark III, this unit relaxes the talent who see a human face rather than the cold eye of the camera.
It comes in a custom-fitted Pelican case which protects it while being shipped. The case weighs 30 lbs and is just a bit larger than the typical airline carry-on bag. The case has a retractable handle and wheels to ease transportation.

Interrotron Mark III Rental (Director’s Unit and Talent Unit)
Price: $945 for a 10 Hour Day (with professional operator).
The Mark III unit was invented by Errol Morris, the Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker. He used the Interrotron to get great “face to face” interviews with the famous or infamous but nonprofessional people. Morris’ wife, Julia Sheehan, coined the word “Interrotron” which is a combination of the words “Interview” and “Terror”. The unit also serves to relax the talent. This is especially true with those not used to being in front of the camera.
The Mark III rig is especially useful with children. Telling a child to “keep looking into the lens” is most often an exercise in futility. But when kids see a smiling person speaking to them from in front of the lens they are naturally drawn to that face. The Interrotron not only saves shooting time and, therefore, money, it often gets the best response on the first take. This is conducive to a good atmosphere on set. Everyone’s enthusiasm is revved up!
Presidential Teleprompter Rental (aka Speech Prompter)
Price: $995/10 Hour Day (with a professional operator).
This prompter consists of two glass panels that are set up on either side of a podium. Although the speaker sees the script reflected on the glass, the audience sees the speaker through the glass without seeing the text. This setup is usually used for live events, so it’s a great idea to have the operator arrive earlier than most to rehearse with talent and make any necessary alterations in the script, adjust font size etc. Anything to make reading easier.
Need a prompter for a live event but don’t have a podium?
A Confidence Monitor may be a better option. For more information about this unit, click here.
19″ Monitors OR 1x 32″/36″ Monitor on Stand (with a professional operator)
For additional larger monitors and/or unique setups, please call us at 917.414.5489.
It’s common for most speakers to stand behind the podium. However, performers/singers like to walk around the stage and at times actually move out into the audience itself. In cases like this, we suggest you use one or more of our Confidence Monitors. These are small, “flat screen” HD monitors which can receive any signal from a teleprompter.
iPad Teleprompter Rental/EyePrompter Rental
Price: $95 without iPad; $120 with iPad
This unit is available for in-office pickup and/or shipping only. This easy to use
This easy to use device is good for low budget and student productions. It’s size, along with the fact that it folds flat, also makes it a very portable unit. Please note that most iPad prompting software does not allow for adjustments in scrolling speed, so the talent must keep up with the software. The unit sits on a small light stand or low C-stand (typical 750 stud) which is not included. We do supply the adaptor.
The Ear Prompt aka In Ear Teleprompter
Click on the button below and then call Bill Milling at 917-414-5489 for types, availability, and pricing.
Podium Prompter (Podium AutoCue)
Price: $645/10 Hours (with a professional operator)
The Podium Prompter is a thin teleprompter monitor placed on top of the podium out of sight of the audience. The cable is dressed down the inside of the podium and out to the operator offstage. The speaker glances down at the top of the podium as if he/she were simply looking at notes and then returns his/her gaze to the audience.
Occasionally, there is a need for several speakers to share the same podium at a live event. They may be of varying heights so that the teleprompter may need to be adjusted up or down for each individual. Having an assistant rush onstage to adjust the prompter height is not a good way to handle this.
Enter the Rise and Fall “Robotic” Presidential Teleprompter. In rehearsal, our operator sets the height of the two glass “paddles” for optimum comfortable reading level for each speaker. Then during the live event, he/she robotically adjusts the prompter height from a nearby location.
This unit is available in New York and San Francisco but can be shipped to other cities. Our Manhattan robotic prompter has served Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Nantucket, Newark, Atlantic City, Hartford, Westchester and the Hamptons.
Price: $1695 Rise and Fall “Robotic” Teleprompter

I now call Los Angeles home. My interests include travel, photography, writing, reading, film, and Netflix!
Helen Hawkins – Production Coordinator, Teleprompter Operator
It feels like yesterday when I, Helen, (on the left) first saw the huge, iconic Hollywood sign, perched above the hills in Los Angeles. It was just as magical and far more real than the countless times I had seen it featured in more than 50 feature films. I am an unabashed movie buff. Actually, that sounds silly. I am more than that. I am a cineaste! That sounds better.
Los Angeles is without a doubt the king of the movie industry. It is an obvious statement. It is home to most major studios, full of history. Can’t name them all, but of paramount (see what I did there?) importance are Paramount Pictures, Universal, Warner Brothers et al. I came to the right place to immerse myself in the film industry. I couldn’t have felt more fortunate to finally live in such an amazing city. The only thing I needed now was a job in that realm.
When I lived in Boston I worked for a production company. The crew was terrific. They were receptive to my questions about all aspects of the shoots. I gained experience being on set and knew what each job entailed. When I got to LA, I was so excited. I considered myself an ideal employee and took my job search very seriously. I was astounded at the number of people who were also looking for work in the industry.
My optimism and determination paid off. I was hired by the American Movie Company as a production coordinator and eventually came to work for Teleprompter Rental a subsidiary company. As the title implies, they deal with renting those and other devices. After extensive training and learning about the equipment I now consider myself quite a good professional and go out regularly on the most amazing gigs. With the utmost discretion, we work with A-List celebrities, political figures, and exceptional regular folk!
When in the presence of someone I’ve admired from afar I may feel jittery but, don’t think me strange, as soon as the copy begins to scroll my nerves subside. I feel almost out of body because I am so present and confident in what I am doing.
Allow me to brag a little. Over the years I have worked with some of the best in the business. I have traveled the world and assisted in TED talks and myriad public service announcements for just about every cause imaginable.
I am appreciative of the atmosphere, the professionalism, and the kinship that exists at this company. It is with both pride and pleasure that I get up every morning and get to call this my job.
Our Professional Operators: Hollywood Office
Before an operator can go out on their own on a professional prompter gig, they first must shadow a senior operator for a minimum of 500 hours and then pass a rigorous “hands-on” test with every piece of gear.
Lori and her team work closely together and have become a close-knit, mutually supportive “work family”.
Ranger, our new mascot
While we like our prompters we LOVE Ranger. He was a rescue, brought back to the Hollywood office by Lori. We are all crazy about him. Do you blame us?
