“I needed a teleprompter to help me make better looking videos for my website on woodblock printmaking, so I built this one, using nothing but a few pieces of scrap wood and glass, and only free software.

When recording videos, I discovered that I’m not much of an actor … namely, I can’t remember my lines! I tried to get around this by printing out a large-type ‘script’ and hanging it up next to the camera, but when I looked at the resulting video, it was obvious that I was reading something, and not looking directly into the camera. There was only one solution … build a teleprompter!

Here’s how I did it, in just a few minutes, using a couple of scraps of wood, a scavenged piece of glass, and an old shirt …”Link.

  1. That’s really great. I think it would be good for podcasts, as well, if one had a script. Thats for posting this–I’m sure I’ll find a use for it someday.

  3. I had a student last year who made a similar teleprompter set up for our studio. two monitors running through a vga splitter laying flat perpendicular to the camera, and a one-way mirror up to the camera at a 45 degree angle. Change the white balance a little and its completely functional.
