Why would I need a teleprompter?
If you're a video content creator you may have struggled with your video recordings.
Well no matter how great a speaker we may be sometimes it can be really difficult to remember what we want to talk about. When I started off my videos were pretty bad!
Then I got better and better, but I still had the issue of trying to remember what I was talking about. Thus, what would happen would be that I would start talking, forget what I wanted to say, had to go back to look at my notes, record again etc.
I ended up with maybe 60 minutes of video which was edited down to maybe 9 minutes of actual (jumpy) video.
I say jumpy because every time you stop and start you may have moved slightly and then the flow is going.
Enter the teleprompter
A few months ago I got a physical teleprompter but for this to work you need to have two phones – one that records and one that shows your script.
I have to say it really made a difference.
However all the while I was being targeted by an app that would also do this – bigvu. This app seemed cool, basically you download an app, paste in your script and then using their built in recorder you read and record at the same time.
I liked the idea as really we all use our smart phones, however, the price made me pull back.
Then I saw it bigvu on appsumo on a lifetime deal – $69 for life.
I decided to review it below:
