I’ve been making a bunch of videos for Machine of Death Kickstarter updates, and I love watching the particular brand of YouTube channel about making low-cost DIY camera equipment, whether it’s a camera stabilizer or a slider or a TelePrompTer (so capitalized because it’s a trademark).
The stabilizer and the slider I can approximate with some scrap wood and a skateboard, but I got to watching a few of the prompter videos and realized that, while I didn’t have all the stuff mentioned in the videos, I did have some other, similar stuff and could probably figure out how to build my own. I was fascinated by how simple the key element is — literally just a piece of glass — and thought I’d give it a try.
So here’s my DIY video, “Building a DIY TelePrompTer for $0.00, Using Just The Stuff I Already Have Lying Around.”
I assume you have all the same stuff, so go ahead and follow along.
