Next Livestream June 18 -- Infomercials Aren’t the Answer: Unlocking Video's Potential in Marketing


Freelance Roles

Sharon is an owner/operator of a field teleprompter kit that she’s brought to support productions of all sizes. It’s been used throughout northern Virginia and the Washington DC metro area for political ads, CEO messaging, training videos, and live events… including the first Obama inauguration and the annual Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, DC.

When you are conducting a video shoot, there’s not time or budget for re-shoots. If the client misses a word, or mispronounces something, it needs to be caught and corrected that day, because if it’s not noticed until the footage is in the edit suite, it’s too late. Sometimes a sentence just doesn’t work, even though it looked okay in written form initially. With an eye for detail, and her skill of writing for the ear, rather than the eye, Sharon’s clients appreciate what she brings to jobs that she is on.

She’s used her teleprompter on all kinds of cameras and setups, from standard body large format cameras, to DSLRs, to having it run to confidence monitors at conferences, or large format monitors in large venues with audiences.  If a presidential prompter is needed, she’s happy to make referrals.
