    This was brought to my attention. Pretty cool if you want to scale up the prompter

    This is brought to you from fold3d.com which has a great paper LCD hood for those bright days on this page http://www.bitmaster.com.au/fold3d/models.html I’ll be sure to purchase his paper models since I am into paper models and encourage you to do so as well. Great guy to boot!

    your voice is out of sync… cool new site.

    The voice out of sync is something you tube was kind enough to empart on the file. Or at least amplify it, I will do my best to correct it next time thanks for letting me know

    Ben just watched the first episode and thought it was great. My only concern is you didn’t show me the prompter in action.

  8. Ben November 30, 2009 at 11:34 pm #

    Ryan you can see it in action at 4:12 in the video

    Also you will see there is an instructable at http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-build-TelePrompter-for-your-video-camera/ and also embedded under the video in this post you will find the instructable with this embedded video

    I just realized that the last comment could look snotty and it was never intended that way. I do realize the flaw in the episode and will be doing my best not to repeat it and make sure that the builds are more comprehensive

    I loved the show guys, since you guys are taking project request I would love to see how to do some of the various plastic molding techniques.

  11. Ben December 3, 2009 at 8:55 am #

    Love to do some molding techniques. Any particular material you are looking to mold? I have a friend and movie prop maker that can help with this and he is an official expert… :)
