Best Remote Video Production Services
100% Remote Directing
Your director in one city can remotely look through the main camera shooting the talent in another city. The talent sees the face of the director projected on a two-way mirror in front of the lens. So, there is a face to face, director to actor interaction.
100% Remote Teleprompting
Our operator in our NYC or Hollywood Studio remotely operates the teleprompter on your set. We can ship you a SteadiCam-type prompter which easily attaches to the camera rods or we can send a local prompter operator to set you up.
The talent is in one location and the director is across town or across the country.
100% Remote 4K Production
We ship a complete 4K camera, Mic, Ring Light package along with our Skytronn System. Our Tech remotely helps your talent set it up. There is a complete video set up guide on our site. The director directs right through the lens as above. After the recording, the talent ships the cards back. (Two card recording, one for the client, one for the editor for redundancy.)
One Person Remote 4K Production
If the talent will allow one Covid tested person on site, we send a local cinematographer, with a professional 4K camera, sound and lighting package. He also brings our remote Skytronn System so the director can interact from another location.
Demand For Remote Video Production Has Never Been Higher.
And yes, It’s certainly Covid-related.
When we are all back to normal, it’s logical to assume that directors may still not want to fly to another city to work with talent or,for that matter, to fly the talent to meet the director when remote video production is now possible and so easy.

Remote video production, especially in the middle of a Covid epidemic, is a complex issue. It requires a full toolbox of professional hardware and software as well as trained, experienced technicians to do it reliably.
Through our wholly-owned subsidiary TeleprompterRental.com we have decades of Teleprompter and Interrotron experience. Our International network of 25 regional offices includes Canada, USA, Mexico and the Caribbean. Put simply we have the experience.
We supplied the Interrotron and technician to Errol Morris, theAcademy Award-winning inventor of the Interrotron, when he came to New York and we are scheduled to do so again
Major Movie Markets
Even without all the issues with Covid, it’s often either impractical or too expensive to do all the remote video production desired.
Large pharmaceutical companies need to safely interview doctors and other medical professionals who may, understandbly, be reluctant to come into the studio or allow acces to their offices. Likewise, Infommercial produceers need to secure testimonials from satisfied individuals who have used their client’s products.
On the other hand, directors and producers are, understandably, reluctant to fly to other cities. Such travel is expensive and time-consuming in the best-of-times, and during Covid dangerous as well.
There is an obvious benefit to doing all of these remote video productions safely and cost-effectively.
The American Movie Company does remote video production so well because it has decades of experience in all the component parts of such an enterprise. We are TeleprompterRental.com with 25 local offices in virtually every major movie market in the USA, Canada and Mexico.
We are a highly experienced film/video production company headed by Emmy-winning feature film producer/writer/director, Bill Milling. His projects have garnerd a total of 19 Emmys.
