What is an EyeDirect?
An EyeDirect is a portable, durable on-camera interview tool that can be shipped anywhere in the world.
The EyeDirect is a simple, versatile, and portable Interrotron alternative. Using only mirrors, this device allows talent to stare at the face of the director and into the camera simultaneously. We have found that children and untrained talent respond better to the EyeDirect than typical interview formats. Where many directors use the Interrotron while shooting in studios, the EyeDirect is optimal for on-camera interviews on the go. We ship the EyeDirect worldwide. It requires no power, no operators, fits inside a Pelican Case, and features easy assembly. With an iPad or tablet, an EyeDirect can easily function as a teleprompter.
EyeDirect frequently asked questions:
How big is the (camera lens) hood opening?
The EyeDirect has a 140-millimeter hood opening, making it compatible with virtually all professional cine zoom lenses. You can use a lens with a larger front element if you do not need the lens to “slide into the box.
Can a single director/camera operator shoot and interview at the same time with an EyeDirect?
Yes. This unit works on either side of the camera. You can set the mirror to keep your eye next to the camera eyepiece. It takes some practice but this unit is designed to accommodate this.
Can the EyeDirect act as a Teleprompter/Autocue?
Yes, you can easily use this unit as a Teleprompter. It features a built-in mount that accommodates a full-size tablet. With the included Teleprompter software, you can use the EyeDirect as a Teleprompter/Autocue.
(Note: the software on the iPad or Android tablet is not as fully featured as that of our Standard Teleprompters.)
Will the EyeDirect Rental accommodate multiple people in the same shot?
Yes. Even a small group of people can be arranged to look directly into the camera lens. The EyeDirect has a point of interest that captures their attention.
Does the EyeDirect require electricity?
No, the EyeDirect uses a mirror system that does not require power. The unit may be used anywhere.
Can we ship the EyeDirect?
Yes, we ship the unit worldwide. (Available in New York, Miami and Los Angeles for pickup/return.)
EyeDirect rentals cost $250 per day.
