Teleprompter Read: Zoë Simpson on Water Fluoridation
I hired Zoë to be the host of my online natural living video series after she beat out over 200 applicants for the role. I auditioned Zoë and 9 others in my home studio with a live camera and Teleprompter. Although Zoë was clearly the best person for the job, I still gave her guidance in reading each script, which often included "slow down" as well as giving her pauses at certain spots in each script to emphasize points. To get an idea of what it's like to read a teleprompter script, read the one below outloud, and then watch the above video to see how I had Zoë do it.

"Fluoride is a toxic industrial waste product from the phosphate fertilizer industry that’s added to most municipal water supplies in the United States. Unfortunately, fluoride kills most of our beneficial enzymes; attacks the hypothalamus gland in the brain; inhibits proper functioning of the thyroid gland; can cause weakening of the bones; and can cause dental fluorosis in children, which is an irreversible mineralization disorder of the teeth.  Sodium fluoride is also a central nervous system toxin that can diminish IQ, even in small doses.  Although we’re told that fluoride is added to our water supply to prevent cavities, numerous large-scale studies have shown no difference in tooth decay between fluoridated and non-fluoridated communities in the United States.  If you’d like to keep this poison out of your body and your children’s bodies, install a high-quality water filter in your home.

INTERVIEWEE PREP

The Interview Process
I'll ask you a series of questions, you'll answer in complete thoughts, and we'll do multiple takes until the answer "comes out right." I'll guide you as you answer, helping you to clarify and categorize your thoughts so they are delivered the way you intend the viewer to understand you. Thus, to ensure you don't get frustrated with yourself, just remember that it is normal and expected that you will do multiple takes until the answer is the way you want it.

Prepare Your Answers
It behooves you to be prepared, and that means creating a bulleted list of answers with sub topics so that you can review each set of answers prior to videotaping. Even if you "know your stuff" it's important to do this because in the moment of videotaping you may forget an important point, and there's no way to insert that point later without doing another shoot. If you are prepared with a list of bullet points you know you want delivered, we're all assured you will have the best video possible.

Bring Several Shirts
Your shirt selection is important because this will be a fairly close up shot of you and we want to make sure your shirt does not distract from what you are saying. Avoid shirts that are white, black or patterned because they don't do well on camera. For women, form fitting shirts work best because they don't create distracting wrinkle shadows. Please bring clean, ironed shirts on hangers so that once we choose the shirt, we can start videotaping. For my vegetarian interview series, interviewees brought multiple shirts for me to choose from, and below are my selections to give you ideas for your shirt selection:

Use Make-up and/or Powder
Guys: It may be a surprise for you to know that men in the film industry wear make-up to conceal blemishes, and also wear powder to prevent shine. Although usually applied by a make-up artist, nevertheless they are wearing make-up. If you have blemishes or pimples, it's a good idea to get a stick of "coverup" that matches your face color so that visually you'll look your best on camera. Picking up some powder that matches your skin tone is also a good idea. Powder is used to reduce shine and is very, very important.

Gals: Bring your make-up with you, especially your powder.
