Write your prompts

Most people find it helpful to write prompts. Capture prompts for each scene when you set up your template - these can be printed or will be pushed to the teleprompter on the app to use during filming.

Sending for Editing

Editors will add music, lower third content, opening and closing sequences as well as transitions between scenes to combine scenes into a full feature film of your story. We do not edit any of the actual content of your interview. This could take a week or so.
