Advanced Prompting Systems is powered by its knowledgeable people. You can have all of the equipment in the world; without someone with experience to operate it, all you have are nuts and bolts. It takes an exceptional person to be successful in the prompting business. So, let me introduce you to our contractors:
• Turk Harley has more than 30 years experience as a production manager, writer, producer, director, and prompter. He has prompted in Spanish, Portuguese, and Serbo-Croate – none of which he speaks – as well as English and un petit peu de Français.
• Ivan Sanchez has worked on numerous productions and audio visual events. Ivan is fluent in English and Spanish and is able to prompt in Portuguese and other languages. Ivan is a musician at heart who teaches guitar on his off time.
• Robert Whitman has 15 years in advertising & PR industry IT operations; making sure things work, so that presenters have what they need to perform. He's fluent in English and Spanish. On his days off, he's a music composer, writer, visual artist & chef, and can navigate the NYC metro with eyes closed.
• Jose Sainz was APS’ first prompter and developer of many of the procedures APS uses today. Jose is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese and is also able to work in other languages. He has been working in the television industry since 1987 for various networks as producer, writer, and director.
I, (Lisa Delmonico) own and manage Advanced Prompting Systems. I have been working with the company as prompter since 1996. I originally studied to be a stenographer and started working as a transcriber for closed captioning in broadcast television. My passion for the prompting business has been a great part of some of our accomplishments. I primarily prompt in English, but have prompted in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German and by downloading a language patch and working with a translator, even Arabic.
We all take great pride in our work. Prompting is an important niche in the production business and it is not limited to film and television, but also includes live public speaking events, corporate meetings and concerts. We understand the needs of the production. We pay attention to what’s going on, staying alert to work with the crew or talent at any time; and not just during setups and formal rehearsals. We also are able to operate certain other prompting programs other than our own. From time to time we have been asked by various networks to operate their in house prompting system and have been able to. Thanks for stopping by, and we’ll see you on your next production.
