Our Founder’s Story
Greg Stephenson remembers:
The original idea wasn’t mine. I had been working at Spindletop Productions, learning the ropes of video production: grip, electrics, audio, and video recording, prompting… and a colleague, Pat Blackard, mentioned in passing that the area needed a dedicated teleprompter service. His idea clicked with me. I knew how to prompt, and there was no competition.
About the same time, I had another lucky break: my great-aunt Nellie decided to hand out her inheritances early, an equal amount for each niece and nephew. Years later I asked her why, and she said, “I just wanted to see what everyone would do with it.” What I did with it was buy a prompter package, print business cards and send out a mailer. Aunt Nellie lived another 20 years and her photo hangs over my desk.
I got a lot of support from my business friends. Mike Hardin kept me busy at his production company, which gave me a basic income. Mark Beasley (now of MPS Studios) was just starting his own business, renting film cameras. He offered me a corner where I could stack my cases – which was a godsend, because I was living in a tiny second-floor apartment.
As I look back on it, I’ve been fortunate. I couldn’t have done it alone. A lot of terrific people have played a role in Dallas Prompter, from contractors to clients to anyone who ever gave me a referral. Thanks to all of you.
