Get a lectern large enough to hide a stagehand inside.

Haha! In this backass-ward place they would probably go for that option!

Tim,

I just went through the same thing. I just keep a guy up front whose only job was to adjust the mic stand. Worked out well. He adjusted the stand in between the talking heads as they were getting up, sitting down and shaking hands.

Good Luck,
Scott

Or a stagehand short enough! I wonder if Mr Roarke will hire out Tattoo?

Sadly, both are deceased, Montalban in 2009 and Villechaize in 1993.

This was actually my first thought but I figured since all other reasonable options had been rejected this one would have been as well.  Hence my (half) joking stagehand in a box suggestion.

Is there such a creature on the market?

Haven't found anything for lecterns...

STAND   https://www.studiospares.com/product/449700  DISCONTINUED
              http://www.proaudiosuperstore.com/Chapman-Remote-Mast.html

POSITION   https://dynamount.com/

Maybe someone can use this to make a stand...

I'm not aware of one, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I've not used it here.


I did double check the BOM... There should have been (and I do remember setting up and testing before I left site) a "Remote Mast Model KH" onsite at Strahan before I left...back in 2012.   Not sure if your request is for this venue or not.

Yeah I asked Adam about this and he remembers it. Evidently the mucky-mucks took one look at it and dismissed it as "too ugly".

I'm thinking about embedding the stand without the base inside the podium though. We'll see how far I get on that. Although they have to find this thing first! lol

Yeah that would be cool, but he won't wear one.

I'm used to guys who won't wear a earset mic ("I don't want to look like Madonna"), but refusing a lav?

That's a down-tools moment.  "I'm sorry, but you just won't be heard by anybody. That's a basic limitation of the technology."

Show them how to turn off the transmitter when they go to the bathroom, but don't mention that you've power-locked it on. Gaff tape over the display and the power LED just in case.
