Setup for walking with teleprompter

Hi All,

I need to shoot a host walking and speaking to camera while reading a teleprompter (but not looking like they are). I think that means I need to get some distance between cam and talent which also helps keep perspective of face a bit more flat. Will put a lav on talent with small recorder attached on their belt, so sound is all separate and self contained. And it would also be good if I don't look like I'm filming something big eg wearing any form of harness or big arm. And cant use a dolly.

So what gear are people using if they need to do this?

I was thinking I might use

- Lighter autofocus vid cam with face tracking like Sony a6500

- ipad teleprompter and beam splitter glass

- Manfrotto fig rig 595b because I guess this will be a bit heavy for an active or passive gimbal.

What do you guys think I should be using? Would above work and any suggestions for other types of kit or specific models?

thanks in advance.

Sony a6500
