    Anyone know how to film a computer monitor without catching all the glare? Is
    there a filter or something I need to buy?

    The trick that is used by commercial photgraphers when shooting a monitor
    (as opposed to just the image on the monitor) is to double expose. Shoot
    the image with the lights off and then the monitor itself with the lights
    on. They would make certain no light fell on the glass when the lights were
    on.

    You could lock down the camera and make two clips and then combine them in
    post.

    Or use the polarizing filter suggested by Bill

    Shoot an LCD monitor instead of a CRT.

    No flicker!

    Flicker and glare are two different things.

  5. Aye lad, but LCD panels are well and truly flat compared to glassy
    CRTs....and matte plastic to boot.
