  • It's a slate. Clapper if I'm working with amateurs who don't know the term slate. An okay example of one-time should really have the name of the picture on it too, the studio name can go. I love using the electronic ones which sync to an audio recorder and provide a time code to help with editing as well. (I'm a theatre technician but I have experience working on films, both on set and editing, of varying sizes from small 3 person crews to some involvement in large budget 'Hollywood' stuff)

    • They use that to take the audio and the video starting from the exactly same point

    • Also tells the editor which scene, take and roll it's from so they can just glance at it instead of watch all the footage shot which could literally take weeks for some shots and scenes
