SUMMARY

  • Using a slate, or clapboard, is a critically important organizational tool for post production.
  • Without accurate camera logs, the post production team will need to spend a great deal more time organizing and managing footage.
  • Be sure to call out the shot when you use your visual marker. In many cases, a poorly marked slate can be identified by the audio, and vice versa.
