It is the most recognizable and widely known symbol of movie production. Although it is yet a very useful accessory, which will make your further video editing process much easier and faster. And here are two main reasons why.
First, if you film several scenes during a day or a session, you probably will have quite a number of video materials that operators call footage. So while editing the materials to make the final video product you will use the best of your shots in the final video. And how do you think you find your best take? Right – with the reference mark on the clapper. Of course if either you or your assistant take notes during shooting.
The second reason is if you capture the audio with another recording device, like an external microphone connected to another phone for instance. And later to synchronize perfectly video and audio for merging and editing – you need a clear mark to align the sound and video tracks. This mark is the clap – the sound of shutting clapper. It is very clear at audio chart as a high peak so all you need to align it with the video of the clapper – and you are done.
Finally the clapper is like a cherry in a highball glass – it makes things complete and you see the cocktail in it but not just several mixed drinks. And the same way clapper helps everyone who involved in the production to concentrate and get the best of their potentials. This small accessory matters so much, because making a movie always has some magic regardless how big is the current camera. And often the magic is hidden in such details.
