Male 1: In a multi-camera shoot to have a fighting chance later on in post production, you need to make sure that you sync up your cameras, and this can be very easy to do, and the way I usually do it is with a slate, like this guy. This particular slate has a clapper at the top, and you'll notice if I lift it up, I actually have timecode there, in this case this is time, daytime code, and when I clap the slate. There I have a sync point. I don't use a traditional slate. I can also a digital slate like this guy. Here this is a product called DSLR slate, and I can put information like scene, take number, who the camera operator was and so on and so forth.
And on a traditional slate, I can do that, but I actually have to use something a litlte old-fashioned. A dry erase marker. So, these go missing often, so that's kind of why I like the digital slate as well. And in a situation where you don't have either a slate, a traditional slate, or a digital slate, these two things right here, work rather fine, all you need to do is call out the scene information and then say mark. Just like that. And that can act as a sync point, as well.
