Did you know?

1. A clapperboard is a iconic device used in filmmaking to signal the next scene.

2. The sharp “clap” noise that the clapperboard makes can be identified easily on the audio track, and the shutting of the clapstick can be identified easily on the separate visual track. The two tracks can then be precisely synchronised by matching the sound and movement.

3. The clapperboard was invented by Efftee Studios Head, Frank Thring, in Australia in the 1920s.
