“MovieSlate® is the the Rolls-Royce of slates” says A convenient, all-in-one digital slate, clapper board, shot log, and notepad is used for film, TV, documentaries, music videos, and interviews, this professional production tool is the easy way to log footage and take notes as you shoot— saving you valuable time later when capturing/editing footage, and creating reports. All at a mere fraction of a bulky digital clapperboard’s cost.

Tap a field to edit production info. Choose info from default/custom snippets, contacts, or saved history. Enter new info with the keyboard. Use the optimized keypad to quickly enter numeric info like: roll, scene, take, timecode. Or swipe up/down on fields to increment/decrement numbers.

Entering timecode is fast and simple with our optimized keypad. Sync to clock time, or to a song from your iTunes music library (for “Music Video” mode). With optional "PRO Features" in-app purchase: LTC/WiFi sync with: compatible cameras, recorders, generators, TCS Hubs (:pulse, :wave, :buddy master, Denecke TS-TCB slate); and with other MovieSlate apps.

To begin a shot, photograph the slate’s production info, then tap the clapper sticks. The sticks open and clap closed, creating an audible/visible marker. All slate data is logged to history. Optional credits animations briefly display each production field, full screen.

For each shot, you can: circle a take; rate sound/picture quality; write multiple shot notes; record voice notes; take picture notes. Example: when shooting interviews you can create notes to timecode-mark when a particular question was asked, or something remarkable was said. Enter notes using the microphone, camera, keyboard— or insert snippet phrases (such as “Interview”, “Question”, or “Tail Sticks”).

Get fast, searchable access to shot info, without wading through hours of footage. For each shot: all production, GPS location, and timecode data is stored to the app’s Shot Log History, where you can view, edit, or rate shots. History/Notes can be exported/emailed as: HTML, XML, CSV, and TAB formats. Supports multiple projects.

Customize MovieSlate’s behavior and appearance to suit your workflow and tastes. Choose layouts, behaviors, sounds, and themes (clapper/hinge designs, backgrounds, fonts, and colors)— even display your production logo on the slate and in reports.

With MovieSlate on your iOS device: lost clapper boards will be a thing of the past. Your shot history is always ready to view, review, edit, or send.
