The Back Story

When filming a movie, pictures and sound are recorded independent of each other.  The movie clapperboard is a filmmaking devise that helps synchronize the pictures and sound, as well as to mark specific scenes and takes.  During the early days of filmmaking, one person would hold the slate for the camera while another would clap sticks together for synchronization.  Over time, the two components were combined into a single device, making the job easier for one person to handle.

A woman purchased this clapperboard ornament for her theatrical daughter last year, and came back to buy another theater ornament for her this year. Her daughter is currently going through the process of selecting schools with Musical Theater majors.
