I was shooting a film(Super-16) project recently and had to train one of our crew members on the slate, so that's where this tip originated. When you break it down, there are lots of little procedures which are all illumnated in this tip. This tip can apply to shooting video too, especially if you shoot using a sperate audio recorder and it's good for general record keeping to help your editor.

What an awesome site!
Thanks so much fro that.

Question: I saw on the video that you put the gels close to the light. Have you ever seen any gels melt or, heavens forbid, catch fire?
