Does anyone know the official (if there is one) film alphabet used when slating a scene? Apple, eh Baker?... I know it's different than the military alpha, bravo; but a Google search yielded nothing. Or am I wrong and there is no official alphabet, just use a word that starts with the letter? Thanks.

Just use a short word that starts with the letter. Also, don't do stuff like use "photo" for p because it sounds like an F.

I once did a shoot where it was all different cheeses.

"scene 3 Camembert!"
"scene 5 Asiago!"


Probably not the most professional though :)
