Kodak just posted an interesting picture from the set of "September 11 1683"

(hope this link works for everyone)

 

It's a very old school looking wooden slate with little (apparently) ring binder type drop-down wooden letters.

 

Does anybody know why one would use such a slate? Is this available somewhere or was it custom made for that film?

 

I have to admit it adds a very nice touch to the set of a historical film ..

 

Greetings,

Marc

Looks homemade to me, perhaps the AC just built it to suit his own taste. I do like the handle. The names on the slate are Italian--if it's a European production/crew, maybe it's a common preference.

 

Not sure how you'd read the scene number though--I almost thought it was a binary digit.
