This white film slate or movie slate measures 9.75" x 12" and it
is a white acrylic. This is a standard style
that is used by videographers and filmmakers.
It is built using high quality 1/8” acrylic board and rugged hardwood sticks. Since it is an acrylic clapboard, you can easily backlight the clapboard when shooting at night.
We use screws to hold the hinged steel plates to the clapboard sticks. This is allows continued and rigorous use by filmmakers and videographers. It offers a writing area that is 8" x 12.
While you can use either Dry Erase or Wet Erase markers, we STRONGLY recommend using the Expo Vis-a-Vis Pen Wet Erase pens. The reason for this is, we found that some dry erase pens will stain the film slate, where the Expo Vis-a-Vis Pen Wet Erase will not. They are use with overhead projectors. It wipes off easily with a damp paper towel or damp cloth. You can order these directly from us. See the Clap Pen Below.
Be careful if you are looking around at different a film slate or movie slate. While other companies may show pictures of film slates that look like ours, the quality is not as good as ours and they can be a much smaller size.
We have sold our Pro Film Slates to videographers, TV and film production companies around the world.

While the white type of film slates will work with most Dry Erase pens, we really don't recommend them. The reason is they can
stain the film or movie slate over time. We strongly recommend using the Wet Erase Pen that
we sell. Click the link above.
