Since the early days, each scene on a film set would begin with "Action!" and "Cut!", followed by a loud 'clap' created by a clapperboard.
An icon, the clapperboard's main purpose is to mark each scene's detail on the chalkboard. It also signalled the start or end of scenes. Hence, editing the final cut was easier.
Today, filmmakers have DigiSlates, a digital and more precise version of the clapperboard. It eases synchronising and tracking clips.
