Clapper Loader F*ckin Geneeeius!

This is a little bit inside baseball, but the 2nd Camera Assistant on a movie crew loads raw film into the camera mags and operates the clapperboard. Geraldine Brezca (according to imdb) worked as 2nd AC Clapper Operator on Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, and she called out the slate by assigning fun words to the letters that follow the shot number and delivering them with unbridled enthusiasm.

This made me happy on so many levels...mostly because it brought flooding back how great it can be working on a film set.




And because it made me smile.
