An interesting read by DOP John Brawley about how he likes his slates to appear and I agree with a lot of it. People/2nd AC’s forget that slating/boarding is pretty much the only time you’re ever seen by a lot of crew for a few seconds. Surely you want to do it properly and efficiently?

I get frustrated by boards/slates that I have to guide a 2nd AC to get in the frame but also sloppy childlike handwriting isn’t good enough in my books.
