Robin of Sherwood, HTV Clapper Board,1983
original production material
One of the most iconic and memorable items from any movie production is the clapperboard. For decades this has been a vital piece of equipment that enables not just sound and image to be synchronised, but to also advise the viewer of the raw footage the exact details of the upcoming shot.
This is an original, production-used clapper used for the landmark tv series, starring Michael Praed. Having referenced the date, slate and take number via my scripts, I find it relates to the First Series episode, Alan a Dale, written by Richard Carpenter & directed by Ian Sharp (Who Dares Wins)
Although the particular scene number is missing from my draft, the nearest relates to one of the forest scenes (filmed at Mells Park) immediately preceeding Alan and Mildred's wedding scene.
This was given to a member of the crew by the Camera Operator at the end of the shoot in the first year. Given that the episode & director are not named, could imply this was used by the 2nd unit team doing 'Pick-Ups.'
It has a chalk signature of the make-up artist on the show on the reverse.
