Camera Hop and Tentacle Sync

 In Japan, digital slates are NOT used and the ADs run the slate. I was the associate producer for a Japanese feature film directed by  Bernard Rose  ( Candyman ,  Immortal Beloved ) and DPed by  Takuro Ishizaka . We needed a slate as post pro will be happening in LA, so I bought one and used it. Anyway, that's how I got my slate.
