The Clapperboard: A Melbourne Invention



Delve into the history of the clapperboard and why they are still used today, as research and media excerpts are collated to provide commentary on their significance and evolution in the film industry.

The process of creating broadened my media-making skills, and I learned how ideas are to be communicated through to all parts of a team and collectively refined in a collaborative work.
