For this week's Reel Rebel video production, Stephen Schweickart gives an overview of a great mobile app for Apple iOS devices called Movie Slate.  Essentially, Movie Slate acts as a digital slate and video production organization tool for videographers and filmmakers. It features a digital clapper board and functionality to take notes and logging video footage as you shoot.

Movie Slate App Features: Digital Slate, Clapperboard & Shot Log

With the Movie Slate app, you can label your video shots, takes, directors, cinematographers, etc... and use it as a digital clapper board.  Additionally, it also comes with a set of focus and color cards to help you check your camera's calibration.  You can also take notes during a shot or after you complete it and even do it based on the timecode.  It even has the ability to log your camera settings on a per shot basis which can help make it easier to replicate your favorite video shots.

Overall, we think this is a great app for video production if you like staying organized while you're shooting and during post-production.

Question:  What other mobile apps have you used that you find helpful for video production?

    Hmmn, at $24.99 it may be the "Rolls Royce" of slates as they say - seems like it's rated well, and definitely full featured though...
