Filmsticks designs and manufactures the highest quality Clapperboard Sticks, Slates and accessories for the Film Industry. Our line of lightweight, Resin Sticks have been dubbed a game changer by professional Camera Assistants. Filmsticks Resin Sticks were created by established Clapper Loaders and have been developed over years of testing on the world’s most influential film sets. They have rapidly become the professional Camera Assistant’s first choice and will likely soon replace outdated wooden versions.
The benefits of resin over wood are numerous. Filmsticks are lighter and more streamlined than wooden versions. They are significantly more hard wearing. They have no reaction to water which can warp the shape and dull the sound of wooden sticks.
Most importantly, Filmsticks deliver a clear, consistent clap for audio sync every time. Every Camera Assistant has experienced that frustrating moment when wooden sticks fail to perform during a ‘soft sticks’ clap. Having to call ‘second sticks’ before clapping again. This might seem insignificant to those not in the know but us Camera Assistants know how ‘second sticks’ affects the concentration of the actor, director and the atmosphere in that moment on set. All the things we work so hard to avoid and yet we’re let down so many times by our most used tool. Well, Filmsticks will always create a sound even during the softest clap.
In addition to our revolutionary Resin Sticks, Filmsticks have gone a step further in designing a professional grade Slate with a tailor made protective sleeve in order to supply a budding Camera Assistant, Filmmaker or Camera Department Professional with everything they need to make up the most important tool in their kitbag.
