Insignificance Clapperboard

A clapperboard used in the production of Nicolas Roeg’s comedy-drama Insignificance.

A clapperboard is one of the most iconic and memorable aspects of the movie making industry. 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. The simple monochromatic device has become a symbolic image synonymous with films, and is still used to this day.

Well used on the production of the film, this large-sized clapperboard has the title “Insignificance” painted along the top with the name of director Nicholas Roeg and director of photography Peter Hannan painted below. Spaces in the boxes below are present to write in chalk the slate and take, with the numbers “482” and “8” still present. Writing running across the bottom indicates the date it was last used, marked as 9th August 1984. The clapper stick remains in a loose condition, allowing for a sharp snap when closed.

Displaying plenty of wear from its time on use, the clapperboard has a wire fitted on the rear for hanging on a wall and remains in overall very good production-used condition.

Item size – 11.61″ x 14.96″ x 0.79″ (29.5cm x 38.0cm x 2.0cm)
