Clapper Loader

This member of the crew is responsible for a number of tasks.  For example, loading and unloading film into the camera magazine along with monitoring and replacing other forms of digital media as and when necessary such as tapes and memory cards. The clapper loader would also mark where the actors are positioned in a scene so that is they leave the set they would be able to return to the correct position. Another responsibility is that of the clapperboard, which is used to indicate which scene is being filmed, and the number of takes. The clapper loader would then update the take number. (The process of changing the media is also logged by the clapper loader.)
