I don't know how many of you have seen all the cool stuff over at yourprops.com but after seeing the clapperboard from 'ALIEN' I had to attempt to make one for my ultra cool, AES Display. (Courtesy of Stephen/Danita and Richie) Wink


http://www.yourprops.com/Alien-production-clapperboard-original---screen-used-production-material-Alien--1979--prop-37467.html


It took me about a month to find an approximate source clapperboard in mint condition off of eBay.co.uk that I scored for about 40 pounds. There are some variations like the 'PROD' sizing and some other details but thats okay.

I printed off a bunch of copies of differing enlargements - found some that were close and used them as templates for the lettering. A little weathering and some tea stain on copy paper and instant aged masking tape.

Anyway, hope you guys like.
