      “Slate the scene” means putting the slate up in front of the camera before the scene starts. The slate shows the different information important to that take, such as scene number, take number, director, DP, etc. It is also used to sync sound when the sound isn’t recorded to the same media as the visuals, such as with film and external audio mixers.
