Fill out the paper slate on the computer with a big bold font and then print it out.
Print the paper slate and fill it out with a thick black marker.
Start your take with the filled out slate showing clearly for 2 seconds. (Just like a Hollywood movie!) After the slate is removed from frame pause for 2 seconds before talking. Do not hold the slate page while videoing your story.
Do multiple takes (keep in mind: start each take with the slate) and select your favorite video for submission.
