Lesson 237: Check The Gate
“Check The Gate” is a filmmaking term basically meaning check that the film gate doesn’t have any obstruction because we love this take and want to make sure there wasn’t any shit on the lens when we shot that. However, these days film is rarely used so even though the term is still used, it means to make sure the data is on the card. If you shoot and there was some mess on the card, that is not a very good thing. Nope! We should check our files from time to time and good practice, back things up.
PROMPT: How often do you check the files on your hard drives?
