The clapperboard, or slate, is used in the Buddhist-Brahmin ceremony that marked the first day of the filming of "Fah Talai Jone" (Tears of the Black Tiger). It was adorned with the auspiciuos words, "Gold", "Diamond" and Money". It is typical for Thai film crew to hold a ceremony on the first day of shooting to bring fortune and luck to the production. This "ceremony" or "ritual" slate was not used in actual flming.
