Do you use a slate when working by yourself?
I'm planning on making a short promotion video for a week long event this summer. I will be shooting all day, every day, by myself mostly with a shoulder rig, and always with an external audio recorder. Should I slate my shots? I'm thinking about whether or not I'd need the information on the slate, not the snyc. My primary reason for using this information would be to match my audio recordings with the correct video clip for editing.
My concern is that the slate will be too awkward to carry around and use with a shoulder rig (so basically one handed), but I don't really know any other way to label each shot. What do you guys think?
Also, I'm very new to all of this, so if I'm completely missing some obvious point here, please feel free to tell me that I'm an idiot.
