Long ago when my ancestors used to walk the land, I had a hobby recording studio in a walk-in closet in my apartment. As the hobby grew, one day I noticed that my little studio was now better equipped than any of the radio stations that I had worked at, and in a rather synchronous bit of timing, the job that I had was exposing me to corporate amerika for the first time.
I decided to go "legit", and took the hobby studio into the professional realm.

Looking for a name for the business, there was a massive influx of marmota in the media and the surrounding area, and it kind of planted itself in my consciousness.

Originally it was Mystic Marmot. Barb ended up convincing me that Magic Marmot was a better name, and it stuck.

Depends on the circumstances. Probably snogging, though more recently, blogging.

When shooting films, what's the purpose of snapping the clapboard before a scene? Isn't it enough to just display it on camera?

If the camera has integral sound recording, then you don't need the clap. However, most film productions record the sound on a separate medium (mag tape, DAT, or hard drive) and somebody has to assemble these together. The clap is used to sync the frames.

And it makes the clapper feel like they have something to do.

what is...
the one part of film making with which you would prefer to never ever have anything to do?

Re: what is...
The business end. Schmoozing, finding investors, dealing with the logistics of finding the right people to empty the honeywagon, accounting, all of the mundane details that need to be done. My strengths and interest are entirely in the creative and technical aspects.
