English term or phrase: to shoot the marker
Tap on any of the rooms in the shot list when you are going to begin shooting that room.

neutral  Tony M: Unlikely, really, B, as these are generally referring to stills shoots — and in all my years in the film & TV industry, I've never heard the 'slate' referred to as 'marker'; but it may be a kind of ID to say which room the photos were taken in.

  -> I think it is an ID marker for the room, so see my note (just added).

neutral  Daryo: I don't think there are shooting movies - more like a series of still images; it must be s.t. similar to this but I have the feeling that rereading the whole ST would be more useful than expecting help from s.o. with no context available
