|Q: What is a Movie Countdown Leader?
A: The film leader is known by many names, with the 2 most common head leader versions: Academy Leader, and SMPTE Leader.
Academy Leader counts down from 11 to 3 with numbers marked every foot. Nine and Six are spelled out and the beep is heard at 3.
SMPTE Leader replaced Academy Leader and counts down from 8 to 2 with numbers measured in seconds and not feet. It features the rotating clock arm animation. PICTURE START appears before the countdown and the beep is heard at 2.
The leader is used both for the lab to line up sound via the beep with the picture, and for the projectionist to know when to turn on the lamp.
