m.o.s.

A shot, a sequence, or a film that is shot without sound, which is added later. M.O.S. stands for Mit Out Sound, and derives from an old Hollywood story about a German director asking for a shot to be filmed mit out sound, and the camera assistant complying with this request by writing M.O.S. on the slate.
