Intro to Script Supervision

Similar to how a paramedic is responsible for maintaining a patient before arriving to the hospital, a script supervisor is responsible for maintaining the integrity and continuity of a film's script before it arrives to the post production team. From the actor's lines and movements to concise notes and coverage for the post production team, the script supervisor is an essential part of any successful film. This class will give an overview of the script supervisor role, tasks, and responsibilities including: 

  • History of the position
  • Breaking down a script
  • Continuity 
  • Lining the Script, Facing Pages, and Coverage
  • That pesky 180 degree line
  • What you need to be a script supervisor
  • How a Script Supervisor is a creative collaborator 
  • ...and more! 

Each participant will walk away with a packet of information.
