If you watch “behind the scenes” of your favorite TV series or movies, you may have noticed someone with a clipboard or tablet working closely with the Director and Actors and always hovering in the background. Who IS that person? That’s the Script Supervisor – likely the most misunderstood position on a film set. Thought of as the “on-set Editor”, the Script Supervisor works closely with the Director, Actors, Cinematographer, and numerous other departments – more than any other “below-the-line” position.

Lisa Postma was thrown into Script Supervison when no one else in her jurisdiction did the job, and not only did she fall in love with the position - she thrived! Come learn about the position that is NOT for the faint of heart. Over the weekend, you will learn duties, skill sets, and the tips & tricks that Lisa has discovered during her years on set.

Lisa will NOT be focusing on technologies and software associated with the job, but on getting you to THINK like a Script Supervisor! Technology will change. Lisa wants you to standout with the practical knowledge you will gain from this course.

If you love film so much that you want to do everything, or, even if you’re focused on another career in film, this course is for you! WHY? A Script Supervisor’s skills and knowledge are essential for so many other careers in film – Directing, Editing, Camera, Props, Set Dec, Hair, Make-Up. Topics will include coverage, slating systems, shot documentation and description, tracking continuity, working with the Director, Actors, and other departments, and more! Come find out more about Script Supervising and broaden your overall filmmaking knowledge!

Producers who fully understand the scope of the Script Supervisor’s position can create a more effective team. Anyone beginning in the camera department will benefit from a Script Supervisor’s knowledge of axis, coverage, and slating. Cast who understand continuity will get more screen time, and other crew members who know how to collaborate with a Script Supervisor will see the advantages of such knowledge!

Even if you’re just curious about this little-known position, come and learn what Script Supervision is all about! 

 

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

You will meet Lisa personally, receive a free copy of her extensive manual, hear the tips and tricks she has discovered over the years and come away with a much broader knowledge of the filmmaking process that will benefit you in numerous other on-set roles.
