The Script Supervisor’s role is important for filmmakers to learn but who exactly is a Script Supervisor and what do they do? The Script Supervisor ensures all aspects of the filmmaking process are performed flawlessly from script to screen. Sometimes known as “Scripty”, they are a key crew member who makes sure of continuity, keeping track of takes, timings and shooting set-ups essential for the editor, as well as checking correct dialogue, actions, costume, make-up, and props. As a “department of one” the Script Supervisor keeps the production on track and records all the infinitesimal details of the process to create a bible the editor uses to assemble the final work.
