Script Supervisors are in demand!

Are you looking for an important, well-paid job in the film and television industry? Are you meticulous about detail? Do you have a talent for extreme multi-tasking? Are you calm in a crisis? Do you like being referred to as an “unsung hero?” The Script Supervision Masterclass might lead you to a perfect career.

Currently, the pool of available Script Supervisors is surprisingly small while demand is at an all-time high.
Producers are begging for qualified script supervisors and continuity applicants. Become this rare commodity yourself!

Script Supervisors (aka, Continuity Supervisors) are responsible for making sure that all aspects of the filmmaking process are performed flawlessly from script to screen. 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 film.

    I really enjoyed the course. It was delivered with great enthusiasm and gave a real insight into the demanding role of script supervision and continuity. Especially the practical session on Sunday afternoon!

  4. Shirley-Ann Dixon

    A huge thank you for the wonderfully insightful course that you facilitated over the weekend.  It was well structured, with a good balance between practical and theoretical input/activities – including all the film clip examples which helped to highlight points made. A really good course for anyone considering a career in this industry.

  5. Jemma (verified owner)

    This course was brilliant!

    I initially planned to do the course in person but ended up not being able to, and Denise and the team coordinated a change for me to be on the online version. The course was great, it was seamless to do the online version with a live video feed. Timothy was engaging, insightful and held our attention for 14 hours over 2 days! The interactive aspects worked just as well online and he answered our questions in real time.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course and feel equipped to going out there and gaining some experience.

    I would highly recommend this course to would be script supervisors as well as producers, directors and editors to help them understand the role and therefore how best to utilise script supervisors.

    Fantastic masterclass; excellent instructor, very professional. The weekend course was insightful, interesting and inspiring. The option to do the course online suited me perfectly as I live in Ireland.

  7. Melissa Larkin (verified owner)

    This course was absolutely fantastic! Even after researching script supervision myself at home beforehand, nothing compares to the amount of information that we learned from Tim himself. His experience and his passion for this job made me so excited to try my hand! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience from start to finish and I feel so ready to get on a set and use these new skills and knowledge.

  8. Kathleen Gilbert (verified owner)

    An excellent intro to the massive job of the script supervisor & continuity. The added chance to ‘practice’ noting various takes of a scene in real(ish) time was invaluable. Thanks for the inspiration!
