By registering in this course, you will learn the foundation of the Script Supervisor's role. This class is great for beginners and those who have tried the position on a few productions under their belt, but are looking to solidify their skill set. This class will focus on the traditional pen&paper method with digital aspects peppered in.
Topics will include:
- Understanding how to breakdown the Day/Night and Page Counts
- Dissecting the continuity of a script
- Ins and Outs of the Daily Report, Editorial Log, Progress Reports, Facing Pages, and Lining the Script
- Best Practices for organizing continuity photos, acting proactively to avoid continuity issues, and handling the set.
- Thinking like an editor to maintain continuity from take-to-take and from scene-to-scene
- Diving deeper into what continuity means -- much more than which actor's hand was holding the coffee mug.
- Common mistakes that happen and how to collaborate with a solution-focused mindset.
- Matching action, movements, and challenging hair, makeup, props and/or wardrobe scenes -- think blood on clothing or black eyes.
- That pesky 180 Degree Rule
- Basic understandings of Multiple Cameras
Because this is a foundation class, we will primarily focus on the film side of script supervising. There will be compare/contrast nuggets regarding television and commercials.
This will be training for the US methods for slating and set protocols.
