The Ins and Outs of Being a Script Supervisor

There are many ways to work in the industry and learn what makes a good script besides being a screenwriter.

As a budding writer, Jessica Hobbs began script supervising in 2013 with the skills she learned working as a stage manager for live theater. Along with a sharp attention to detail and a love of reading scripts, aspiring Script Supervisors need excellent organizational and communication skills to manage coverage, consistency, and continuity.

In this session, Jessica will cover:

  • What to look for while doing a script breakdown
  • The script supervisor's role on set
  • How to support the project's director
  • How to support the project's editor
  • Communicating with the crew
  • How to find jobs and network as a department of one
