Experiencing the role of script supervisor – aka continuity, builds your personality in being more communicative with other roles on set. This member of crew ensures that the film is shot into making visual sense and continuous.
Being part of the film ‘Maneland’ directed by Peter Sant, was an experience that taught me skills to work. The role has the skill of observation with detail, stamina to remain alert and focused on long filming days, take precise notes quickly, being able to respond quickly to circumstances. Script Supervisor works closely with costume, props, make up, hair, sound, lighting and camera and the actions of the actor during the scene.
I had to prepare detailed log sheets & daily continuity reports, take pictures for continuous scenes. Re-type any script changes and be in charge of slate numbers. This helps the editor in post-production to find any footage and sound to be found easily.
This role encourages me to build this career role whilst working on film sets with other directors.
