What Does a Script Supervisor Do?

This course is for anyone who wants to learn more about the craft of script supervising. Students will learn what it is like to work as a script supervisor from pre-production through post-production. They will learn the basics of film theory as it pertains to the position.

Practical exercises will include breaking down a short film script as necessary during pre-production. Students will also participate in an ongoing exercise in which they look for continuity errors from each of our virtual classroom sessions.
