What Is A Script Supervisor?

This is one of the most important positions on a set (aka know as the "script soop") The script supervisor usually stands right next to the director, and it is they’re job to make sure continuity is maintained while shooting. They will mark directly on the script what angels were shot for which scenes, and how many takes were done of each. It is their job to make sure that for every take, the actors’ lines are consistent with other takes. In general, they need to make sure that a movie that is shot out of sequence will piece together and make sense for the editor.
