Script Supervisor

BBC

My job as a script supervisor was to check over all the scripts checking for any mistakes or improvement to be made. As well as checking over the scripts, I also had to monitor what parts of the show had been filmed and what needed to be filmed. Which includes what shots have also been filmed or needs to be filmed as well as taking not of what props have been used in the set. 

Working as a script supervisor has given me experience for being in charge of things, particularly in telling people what needs to be in the shot and telling the camera crew and cast what needs to be filmed and what part is important to film. Also, showing back a script given to me to the person and talking about the script and what was good and bad about it. This has given me a insight of what it would be like to be a manager or somebody higher up.It has also given me a chance to show of my skills when it comes to checking over the scripts and taking note of everything  being filmed and used and what needs to be used or filmed for the show, improving my observation skills.
