The role of script supervisor takes in many different aspects of filmmaking, ranging from direction, to photography and editing. A journey which balances an in-depth understanding of the script and its needs with a constant awareness and knowledge of the overall picture on set.
It is a task which requires constant focus and collaboration with the various parts of the crew to keep what is called narrative continuity. For this reason, in English speaking countries, the position is known as the “continuity supervisor”, i.e. the figure who oversees the connection between the narrative and filming, a process which has its own precise rules, and, from time to time needs to go beyond them.
