Episode 49 - NICOLETTA MANI - Script Supervisor (1 reply)
Team Deakins has the pleasure of talking with Nicoletta Mani, script supervisor, with whom they worked on the film 1917. We get the chance to discover the wide range of this role in production from the breakdown of the script, day breakdown, script timing, editor notes, continuity and much more. We learn how the script supervisor acts as a conduit to the Editor and their relationship to the director and the other departments. We also talked about handling a shoot with multiple units and multiple cameras. We delved into continuity and when it matters and when it doesn’t. Nicoletta leads us through the different aspects to the job of script supervisor - a very informative episode!

A simple question - why are script supervisors always women and is it because they are there to apply adult supervision to a project being run by a lot of unruly boys?
