en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – April 2014
A guide to the craft of script supervising, this book includes both practical instruction and examples that explain the skills needed to work as a professional script supervisor.
Mary Cybulski walks you through the process of training as and working as a professional script supervisor. She covers the basic skills of how to breakdown a script, taking notes on set, matching, cheating, screen direction, and what the director, actors, and editor expect from a script supervisor. She also explains many of the more subtle, but just as important, skills- how to get a job, how to tell what is important in a script and on set, how to get along with the cast and crew, and how not to get overwhelmed when there is too much information to process.
The companion website features the various forms, templates, logs, and checklists used by script supervisors.
The basic job as script supervisor is to understand and record the most essential elements of the film. In the past, script supervisors were often looked upon as secretaries. Things have changed and now they are usually thought of more like executive assistants, true filmmakers, a director’s backup and secret weapon. This change has come at the same time and in connection with a new film language. Post-modernist filmmaking is changing the grammar of the film and, of course, the rules script supervisors used to champion. While it is no longer forbidden to cross the 180 line, the job is now to know what it means to cross the 180 line. Or to mix frame sizes, jump time, or any of the poetic leaps that many contemporary filmmakers are now taking.
Beyond Continuity is the first to address and explore the dynamics of this new filmmaking.

Notă biografică

Mary Cybulski is a script supervisor with more than twenty years experience. She has learned and invented techniques that have made her one of the most skilled and valued script supervisors in the US. She is the first call for many of our most inventive directors: John Sayles, David Mamet, Jodie Foster, M. Night Shyamalan, Ang Lee, Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry, and Tony Gilroy. During these years she has developed her craft by both learning and inventing professional techniques. Cybulski has been a guest lecturer at NYU grad film, NYU grad acting, Columbia film school, Trinity College department of theatre, One on One acting workshop in NYC, and has mentored and trained dozens of hopeful script supervisors. She has made award winning short films, written and sold scripts for feature films, directed a feature film, worked in the camera department, the sound department, the production office, designed and shot visual effects. This additional film work has added insight to her craft and given her valuable skills, the ability to understand what a director needs and how to coordinate her work with the rest of the filmmaking team.
