As part of a film crew the Script Supervisor (or Continuity Person) has the responsibilities of matching action within a scene and generally maintaining continuity across scenes due to the non-linear way television productions are shot. Script supervisors are also responsible for marking up scripts for the Editor so they know what has been shot each day and also reporting to the production each day on what scenes were shot, not shot, and the duration of each shoot. It's a complex but rewarding role and will offer a terrific position to observe all aspects of the production.
'The Code' is offering a paid attachment for a Script Supervisor - which will be a fantastic opportunity for someone looking to gain experience in this position. Part of a condition of being funded through the ACT Screen Investment Fund is for a production to take on "attachments". An attachment is a paid position which gives the attached person experience and credits. This attachment program is designed to help the ACT build capacity in various positions, and is open to people of all levels of experience.

ScreenACT's low-cost public liability insurance scheme for non-commercial filmmaking in 2013/14 has experienced a massive take-up for the first half of the year. It covers $20 million public liability and limited equipment theft and loss on location. ScreenACT is heavily subsidising this insurance as we believe every filmmaker should be covered for public liability when shooting in the ACT, and many locations require it. For more details, costs and how to apply for the insurance visit our website
Please note that less than half of the original 100 policies are still available through ScreenACT this calendar year, so please be sure to secure yours now before they sell out!

An Extras Directory has also been established to help identify/organise extras for film, television and documentary productions.
