A Valentine to all Script Supervisors


A couple of moths ago I heard an utterly beguiling director say this on set, “The moment of creating is over, NOW is the moment of matching.” Be still my beating heart – and watch those wineglasses, my darlings.


  1. I’m not sure what that director meant by that comment. Sadly, it sounds like the film industry’s mantra in recent years. Don’t create, just “match”. Keep remaking movies that have already been made, and adding sequels to those that made a lot of money. Seems like the only people willing to take on new story ideas are the cable TV networks (with great stories like Game of Thrones, Outlander, Boardwalk Empire, etc.).
