The New York Script Supervisors Network, is a support network for one of the most challenging and autonomous roles in the filmmaking process.
NYSSN is comprised of members of all levels of experience, both union affiliated and non-union, who work in various types of production.
Our principal goals consist of, but are not limited to the following:
Provide an opportunity to meet and network with other Script Supervisors.
Create opportunities to educate ourselves, share information and improve work skills.
Increase awareness within the film community of the role of the Script Supervisor and promote a greater understanding and respect for the craft.
Provide a supportive environment as well as further the sense of professional community among Script Supervisors.
NYSSN was established in September 1996 by Peggy Sutton. It is a not-for-profit organization and is strictly for Script Supervisors.
“Continuity touches every aspect of filmmaking: story, characters, themes, emotions, cultures, languages... everything. Without the care to the logistical connections and flows that a good script supervisor brings, movies would be meaningless.”
— Ang Lee
NYSSN is for Script Supervisors living and working in and around New York City, primarily in the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT). Our network revolves around meetings which we expect members to be able to attend in person.
