November 13, 2011 1-3pm @ 440 Studios Discussion with Kate Sanford, Editor - Boardwalk Empire
Kate will bring a new angle by talking to us from the perspective of episodic television having worked on The Wire, Treme and currently Boardwalk Empire.

June 12, 2011 1-3pm @ 440 Studios Script Book Show and Tell
Everyone has a different system to organize all the information. Whether you work with paper or with a computer, there are different ways of notation, a multitude of shorthand and abbreviations, different methods of lining and yes - even varying widths of columns....Most of us tailor our paperwork to how we best organize our brains and we go to great lengths to turn in a good book and keep our editors happy. So open your brains and bring in an editor's script book and share with each other how, and why, you do what you do - not just the forms, but how you fill them in!
April 10, 2011 1-3pm @ 440 Studios 2nd Unit & Day Playing
What does it mean to come in and work <for/with/alongside/instead of> another Script Supervisor?
We will discuss the differences in paperwork, dealing with multiple camera situations, slating for 2nd Unit, working in tandem units in episodic TV, different situations (stunt, VFX, additional photography) and protocol.
