The Craft of the Script Supervisor
ScriptE Systems - the all-in-one Digital Script Supervision Software
ScriptE has been used on Academy Award winning films, hundreds of national commercials and on episodic tv shows for every major network. Come see why ScriptE is the top name in Digital Script Supervision. Learn ScriptE from one of it's creators: Tony Pettine (BLACK SWAN, THE WRESTLER, WES CRAVEN'S: MY SOUL TO TAKE).
ScriptE enables users to take full advantage of all aspects of digital script supervision: importing scripts directly from Final Draft, Screenwriter, MSWORD, etc., capturing and sorting images directly from the video tap, logging timecode with the touch of a button, even sending out paperless reports via the internet.
See how ScriptE links directly into the digital editorial workflow via the CLIP BIN FILE, ScriptE View (it's free digital viewer), and it's brand new XML output (created for and currently being used by editing guru Walter Murch).
