How To Become An SSGI Script Supervisor
The progression route is from trainee to Script Supervisor. The qualifications required to become a trainee, and to upgrade, are governed by the Script Supervisors' Guild of Ireland (SSGI). While there are no official educational requirements to become a Script Supervisor, a well-balanced education, common-sense and a keen interest in the art of filmmaking are an advantage. Before becoming a trainee, we recommend that some time is spent on set shadowing a Guild Script Supervisor to gain an understanding of the job.
- As a trainee, a candidate will spend a specific number of days training with experienced Guild Script Supervisors on:
- Feature films (both small and large budget)
- Television dramas (both small and large budget)
A trainee will also be required to spend time in an editing suite and to complete a specific amount of unsupervised training before qualifying to be a Guild recognised Script Supervisor.
The training we offer is thorough and is designed to give aspiring Script Supervisors the opportunity to obtain a high level of understanding of our craft.
SSGI is currently not accepting new trainees. This page will be updated when positions become available.
