Fade in:

Hi, I am Sarah, a script supervisor based in Vancouver in the beautiful British Columbia.

As a writer, I always enjoyed working with screenplays as much as I possibly can. After graduating from film school in Germany, I worked in Québec’s video game industry; part of my job was to verify and match the story and linguistic continuity in games as well as revising and translating dialogue scripts in the target languages English and German.

Soon, I realized that the position of script supervisor was like made for me. Not only does it ask for a strong attention to detail but excellent organizational competence. Furthermore, it has sharpened my long-term interest and skills in screenwriting, directing, editing, and acting over time; four subjects that I am highly passionate about in addition to my extensive knowledge of film history.

When I started out as a script supervisor, I trained myself traditionally on the paper. Today, I prefer working digitally with the help of ScriptE on the iPad, which is by now considered a standard tool in the industry. I am experienced in the production of short films, union as well as non-union TV features and series in the 1st and 2nd unit for the North American and European markets.

Your script is in good hands with me – I am here and at your…
