I’m William Griffiths, a Script Supervisor, DIT, and BSc (Hons) Film Technology and Visual Effects first class graduate from Birmingham City University.
The course I undertook allowed me to learn about and experience filmmaking from pre-production through to post-production, with greater emphasis on the latter.
In 2016/2017, I joined a few companies as an intern where I was able to hone my skills further in a workplace environment, particularly with editing and promotional video production as a runner.
After experiencing so many aspects of the filmmaking process, particularly after working as the Post-production Supervisor and Script Supervisor on a short student film, I found that two intertwined roles suit me well: editing and script supervision.
Becoming a professional Script Supervisor is my ideal career pathway as I find the role to be an interesting case where it directly interacts with practically every other aspect of a film, particularly editing, to ensure the story can be presented in such a way that audience immersion isn’t broken. I’m particularly interested in the creative process and how all departments come together to craft a holistic vision with the ultimate goal of providing inspiration and enjoyment for the audience.
Additionally, I have worked as a Logger and a DIT on factual TV programmes such as The Big Hospital Experiment (BBC 2), Inside The Ambulance (W) and Mainline (W/T) (ITV), where the roles are comparable to Script Supervision in that a keen eye for detail is required and an understanding of the post-production process is needed in order to create useful notes and reports for the editors.
