Katharina Keil Script Supervisor Australia Taku Podcast

Episode 72 – My First Screenwriting Session with a Script Supervisor

Katharina Keil’s a script supervisor with 20+ years’ experience.

She’s read 1000+ film and TV scripts in her career, so I nervously asked her to read one of mine. We discuss everything including characters, synopses, continuity, timing, production to life on set. Everything! We also chat about using voiceovers in scripts, which can sometimes be considered “lazy writing” if not done well.

Honestly, Katharina’s insights are for you if you’re interested in writing for TV or film.  I learnt heaps and had fun recording in her home with cameos from Mufasa the cat and her washing machine – don’t ask! Find Katharina Keil’s work on IMDB at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1057476/.

*Correction from Katharina: a commercial TV hour in Australia is 42-46 minutes.
