matching action on film


           Matching action on film.

           Script-supervisors keeps notes in the shooting script for the film editor and the director.

           The notes include the lens being used for each shot, the length of the take...

          When you act for the camera, keep it simple.

          When your hands aren't doing anything, keep them under the table. Not literally...

          The rule is, if you can see the lens, it can see you.

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
