Script Supervisor Salary


Working behind the scenes before a shoot and during the principal photography phase, script supervisors help to ensure that all scenes are shot according to specifications in the script, and that the dialogue is consistent among multiple takes, among other duties. The job is not always glamorous, but it pays a comfortable living wage.

Average Salaries

  • According to the jobs website Indeed, script supervisors nationwide earned an average salary of $39,000 as of 2015 -- though the jobs site Simply Hired lists people in the profession as earning $53,000 as of January 2015. Where you live may be a big factor in how much you earn. Indeed lists script supervisors in New York -- a busy location for both films and TV -- as earning an average of $54,000 per year, while script supervisors in Los Angeles -- also a hotspot for film and TV -- as earning $43,000 per year. This is generally not an entry-level job, but one you'll work your way into after working as a production assistant or assistant production coordinator, often for far lower pay.
