About Me

Mariana Hellmund's trajectory as a Script Supervisor ranges from classic indie films like “Maria Full of Grace” (Catalina Sandino Moreno), “The Savages” (Laura Linney, Phillip Seymour Hoffman) and more recently “The Big Sick” (Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter). She has also worked on studio productions like “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2” (America Ferrera, Blake Lively) and “The Ex" (Jason Bateman, Amanda Peet, Zach Braff) and the pilot for NBC’s “30 Rock” (Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin).

The more recent challenge of tracking stories across episodic seasons of “TV” has been her main focus recently with HBO’s “Crashing” seasons 2 + 3, HBO’s “Mrs Fletcher”, HBO’s “Betty”, as well as Netflix’s “Soundtrack” (pilot), and SHOWTIME’S “Billions” (Ep 501).

Mariana has been a member of New York’s LAByrinth Theater Company since 2000. Her first feature film as writer/director/producer “The Aspern Papers” was a contemporary adaptation of Henry James’ classic novella (starring Brooke Smith).

  • Script Supervising: Paper vs Digital

    There are so many ways to be a Script Supervisor - you can work digitally, on paper, or create a hybrid system. The one thing you need to know is that they are all valid - no matter what the budget is. No digital format can replace the skills needed to a great "Scripty" - the basics of the job are the same. I am an "old school" script supervisor working mainly on "pencil and paper", but I also use my laptop and an iPad with several Apps for various tasks. I can give a good overview of Script-E, Skerratt, as well as hybrid options for iPads with apps - if you are trying to decide what is best for you. Let's explore!
