F45:016 – Aleshia Mueller, Script Supervisor

“I’m from Backus, I can do anything!”

This episode we get schooled in the art of script supervision and continuity, and in having a super can-do attitude, with Aleshia Mueller (ReelNomad). She’s been very busy the last several years working both in town and out (Atlanta and others). Find out what kind of person makes a great script supervisor and what tools she uses to do her job and how volcanoes factor into it all.

This episode we sit down and chat with producer-director Norah Shapiro about her new documentary, Miss Tibet: Beauty in Exile, which just had its local premiere at MSPIFF 2015 (after the world premiere at DOCNYC!). Does starting off as a public defender make for a good filmmaker? And what does local moonshine have to do with any of this?
