Meet the Crew – Script Supervisor Juliette Musique Gevorgian

The script supervisor is an unsung hero on any production. The work she does during the shoot affects everything that comes after in post production. Which is why we’re so glad to have the intelligent and multi-talented Juliette Musique Gevorgian filling that role on Other Halves.

Why did you get into production work?

I grew up in a home filled with artists. My father is a famous painter and both him and my mother have encouraged their children to find their creative passion.

In high school I attended an amazing arts school in Idyllwild, CA called Idyllwild Arts Academy. It was a boarding school that had college prep classes in the morning and art classes in the afternoon-late evening. I actually went in as a creative writing major, but shortly found the art to be too lonely for me.

I had a few friends in film and admired the collaborative work that involves making a film. By my second semester, I became a film major and the moment I walked onto the soundstage I knew I had found my home. I learned and gained a lot of experience from constantly being on set.

What’s the first thing you worked on?

My first project was a short student film titled Moksha Youth. The story was about young love and the film took about a week to shoot. I was a producer and learned the ins and outs with finances, selecting crew members, and making sure filming was kept on schedule.

How did you get involved in Other Halves?

Earlier this year, I worked on a film with the cinematography of Other Halves, Tobias Deml. The short film was called Real Dreams; Tobias wrote and directed it.

I was his assistant director for the film and through that our personal and professional friendship grew. Tobias told me about Other Halves and it sounded like a great opportunity. I was also excited to hear it was a horror film because those are my favorite sets to work on!

You’re the scripty on this show, and you’ve also done a lot of work as an AD. Both are jobs that require a lot of rigorous organization. How do you keep yourself on top of everything?

I guess I don’t know how to live my life any other way. I have always been extremely organized. There is even organization within my messes. I keep on top of everything because I never allow anything to go unnoticed. I see an issue and need to fix it right away. And hey, no one is perfect, but when it comes to my work, especially, I try my hardest to be on top of everything, and even then I push myself more.

Now that you’ve seen the script up on its feet with the actors, how do you feel about Other Halves?

Juliete IMG_5733The script takes an original, interesting perspective on the horror theme. I, as a women, applaud the writers in creating strong female leads that are not only beautiful but smart and innovative as well. This is NOT just another horror film with hot women who make stupid decisions and wind up half naked and dead. The women in this film are a force to be reckoned with, and I can’t wait to be on set with the actors chosen for these roles.
