What does SUPER mean?

SUPER means that something is superimposed over the image, usually text.

For example, you may see:

SUPER: The Whitehouse. 7:14pm. Day of the Democratic Primary.

That would mean that this text is displayed over the image when we enter the scene.

This is not the only way to handle on-screen text, though. The links below from John August’s blog have information on other cases and methods.
