Get one round of basic editing. Screenplay editing entails trimming and revising scenes for clarity where needed. Long scene headings and rambling dialogue will be edited to streamline the script. Some scenes will be cut if they do not serve the plot. One round of spellcheck is included with this screenplay editing service. We accept film and TV scripts, including feature length scripts and short scripts.
Our clients include producers, repped writers, attorneys, doctors, professors, and Amazon's best-selling book authors.Depending on which file type you submit, the edited script can be emailed to you as a PDF, Celtx, Movie Magic Screenwriter, Rich Text Format, or Final Draft file. Script editing does not involve commenting on the script, changing the story premise, or formatting scenes.If your script is bogged down with excessive scene descriptions and meandering dialogue, then you should consider getting your script edited. The focus of this editing service is to improve your story's narrative drive by cutting out needless elements in the script. This is not a substitute for proofreading or polishing your script. Use this editing service if you want to tighten your story's pacing and improve the readability of your script. Changes to the script are marked in color. Asterisks are also used to signify deletions, depending on the file types submitted for editing.
If you need help formatting scenes such as flashbacks and phone chats, email your script to firstname.lastname@example.org for a price quote. We also offer script doctoring (rewriting) service on scripts that are 30 pages or more. The starting rate is $400 USD, depending on the length of the story and how much work is needed to refine the plot and characters. For exact pricing and turnaround time, please email your script. We have script doctored on projects for clients with deals at Creative Artists Agency, one of the top 3 most influential agencies in Hollywood, and major studios.
