Script Doctor Initial Script Assessment Service
A script doctor is a screenwriter who's hired by a film or TV production company or an independent producer to do uncredited work -- ghostwriting/rewriting to improve specific things in the script such as characterization, structure, dialogue, pacing, scene descriptions, and themes. For those who are new to screenwriting, script doctors are screenwriters who are hired to fix (ghost co-write) certain aspects in a script (screenplay) such as reshaping a character's role in the story and/or streamlining the plot. Script doctors are given the creative license to do rewrites to refine or modify the story, themes, and other elements in the script.
We evaluate all types of film/TV scripts. They include thrillers, dark comedies, Westerns, faith-based stories, war stories, dystopian sci-fi, based on true stories, and historical dramas. Our clients include novelists, directors, producers, and screenwriters represented by literary and talent agencies.
Does your script need a round of script rewriting? If you want to know how much it would cost for our script doctor to do one round of rewriting on your script, submit your script here for the initial evaluation. In order for us to determine how much it would cost to rewrite your film or TV script, we would need to schedule time to read and assess the condition of your script.
Therefore, the first step is for you to order our Script Doctor Initial Script Assessment service. The maximum page count per script must not exceed 120 pages. This script doctor assessment service will enable us to gauge how much rewriting your script needs and how long it would take us to do 1 round of rewriting on your script.
Here's what you would get from our Script Doctor Initial Script Assessment service:
1) The price to do 1 round of Script Doctoring (Rewriting) on your script.
2) The turnaround time to complete 1 round of rewrite.
3) Anywhere from 1 to 5 pages of script feedback, discussing the main weak elements in the story and any main characters that need further development. The length of the script doctor's feedback (notes) varies, depending on the condition of your script. For example, if your script has many plot issues and underdeveloped characters, then the script doctor's feedback on your script will be longer than two pages.
Note: Your script must be formatted to industry standard. Also, please be advised that after you submit your script for initial assessment, to prevent any confusion in the script submission process, we cannot accept the swapping out of scripts. So, please make sure you email the correct version of the script you want assessed. If we have not started reading the script, and you decide to cancel after placing your order, we will issue you a refund -- minus 10% of the amount you paid as there is a service fee to process the refund.
