Film/TV Script Formatting Service @ $2.09 Per Page
We provide professional film and TV script formatting services for serious screenwriters and filmmakers. Get one round of script formatting service with us. We have formatted feature film and TV series scripts for clients who have gotten their scripts picked up by award-winning directors and producers -- as well as investors. Some of the producers' work include TV series and feature films for Lionsgate, Netflix, Universal Pictures, Disney, Sony Pictures, Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and many more.
Our script formatting service entails our script formatter reading your script page by page to check for formatting errors you may have overlooked during your writing process. We will reformat (revise) flashbacks and phone conversation scenes if they are not written in proper industry script format. You will be in good hands with us. We have well over 7 years of industry experience formatting film and TV scripts for new screenwriters, including novel book writers who are crossing over to screenwriting.
Est. Turnaround Time: 7 business days for a script that is 120 pages or less.
An additional charge may apply if we notice that the script has a heavy amount of formatting errors, which requires more time and work to tidy it up. In that scenario, we will let you know the additional cost. Once you agree to the additional cost, we will email you a personalized payment link to submit payment. Scripts that have excessive formatting errors or exceed 120 pages may take more than 7 business days.
This script formatting service is only for scripts that have been typed using a professional screenwriting software -- not scripts typed using Microsoft Word. If you typed your script using MS Word, email your script as an MS Word or Rich Text File (RTF) to email@example.com to get a price quote on how much it would cost for us to reformat your entire script. Among other things, scripts that are typed using MS Word or Google Docs don't paginate properly, so they would need script formatting service.
If your script is not formatted to industry standard, and you pitch it to a producer, it will make a statement about who you are as a screenwriter. Producers will think that you are inexperienced if they see that your script is not properly formatted.
The condition of your script is a reflection of your talent and standards. Many new screenwriters often ask us how to get a literary agent, but only some are willing to put in the effort to make their scripts look professional and presentable. Screenwriting programs do not have artificial intelligence built in to read and understand the scenes in your script. For example, if you formatted your flashback scenes incorrectly, or in a confusing manner, your screenwriting software will not know to flag your formatting error. So, consider using our script formatting service. Our script formatter will go line by line and check your script for formatting errors and correct them where the script formatter sees fit.
We will also check the font style, font size, line spacings between elements, and format words in capital letters where needed. Similarly, if you formatted a certain word in your script in lowercase when it should be in uppercase, we will correct that formatting error for you.
Correcting formatting errors is also known as script reformatting. For example, if your scene heading has incorrect left and right margins -- or it is not written in proper format/sequence, it means you did not format (write) your scene headings according to the industry format of how a film or TV scene heading should be in a script. When you incorrectly format a scene heading, it can mean many things. It can mean that you wrote it in the wrong order, and/or you put wrong things in the scene heading.
With this script formatting service, you are paying to have your script carefully examined page by page. And if there are formatting errors, we will correct them. We also check for inconsistencies in the way you format your scene headings for the same locations in the script. For instance, if in one scene heading you indicate that a certain character is living in an apartment, but later in the story, for no apparent reason, you indicate that the same character is living in a house, then we will correct the scene heading accordingly. This form of script formatting is called formatting for continuity.
Our script formatter will use discretion when doing the formatting check to determine what can be corrected, and what is outside the scope of script formatting service. For instance, the script formatter will NOT be proofreading the script or correcting grammar errors because proofreading a script is not the same as formatting a script. After you get the formatted script back from us, you will need to proofread it.
Proofreading Service is an Additional Cost
If you need proofreading service added on, let us know so we can give you a price quote and turnaround time for proofreading service. We can easily bundle both services (formatting + proofreading) into one e-invoice and email you a personalized payment link to make your purchase.
More About Our Script Formatting Service
Script formatting service also involves us revising your scene heading, where we deem necessary, to make sure it matches with the circumstance in the scene. As an example, if you indicate it's a day scene in your scene heading but then say it's nighttime in your scene description, then we will correct the "time of day" discrepancy for that scene.
Our script formatter will check each scene heading, scene description, dialogue section, parenthetical, use of V.O. vs. O.S., character name, use of text over a scene, use of subtitling, margins, and line spacings between elements such as scene headings and dialogue.
This script formatting service does NOT include commenting on the script (script feedback service), proofreading for typos, rewriting sentences that the screenwriter wrote in novelistic style, rewriting to condense the story, or fixing grammar errors.
