What do I get back from you?
Do you proof-edit query letters and synopses?
If included with a full screenplay order, you may submit supplemental materials. Added fees may apply ($35/hr). For separate requests, there is a $50 minimum and you can just select the "special request" service option on the form.
Do you provide coverage?
Story notes are available as an add-on for a low fee, but it is not offered without proofreading. It's simply too difficult to read past & ignore typos, formatting issues, etc.
May I just submit a portion of my screenplay?
There is now an Assessment Form that includes an option for a sample edit. $25 will be credited to full service should you decide to continue with a complete edit.
May I send you a hardcopy by snailmail?
Maybe. As long as you want your script in a digital format, I'll be happy to scan and transcribe it into a software of your choice. The edit will be done digitally and emailed back to you along with the scan of your original pages.
If your goal is to receive red-pencil edits, we prefer not to do that for myriad reasons, but you are welcome to inquire. Cost is $35/hr if we come to an agreement on the process.
What is a “spec”?
A screenplay written on speculation. Unless you've been hired to write your script, your screenplay is a spec. This is streamlined storytelling, devoid of technical direction, and designed to entice Hollywood to make it into a movie. It's a sales tool.
Meanwhile, even a script that you plan to produce into a movie yourself should be in spec format for your crew, talent, investors, etc. Keep it streamlined and leave the technical stuff out until the project is "green-lit" for production.
