TREATMENT WRITING / Planning Your Script:

Movie Screenplay Treatment Writing – A movie treatment is a detailed, three-act summary of the entire screenplay. It outlines and plots the movie in 8 sequences and 3 acts, which is the industry standard. Finally, it has a log line, which is a concise, 1 to 3 sentence description of the movie premise.With a screenplay treatment in hand, you can seek investors to potentially fund the screenplay writing.  It will also make writing the full screenplay far more manageable. Most investors will also want to read the entire screenplay. $695.

 TV Show Treatment  – A TV show treatment tends to be 5 to 8 pages long. With the exception of a reality TV show treatment, which contains summaries for the first  3 and final episodes (potential scenarios), a TV sitcom treatment contains a summary of each episode of the season, main character descriptions, and a logline: $695

Book-to-Screenplay Treatment Writing: Same as above but the cost if $795 because it will take a lot of time to thoroughly read the book.

Logline — Although writing a succinct logline that encapsulates your entire screenplay is incredibly important, many screenwriters overlook this part. The logline is the first part of the treatment and it helps the reader to frame everything that comes afterward. Writing a quality logline will require us to first read and understanding the screenplay or treatment.

We will provide at least 4 variations of your logline. You can choose one and if you have any additional input and want it further tweaked, we will revise it at least 2 times for free: $49.95

* A logline is already included in a screenplay treatment so you won’t need this service if you order a treatment.

SCREENWRITING: Original Screenwriting — (2+ rounds of FREE revisions). Whether you have just a concept and premise or a detailed outline and rough character descriptions, we can help. We have screenwriting professionals who specialize in each main genre of screenwriting.

Movie Script – $5000 for a 90 to 120-page script and $50 per page thereafter. Payable in 4 installments. 10% off for ordering 90 or more pages at a time.

Sizzle Reel

A sizzle reel for an actor can make or break getting a role. An actor’s sizzle reel includes actual examples of their work (not dramatic readings or acting out scenes).  Find examples of your work that made you look good.  Don’t put just anything/everything you’ve ever done in. Make it interesting and a real reflection of your ability.  If you don’t have anything to show, no clips at all, or you aren’t satisfied with them, we can write an excellent monologue that shows your range.  If you choose to do this, make it a static head shot with no other effects so that you are the focus.  Keep the target audience in mind at all times, and think about how best to show them how good you are.

Screenplay Rewriting/ Script Doctor 

For this service, we will read your entire screenplay closely, improve scenes and characters, and rewrite dialogue as needed. There are many levels of rewriting, so we will need further details to provide an exact price QUOTE.

Screenplay Formatting — FinalDraft, Celtx, and PDF

It is essential that your screenplay is properly formatted to accepted industry standards. Even if you have a great script, if it is improperly formatted, potential investors such as directors, producers, and financiers will instantly throw it into the garbage and delete your email.

We will format your screenplay in FinalDraft, the industry standard file type, and ensure the font, indents, spacing, headings, and every nuance of screenplay formatting is done precisely to commonly accepted and required industry standards. FinalDraft is a $250 program but you can get a read-only version for free.

We will then email you the complete, formatted screenplay in 3 separate formats — FinalDraft, Celtx, and PDF.

Just $1.5 per page

Query Letter
Once you have a completed film treatment, and ideally a completed screenplay, you can go about trying to sell your screenplay. A query letter is a necessary component to this process and it serves as an informative sales letter to potential buyers such as producers, investors, and filmmakers. It is crucial to get it right since it provides them with the first impression of you and your work. Writing the query letter will require reading and understanding the screenplay.
