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.
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.

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.

FinalDraft is a $250 program but you can get a read-only version for free.
