Script Formatting Service with Proofreading
Proper script formatting, spelling, and punctuation are essential to your script’s success
While it’s true that no amazing screenplay will ever be circular-filed for a few typos, the more professional your screenplay looks, the higher your chances of an agent’s assistant or development executive “recommending it up the Hollywood food chain.”
And, frankly, there’s zero sense in sending your screenplay out to producers, agents, and contests if it’s full of typos which your Final Draft or other screenwriting app didn’t catch. We’ll put your script into proper screenplay format, as well as find and fix all errors — from punctuation to spelling to grammar — making it as polished as possible before you send it out to producers and agents.
Rates starting at $350. Scripts requiring more work will cost more.
