Proofread & Formatting

A great screenplay may not be rejected on the basis of a few typos or bad formatting, but it’s always best to avoid anything that can make you look unprofessional.

I go through your screenplay, line-by-line with a fine-toothed comb and magnifying glass to find and edit any grammatical/spelling typos and errors, making sure your screenplay is up to industry standard.

I also make sure your script is professionally formatted, as great programs Final Draft or Movie Magic still can’t tell you if your montage is reading properly on the page.

You can send in a screenplay up to 120 pages in length. (For scripts over 120, please contact me first letting us know your page count).

And if you want a Shorts, TV script, or Treatment proofread please contact me with their page count.

Proofread, Line Edit, Format Fixes

The service involves editing your dialogue and action description, to make sure your screenplay is clean and reads as fast as possible. Think of it like your screenplay needs to lose some weight, and once I’m done it’s a lean, mean, screenplay machine! I also fix grammatical and format errors.

Before my service:

screenplay-diet-aucoinink-before

After my service:

screenplay-diet-aucoinink

I go through your screenplay line-by-line, and edit your dialogue and description directly on the page using the original .fdx file ( Final Draft).

NOTE: this is not a rewrite of your existing work, just an edit of the dialogue and description on the page to make them as tight and readable as possible.

Press the button below to order the service.




Sticky Notes

Sticky Notes service involves making extensive scene-by-scene comments directly onto the page of your PDF screenplay. This is done using  Adobe Acrobats note feature and will give you a better insight into what is working and what is not.

Feedback is given not only on how/if individual scenes are working, but also on the concept, story, structure, characters, dialogue, and scene as a whole. I will also make comments on your writing style formatting and errors where applicable. See image below for an example:

This service differs from a Line Edit in that story, character, scene, edit suggestions are made, but with no dialogue or description edits actually done. These are ON THE PAGE notes only.

You can send in a screenplay up to 120 pages in length. (For scripts over that, please contact me first to let me know your count, though a few extra pages isn’t a big deal).

Coverage

5 pages of extensive feedback on your script and suggestions on how to improve its story, structure, characters, formatting and dialogue which get your screenplay in the best possible shape it can be. Think of me like a trainer, but for screenplays.

Coverage can be provided either with a minimum of five pages of notes or on-page sticky notes (PDF only). Read more about that here.

My script analysis gets right to the core of what’s working in your screenplay and, most importantly, how I can help you fix what’s not working. If you’re all in and ready to go, you can order by clicking the lovely button below this post.

Now the coverage part can vary depending on how deep down the rabbit hole you want to go. On average I write a minimum of 5 pages of notes. Any more than that we could work something out. Note that coverage can also be sometimes called analysis or story editing, just to not cause any confusion.
