SCRIPT DOCTOR SERVICE
Screenplay Re-Writing Services for Producers, Writers & Directors
What is a script doctor?
Script doctors differ from the other types of professionals in that the others are reactive, whereas a script doctor is proactive. I will actually re-write parts – or even all – of a script. I provide feedback in the same way a script editor will, but I also suggest improvements and then actually implement these improvements.
How does the script doctoring system work?
The 1st step is to submit your script along with a $ 100 non-refundable script assessment fee.
I will read your script, assess it and then send you some thoughts on how he or she would approach the doctoring work, and how many weeks work would be required to hone the script to a market-ready level.
If my quote and fee is agreeable, I will schedule a meeting/conference call with you to discuss the re-write work in greater depth.
How much does it cost?
Personal Note: I do not slam your script into a “script program” that churns out cut-and-paste responses. I read each script individually and personally, with an eye toward its unique genre and goal of the writer.
I don’t offer a smorgasbord of price choices tailored to get the cheapest shoppers around. I provide premiere interaction tailored to your needs. Sure, we will make some variations on a case-by-case basis for projects that may require adjustments, but I offer one basic price:
Script Doctor Notes — $1500
Here is what that includes:
First, you send me a log line of your script and a paragraph pitch, much like you would to a producer. If I am interested and available, I will contact you.
After I contact you, you will send me a $100 non-refundable fee along with a PDF of your completed script. I will then read it to determine if I can help you. I do not guarantee that I will take the job. The $100 is for my professional time and consideration and is not refundable. If I do not think I can help you with your script, I will let you know and our business is completed. If I do think I can help you with your script, we will take the next step.
If I tell you I think I can help you, you will give me the “green light” by sending a half payment of $700 on PayPal, and I will write out the following notes for you, depending on need:
Notes directly on the PDF script itself (as I read it) regarding first impressions, typos, formatting errors and others. Then, I will write out as many as 10 pages of script doctoring notes regarding story, characters, plot, dialogue or anything else necessary to create what I think will make it a better script.
I let you know I’ve completed the notes, and you send me the final $700 on PayPal. Then I will send you the notes via email after receiving the $700.
The price also includes a one-hour long phone call for any other questions you may have regarding the notes.
We look forward to assisting you.
