Script Formatting Service with Proofreading




Screenplay a mess? Not sure if your spellcheck caught everything? We’ll make it look pro.

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 proofread your script, format it properly, and fix all errors of punctuation, formatting, spelling, and usage. We go over your script line-by-line, word-by-word, to make sure it’s free of errors before you send it out.

Your script must be in an editable file format, such as FadeIn Pro, Screenwriter, Final Draft, Microsoft Word, or any other editable file. We’re not able to type your script in from scratch, and we can’t format/proofread PDF files. If your script is over 120 pages, or if English is not your primary language, email us for a quote.

Turnaround time is 7 business days. 

What this service includes:
Fixes to punctuation, spelling, and usage
