We Understand How Much Screenwriting Means To You

As creatives, we also understand how easy it can be to get carried away with a story and forget about the little things, like typos. But these things matter when you’re trying to present your script and yourself as a professional.

Unfortunately, your screenwriting software is not going to tell you whether all those flashbacks, phone calls or montages are properly formatted. Or if it’s as easy as it could be to follow what’s going on.

With our Proofread/Formatting service, one of our readers will go through your script, flagging up every single grammatical and formatting error so it’s presented in its best possible light.

  • Full proofread. A page-by-page, line-by-line proofread in which we flag up any grammatical and spelling typos and errors, making sure the script’s presentation is up to industry standard. (If you’d like an in-depth edit that rewrites your script’s dialogue and description, check out our Line Edit service.)
  • Full formatting edit. All sluglines, montages, flashbacks, transitions, action lines, dialogue, etc. will be edited to provide the best formatting option, directly on the page.
  • Free follow-up email service. Feel free to email us after receiving your proofread/formatted script with one or two questions if you need clarification on certain edits.
  • Guaranteed five-star service. Our average client rating on Google+ and Facebook is five out of five stars. You can read what other writers just like yourself have been saying about our services on our Reviews page.
  • Super-fast turnaround time. We strive to return our proofread/formatted scripts to writers as fast as possible. The maximum turnaround time is up to 10 business days, but if you need it back even sooner we have a 48 Hour Rush service available.
