Affordable Proofreading & Critique Service for Screenplays & Query Letters

The goal of writers of screenplays and scripts is to have their work made into a movie. To get to that stage writers must first have their work prepared according to industry standards. If a script is not in industry standard format it will not be considered by agents and producers. Everyday movie agents and producers are flooded with query letters and scripts. Instead of reading them all they only read the ones that are written in accordance to the standard formats for query letters and scripts.

Before contacting an agent or producer writers should have their query letters and scripts proofread and critiqued. A professional critique and proofreading service can be costly. Following are some suggested services that I found to provide good service for a reasonable cost.


SCRIPTS: AFFORDABLE PROOFREADING & CRITIQUE SERVICE
This service offers critiques and proofreading for film scripts and query letters for film scripts.


For Screenplays:
Scripts are read to make sure they are correctly formatted to the movie industry standards. It is also proofread for grammar, spelling, typos, etc…


The critiques are based on (1) script length, (2) character development (3)plot development


For Query Letters:
Because there is an industry standard format for screenplay query letters, the writer is simply sent a format outline for a standard query letter showing what it should contain. A list of questions about the script is also sent. The answers to the questions are used the form the actual letter. This makes writing the query letter very simple.


The service fees are:


Proofreading $10.00
Critique $10.00
Query letter (critique & proofreading) $5.00


Because of the high volume of work, service is limited to the scripts written for family, children, fantasy, and drama films. The scripts must be 90 to 115 pages long.


There are no phone discussions and consultations with the writers, which is why the fee is so low. Instead all communication is done entirely by email. Writers are sent a copy of their scripts and/or letters high lighting correction that need to be made and a copy showing the corrections.
