Film & TV Scripts

Rates for Film & TV script editing rates are determined on a similar basis to my manuscript editing services. Review the details of this service here.

Due to the industry standard lengths for film and television scripts (one page in script = one minute of film), my rates for script reviews are pretty straightforward:

For a simple review or assessment, I will read the script and provide a 2-3 pages analysis of its strengths and weaknesses, with no supporting comments within your script.

$1/page of script +$10 assessment fee. (Example: 90 page script = $90 + $10 for 2-3 page assessment →  $100)

If you request an assessment with editing, I will review the script and provide a 3-5 page analysis of its strengths and weaknesses. In addition, I will offer suggestions for improvement throughout the document.

$2/page of script $25 assessment fee. Example: 90 page script = $35 + $25 for 3-5 page assessment →  $205.

Transcript proofreading rates start at $40 per one hour of audio. Project with over five (5) hours of audio will start at $50 per one hour of audio over the initial 5 hours ($40 for first 5 hours of audio, $50 per one hour over initial five hours of audio).
