The media arts scene is highly demanding. Grants and the top scriptwriting contests are extremely competitive, so your script needs to be close to perfection.

Your work can be improved objectively in craft, format, language, syntax, clarity, aesthetics, plot structure, narrative design, audiovisual cues, characterization, subtext, relevant connections & thematic references.

Film Writer finds the goodness in the details.

If your script is ready to go into production, the final draft should be attuned to budget, schedule, technical difficulties and foreseeable limitations.

Even if you are directing or producing your work, the shooting script needs to be as tight and clear as possible.

Film Writer can help you shape the filmmaking aspects of your script.

Film Writer offers you a tailored service with the elements your script needs for its next stage.

Elsewhere, you can get your script looked at by an anonymous, underpaid reader who will write derivative coverage full of claims about undetermined producers, tiresome formulas and hypothetical current trends.

With proper help, you can improve your script in craft, format, language, syntax, clarity, aesthetics, plot structure, narrative design, audiovisual cues, characterization, subtext, relevant connections & thematic references.

Film Writer helps you communicate and shape the core elements of the story you want to tell.


Format in scripts follows certain standards. Film Writer can verify and edit your script formatting to comply consistently with those guidelines. However, if your text isn't written as a script, you should adapt it into script form beforehand. Please check the format page to make sure your draft follows the standard script format.

Credit & Copyright

Film Writer will not seek for screenwriting credit or ownership for editing, rewriting or consulting jobs of existing scripts.

However, for writing a first draft script or a complete page-1 rewrite, proper credits and rights need to be negotiated.
