Are you looking to hire a screenwriter to turn your idea or story into an industry-standard screenplay? You may want creative input and assistance to develop and write a well-structured script, or perhaps you have already started a script and you have a draft that may require a rewrite or polish? My advice for anyone in any of these situations - hire a professional.
What's the difference between hiring a screenwriter vs. hiring a professional screenwriter? Simply put - industry experience. There are many wannabes out there who see the job title of "screenwriter" and think to themselves, "Hey, I'm a writer! I offer writing services, so why not offer screenwriting too?! How hard can it be?"
As a professional screenwriter, I can tell you that there's a big difference between offering a screenwriting service and actually backing up that service with proven experience and expertise.
Check out my qualifications to see why I get hired as a screenwriter:
If a screenwriter doesn't have any produced film or TV credits, doesn't have any experience in the film or TV industry, has never worked with film or TV producers, and has never sold any of their own scripts, then they are not a professional screenwriter.
Though you might still be tempted to hire a less qualified screenwriter; from my experience, it's not going to get you where you want to go. If you want to win over a producer or agent, then you need to know that you truly only have one chance to impress them - and that's after you have impressed the gate-keepers and decision-makers who read your script before they ever do! My whole career is built on first impressions and always delivering a script that presents the project in the best possible light to succeed.
For that reason, I would always recommend hiring a professional. So, if you need a screenplay to be ready for Hollywood - I'm here so you can hire who Hollywood hires! In fact, you can hire who the world hires...
I've worked in the international film and TV industry - including China, UK, Canada, Australia, UAE and France - and collaborated with people from around the world to deliver scripts that are greenlight-worthy!
I can brainstorm, develop, write, rewrite, edit, consult on your screenplay, teleplay, book adaptation, treatment, logline, synopsis, pitch, query letter... and much more. Let's get started! Contact me today.
