Special Provisions

It’s important to us to do the best we possibly can for our clients which is why we’ve introduced a number of special provisions intended to make the feedback process even more beneficial.

Accelerated Turnaround

For clients in need of a truncated turnaround, we offer an accelerated feedback process for a small additional fee. This option is subject to availability and current workload, and offers various scales of turnaround depending on client needs. Contact us for further details.

 

Revision Discounts

For subsequent drafts of previously submitted projects, scaled discounts are available.

  • 1st Revision: 10% discount
  • 2nd Revision: 25% discount
  • 3rd Revision onward: continues at 50% discount

If you want to take advantage of the discount, you just need to make sure all changes are clearly indicated in the new draft. Using a different colour for new text is the most effective way of doing this, and is easily achieved in screenwriting software via REVISION MODE.
