SPECIAL PROVISION: Revision Discounts

It’s important to us to do the best we possibly can for our clients which is why we’ve introduced an escalating discount for scripts we see multiple times.

  • 1st Revision: 10% discount
  • 2nd Revision: 25% discount
  • 3rd Revision: 50% discount
  • 4th 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.
