  1. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    Yeah that thought crossed my mind, actually. At the end of the day, it's all subjective. Well, apart from structure and proper format... although there is always someone who might use a different approach. But what's worse is that, as far as I can tell, these people asking to write a script on...

    Nice! Thanks for the feedback :thumbsup:
  3. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    Oh yeah that's the plan for sure. I might not be a professional writer (yet!), but I am a freelance, so I am quite used to this kind of things ehehe But thanks for pointing that out!
  4. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    Great! I will look into those, thank you very much!
  5. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    ok, so considering that would be my first job of this kind, maybe I'll take that down from £900 to... £500? And £250 for each draft? I mean, I will still have to put in my time to do it, so I think lower than that wouldn't be worth it?
  6. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    Thanks indietalk for the reply. So, considering the structure kindly provided by mlesemann (and considering it's for a 30mins short), how much do you think guys I should charge, roughly, for the outline, first draft and any drafts after that? I was thinking something along the lines of: -...
  7. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    I've been asked for samples of work. Should I just send, for example, the script for a story I sold (they actually optioned it)? Or perhaps I cannot do that, since the company didn't produce it yet? Maybe I can give them the link to a short that I also directed and produced, so they can actually...
  8. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    I was refering to what she wrote: "First draft of screenplay for a fee of B. For a feature, I agree to deliver the draft in 3 weeks from when we agree on the outline."
  9. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    The first draft of a feature... in 3 weeks?? The quickest I managed so far for a first draft is around 6 months ahaha (including research, outline, etc...). I would take less if I didn't have another job, but still, 3 weeks... wow! But yes, I agree about setting up a number of draft and...
  10. misc how much should I charge for writing a short script?

    Hi guys I got someone asking how much I would charge for writing a short script (30 mins) based on his idea... 🤷‍♂️ I sold short scripts before, but this is the first time someone asks me to write one from scratch based on their idea? Does anyone have any experience with this and can give me...
  11. misc Four completed scripts. Is it time to look for representation?

    Indeed. It looks like it is much easier to find an agent than a manager. Even when you search strictly for managers online you come up with a list full of agents. Is there anything different that should be done in order to find managers?
  12. misc Four completed scripts. Is it time to look for representation?

    What would you suggest, then? Win some contests first? Get some coverage by respected professionals so that they can be used as reference? Get an intership in a company as a script reader? Or what else?
  13. misc Four completed scripts. Is it time to look for representation?

    pedramyz, I suggest you to create a new discussion with the topic you are interested in, as that is not what this thread is about. Thanks :)
  14. logline Drama logline. Some feedback appreciated.

    There are basically two reasons: - I am Italian, so I know the area well, could potentially find people there, etc... (my goal is to also direct my stories, not just selling them) - Unfortunately, this kind of mentality is not so outdated as you think. There are so many small cities in Italy...

    This is gold! Thank you very much guys, extremely appreciated! Is there a specific page here reserved for this logline game of yours, @geckopelli ?
  16. misc Four completed scripts. Is it time to look for representation?

    There must be a misunderstanding. I didn't sell 4 scripts (I wish!). I wrote them. So my question was if I can be considered "ready" for representation now that I have 4 completed scripts, to show that I can keep writing and not run out of ideas. Of course it also depends on the quality of...
  17. logline Drama logline. Some feedback appreciated.

    Thanks geckopelli for contributing to the discussion. Apart from the logline itself, do you also agree to have a different inciting incident that would help making the story more dynamic? As I am now thinking to address that point first, to then come back to the logline on a later stage.
  18. logline Drama logline. Some feedback appreciated.

    By the way. Changing the inciting incident would mean that the structure of the story would inevitably change too, I basically need to add e subplot with an inciting incident that overlaps the main plot one, OR even go as further as make a new main plot (with the "right" inciting incident), and...
