One of the last things an independent film maker would consider is spending any money on proof reading the script. However, a tight script devoid of errors and with all major plot holes filled can save much important filming time and far less headaches in post.

If you are considering having your script looked at then Francesca's rates are pitched to meet the low budget end of the scale. Her skills, however, are very much at the professional end of the spectrum.

Fortunately I am now working with sensible budgets but I still use her to evaluate all my scripts. Not just because I am a cheapskate, but because she is very good at what she does”

I would like to thank Francesca personally for doing a fantastic job of proof reading my script. Absolutely professional and dedicated.

Thanks for the wonderful prompt service.

“Francesca did an incredibly thorough job when proofreading the screenplay for my short film, 'After Dark'. Not only was she able to pick up on everysingle grammatical or spelling errors within the screenplay, but she also offered welcome suggestions on the structure and pacing of certain strings of dialogue. As well as the rewording of action lines and descriptions to save valuable page space! 

Not only that, but Francesca took the time to really immerse herself in the story I was telling, and was able to offer her overall thoughts on the story, and quality of the screenplay, and all this for an incredibly reasonable price! 

I couldn't recommend her services more!”

“As someone who’s just finding his footing in screenwriting, proofreading wasn’t really something I had considered before. Francesca pointed out all grammatical errors and plot inconsistencies in my script that would have otherwise gone unnoticed, and now I feel my script reads so much better. Her analysis is thorough, professional, honest, and constructive.

I’ll definitely be keeping Francesca’s services in mind for any future scripts I write. Highly recommended!”
