Script Doctor

May 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 164

Hiring a script doctor is a Hollywood secret known by successful screenwriters and directors. A script doctor is a writer and editor who can help the screenplay writer by fixing any flaws in the script to create a polished script that is ready to be produced. A script doctor may also be known as a screenplay editor.

A good script doctor will recognize what differentiates a common script for a stunning script, partially because they have read hundreds of scripts throughout their career. Moreover, by reading a wide variety of scripts and exceptional screenplays, the doctor or editor is able to determine what the script needs as well as what it should do without; knowing what not to include in the script is equally if not more important than knowing what to include in the script.

A professional script doctor for the movie industry can save a film from disaster. An effective screenplay doctor will have read and written several successful screenplays in order to become effective and knowledgeable about how to turn a mediocre or flawed script into an impressive and flawless script. The script doctor's focus and objective varies according to the director or screenwriter's vision and needs. In general, however, the goal is to create the best script possible. Some screenplay doctors are asked to adapt dialogue to earn a PG-13 rating. Others are asked to create credible, action-oriented scenes and increase the movie's pace.

Another task for the screenplay editor may be to simply correct grammar and vocabulary mistakes. A screenplay doctor must bring a new perspective to the writing or the scene he intends to change. The doctor needs a critical eye to realize what works and what does not work as it relates to the client's vision of the movie. The doctor may need to have a quick turnaround time, sometimes just a couple days depending on the particular editing and writing task.

The process of writing a screenplay may begin as a lone task by a single screenwriter, but the best screenplays and movies in the world are the result of collaboration among other screenwriters, screenplay doctors, researchers, and even focus groups. Whether you have already written a rough draft to your screenplay or if you have only an idea, a doctor can help by writing and editing, linking scenes, and developing characters, to create a well-structured and believable screenplay. Hire a professional script doctor today.
