Whether you’re completely new to screenwriting or a more “seasoned” writer wanting some very specific guidance on a project, the benefits of a “Foundation Edit” with B2W mean you won’t be wasting your time on rewriting drafts with “misfiring” central concepts, tropey characters or dodgy structure! B2W’s Foundation Edit will walk you through three stages:
• 1) Concept check (via log line first, then one pager).
• 2) First draft / notes, plus email support
• 3) Second read / feedback via email, plus Skype call
If you have a specific goal in mind, such as getting your screenplay through a particular agent’s, company’s, competition’s or initiative’s door WITHOUT dropping all the “usual” clangers, then this could be the B2W service for you. B2W’s Uber Edit will guide you through the following, with notes, feedback and/or support from B2W:
• 1) Concept check (via logline, then one pager)
• 2) Outline
• 3) Scene Breakdown
• 4) First draft
• 5) Second draft
• 6) Third draft
• 7) One Pager rewrites
• 8) “Sizzler” – 3-4 page treatment to send out
