Screenplay Formatting – Updated Service

I have changed the service of Screenplay Writing to Screenplay Formatting. Here are the details as seen on the official web page.

Translating Story into Script

Formatting Screenplays Professionally

A film begins with an idea. When comes time to put that idea on paper, it’s important to know the proper format. Screenplay writing can be simple enough, but it’s formatting a script that sometimes can bring us to pause. Only because of all the details on formatting. Whether you’re a professional writer or a first time writer, my video on ”Script Formatting Tips (How to write a screenplay with Microsoft Word” will provide you with some useful tips. If you have a special software like Final Draft, Celtx, or Trelby, that does the formatting for you, then you’re probably all set.

However, if you’re in need of an extra hand when it comes to formatting your script, regardless of your reasons, Binky Productions can help you there. While we can work directly in Word, nowadays we prefer to use software like Trelby or Celtx to format script in a neat and concise way, with all the industry standards and conventions, to give your script the professional look it needs.

We will be more than happy to provide you with a quote for your project. Simply send your query to: info@binkyproductions.com.

Based in the larger Montreal area (Quebec, Canada), Binky Productions also offers this service overseas, using Google Drive to send files.

 

 


Script Formatting Tips

This week on Binky’s Blog, Binky shows us how to write a proper script using nothing more than Microsoft Word. A video accompanies this blog.

“You don’t need an expensive or special software to write a proper script with the proper font and formatting. Of course, some of these software format the script for you, so you save time, but you can easily format it while proof reading it and you don’t spend that much more time than necessary on formatting it. It also saves you money as it can easily be done with Microsoft Word.

Font. The most commonly used font is COURRIER. Not Courrier New, there’s a difference. I used to gets mixed up with the two at first. Size 12. A good trick is to keep your alignment to LEFT, select COURRIER 12 and write out your rough/working script from here.”
