BSI Films develops, submits and pitches scripts to Cable, Streaming, Studios and
Broadcast Companies.

Now That Your Script Is Written:

The next step... is to prepare an executive overview (package) that provides creative and business information about your script, that industry executives will want to see.

 

Prior to submitting or pitching your project, the following steps should be completed first:

 

1. Have your script polished by a credited writer.

2. Create a Producers Package - this is a document that highlights want your project is about and includes ... a top sheet budget that highlighting what it will cost to produce it and an executive overview of key creative elements specific to its storyline and production.

 

3. Have an executive producer with experience and ability to submit your script / package to industry executives.

Our Script Polish

Emmy® Award Winning Writer, Award Winning Producer and Show-runner

 

Script Polish

    a. For feature film scripts our rates start at $895.00 and up

    b. For scripted series rates start at $695.00

Why is a Script Polish needed:

 

This service is primarily for scripts needing an evaluation, analysis, edit and comparison of what the writers' vision is… to what has been written. 

 

Our Script Polish also follows the same guidelines and standards investors, major studio and industry executive clients requires Susan to adhere to when asked to Polish a script prior to executives reviewing or approving funding or sending a script to series. 

 

All scripts are evaluated, analyzed and edited to meet both the vision of the writer, business or programming needs of the party it's being submitted to.

Q&A interview with North America and International Investors and Buyers

Some of you may have already read this information. I posted it again because for those who have not read it, may find it helpful ...  contact us / click here.
My name is Elyse, I'm a producer with (BSI Media & Film Productions)

For this post ...  I had a candid conversation with investors from the U.S. and Syd Shaffer from Europe.

Mr. Shaffer and his team have helped raise funds for some of the world’s top grossing films, including several major projects that our executive producers – Slavik I.A. and Susan B. Flanagan have helped develop and produce. He agreed to answer a few questions I had about funding independent projects. His comments are below.
*Warning … Syd has a colorful way of talking.
  • Elyse: What chance does an independent really have of getting a film funded?
  • Syd: They have the same chance as anyone else in this room, if their plan has the right people presenting it and they play by the rules.
 
  • Elyse: So, who are the “right people” and what are the rules?
