Why The Script is your video's
best friend

Narrative Blueprint

Think of a script as the blueprint of your video. It's where we map out the storyline, dialogue, and visual cues, setting the stage for a compelling narrative.

Tone and Voice

It’s our opportunity to nail your brand’s tone of voice. Our scripting ensures that your video speaks in a voice that's unmistakably yours, whether it's cheeky and fun or sleek and professional.

Engagement and Clarity

The right script doesn't just tell a story; it engages and informs your audience clearly and effectively. It's about making sure your message doesn't just reach your audience but sticks with them.
How much does Scripting cost?
Scripting for a video – the foundation upon which all great videos are built! The cost of scripting can vary as much as the plots in a TV drama series. Let's dive into what goes into this cost:

Length and Complexity of the Script:
A short, straightforward promotional script will cost less than a detailed script for a long-form corporate video or a narrative film.

Experience and Expertise of the Writer:
A seasoned scriptwriter with a track record of successful projects will typically charge more than an up-and-comer.

Research Required:
If the script requires extensive research or technical knowledge, this will be reflected in the cost.

Revisions and Feedback:
The number of revisions and the extent of changes requested can impact the final price. More rounds of revisions usually mean a higher cost.

Turnaround Time:
Need that script ASAP? Rush jobs can incur additional fees.

Rough Cost Estimates

Basic Scripting:
For simple, short video scripts, you might be looking at a few hundred pounds.

Mid-Level Projects:
More detailed and longer scripts can range from £500 to £2,000, depending on the complexity and length.

High-End Scripting:
For scripts requiring extensive research, technical accuracy, or narrative storytelling (like short films or detailed corporate videos), prices can start at £2,000 and go upwards.

Tips for Budgeting:

Clear Brief: Provide a detailed brief to the writer. The more specific you are about your needs, the more accurate the quote.
Factor in Revisions: It's normal to have a few rounds of revisions, but extensive rewrites can add up.
Value Experience: While it's tempting to go with the cheapest option, experienced writers can add significant value to your project.

In summary, the cost of scripting for a video varies based on the project's requirements and the writer's expertise. It's an essential investment that lays the groundwork for your video's success. A well-crafted script can captivate your audience and effectively convey your message, so it's worth getting it right!
