Need help? We’ve got your back.
Got a script heading for production that still isn’t where it needs to be? Maybe your dialogue has plenty of snap and crackle, but no pop? Or perhaps when it comes to subtext, the script exhibits the finesse of a T-Rex? Or maybe you’ve got a killer idea and want someone else to break the story for you so you can hit the ground running.
Or maybe you’re a busy producer and exec and you simply want to hire someone to nail it once and for all.
Whatever you need, we can do it.
Throughout the years, Coverage, Ink has written dozens of scripts for hire and polished many more, for emerging writers as well as producers. Our scripts have won contests and gotten people signed. And our rates are pretty amazing, starting with our $45/hr rate for small jobs, all the way up to screenplay or pilot origination at a price/quality ratio no one else can touch.
WHY USE CI PRO Writing Services?
With Coverage, Ink, you get the advantage of our team. You’re not just hiring a writer (with all the potential difficulties which may come with that — flakeage, unreliability, story execution not up to par, final product going in a different direction than what you wanted, etc.) On every script written for hire, CI head Jim Cirile acts as production manager/story editor, guiding the process and ensuring that the final deliverable has the desired professionalism. As well, all CI Pro script origination jobs come with our CONSIDER guarantee.
GUARANTEED CONSIDER – All Coverage, Ink Pro scripts are written for hire come with our CONSIDER guarantee. After completion of the polish draft, we will anonymously submit the script (under a pseudonym) to one of our team for coverage. After receiving the coverage, the script will then be polished (at no additional charge,) and again, the script will be sent to a DIFFERENT reader for anonymous coverage. We do this as many times as needed until your screenplay scores a coveted “consider” for the script — guaranteeing you a ultra-high quality product, ready to rock and open doors. You can’t get that with hiring an independent writer!
As well, we will pair you with the best possible writer for your project, so no need to worry that your horror/thriller will be written by someone scared of a little blood, for example. Our team includes many produced, WGA, and award-winning writers.
AT NO TIME DOES COVERAGE, INK ATTACH ITSELF. Coverage, Ink will never come aboard your project as a producer or try to take any percentage of sale or option fee. However, if you partner with one of our analysts as a co-writer, the deal may include some sort of sharing of the script fee in the event of a sale or option. We are happy to discuss all the options in this regard in depth.
Please be advised that ghostwriting is our least preferred working situation. Writers, we would rather have you partner with one of our analysts and share credit than have you take all the credit for work you did not do. There are many types of deals we can work out where you and the story analyst will share credit.
There are only certain circumstances where we will agree to a ghostwriting situation, such as doing a production polish for a producer.
