FEATURE FILM SERVICES

FEATURE FILM SERVICES

Feature film distributors often have widely varying delivery requirements. Most distribution and sales agreements specify extensive detail to be included in a Post Production Script, referring to scene, shot and action descriptions and explanations of dialogue such as slang and colloquialisms. Others are more traditional, referring principally to the soundtrack - specifically, dialogue and music.

A standard Post Production Script for film will include scene headings, spot numbers, footage or timecode references, timings, music cues and credit lists. The finished scripts are delivered to you in paper or electronic form, including PDF, Word, WordPerfect, text e-mail attachments or HTML Web pages. Preliminary and final spotting lists can be emailed direct to translators and subtitlers.
