SERVICES

FEATURE FILMS

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. Our two most popular feature post scripts are:

CDCSL

(Combined Dialogue, Continuity and Master English Subtitle Spotting List)

A single document containing both dialogue list, detailed continuity and subtitle spotting list.

A CDCSL includes all the elements of a combined continuity script:

  • each shot is numbered and given a time reference

  • continuity is concisely described

  • dialogue is word-accurate and includes ID

  • music cues are numbered and time referenced

  • main subtitles and supers are numbered in.

Plus a time reference in and out and duration for dialogue, main subtitles and supers

CDCL

(Combined Dialogue & Continuity Spotting List)

A single document containing both dialogue list and detailed continuity information.

  • each shot is numbered and given a time reference

  • continuity is concisely described

  • music cues are numbered and time referenced

  • dialogue is word-accurate and includes ID

Plus a time reference in and out and duration for dialogue and supers.

TELEVISION

As with feature films, PS-PostScript prepares a comprehensive range of post production and transmission scripts. Networks and international sales agents and broadcasters often don’t require as much detail for dedicated television product as for feature films.

 

A post-production script package for television drama and factual will almost always include however a spotting list with all dialogue, timings, characters, head and tail credit lists and music cues.

Popular formats for broadcasters include:

- As Broadcast Transmission Post Production Script

- Transmission Dialogue List

    If you require a foot and frame script, we need a dub with a foot and frame burn, broken into the various reels, not one continuous burn. The dub should have locked picture, final audio, visual FX and dialogue - including final ADR.

  2. SHOOTING SCRIPT

    We need a copy of the shooting script on disc or by email in any of the usual formats - rtf .doc .pdf .wps .txt .asc .fdr. We may be able accommodate other formats, please contact us to confirm. We prefer to receive your script in advance of the scripting date, this helps us to schedule accurately. The script should include the original text and a translation of any foreign language dialogue in the film.

  3. FINAL MAIN & END CREDITS

    We need a doc file containing the Final Main and End Credits for the film.

  4. DELIVERY SCHEDULE

    We ideally need a copy of your Post Production Script delivery requirements.
