Due Diligence

The first step to hire us for your screenwriter is probably to exercise due diligence. This is the investigation or exercise of care that a reasonable business or person is expected to take before entering into an agreement or contract with another party. At a minimum you should review our site, some writing samples, as well as the services we offer. Afterwards, complete our contact form if you wish to hire a screenwriter or have questions about our services.

 

We want you to compare our services, track record, and prices to estimate your perceived return on investment (ROI). If you decide to move forward then we will sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to protect your materials and a contract for our services.
