Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $66

I write scripts, from 1 page to 100 pages and more, and I would love to write scripts for you. I am adept at taking your simple or complex information and fashioning it into easy to digest narration with eye-catching visuals that will resonate with your audience.

What makes me different?

Unlike most copywriters, I have decades of experience writing and producing corporate videos in the high tech industry and at NASA.

This gives me a deep understanding of the entire production process from initial brainstorming to the final edit. So...

Service Description

I offer scriptwriting and story boarding, from help with initial brainstorming to a final draft, ready to be handed off for production.

If we work together, you'll be reaping the benefits of my 20+ years of experience writing effective, award winning videos.

I will take your concepts, or create new concepts based on your input, do the necessary background research, interview the key content experts, and develop scripts, that are ready for production.

Over the years I have worked with such companies and organizations as NASA, TRW, the U.S. Army, Connect Marketing, Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption, Apple Computer, Varian Associates, Zenger Miller & Associates and Digital Equipment Corporation.

Along the way, I have worked in all aspects of video production, from writing, producing, editing, directing and even dragging cables, so I know the importance of a good script and a well organized crew.

I know how to effectively interview engineers, scientists, content experts, and managers at all levels of an organization to glean the information necessary to create written content.

I've also coordinated and directed vendor support including on-camera talent, narrators, graphic designers, post production facilities and sound studios.

All of this combined experience makes me perfectly suited to handle your video scripts from initial meetings through the final draft.

If this sounds like the kind of help you're looking for, then let's talk!
