How long is the process and consultation for The Reilly Story Collaboration?
|Every client and project is different and depends on schedules and what state the project is in. It usually takes two weeks to go through the free consultation; for Mr. Reilly to read the script/article/short and to complete notes and finalize the collaboration appointment.|
Can I work with you on a script that isn’t finished yet?
|Absolutely. Depending on the length, we can find a pricing plan perfect for you. In a lot of cases, a client is blocked as to where to go next. The Reilly Story Collaboration can help unblock, inspire and set you on a definitive path to completion.|
How do I know you won’t steal my idea?
|I will be the only one reading the item and ALL my consults are confidential. For writer concerns I will also provide a confidentiality agreement to protect your work and the work we do together.|
What if I can’t afford your fee?
|I offer sliding scale prices. I am more interested in helping you complete your story and helping you rather than money. I love what I do and love storytelling and sharing what I’ve learned with my clients. Together we can come to an arrangement that works best for you and your wallet!|
Do you have popular screenplays to share with your clients so they can learn more about the writing and format?
|I have a large collection of screenplays (produced, popular and in development), with access to more. I will always share what I have to help my clients learn and grow as a writer.|
Do you accept credit card?
|Yes. Through Paypal I can accept credit cards for each collaboration .|
How long is the free consultation and what if I don’t want to continue after?
|The free consultation is precisely one hour and can be completed over the phone or via Skype. We discuss everything about your project and the benefits of collaborating. If for whatever reason you do not want to continue that is entirely your choice. As a writer myself, I want to help and promote good storytelling. If the collaboration is not for you there are no hard feelings.|
Do you offer discounts for returning collaborations?
|There is a discount for returning writers. If you have already completed a collaboration and want to submit the same (re-written) material, the price is 100 dollars. 75 dollars off the initial collaboration!|
What makes you the expert?
|Nothing. And I do not claim myself to be an expert rather, a professional who has been doing this a long time. My experience can only help. Some consultations charge as much as 200, 300 sometimes 600 dollars for a consultation from people outside the business who have never set foot in a studio or pitch meeting! I believe in myself and methods and love to share and collaborate with writers! I’ve been there and my experience shows this.|
Can I follow up with you after the collaboration if I have questions? Do I have to pay more?
|Yes, you can ALWAYS follow up with questions. I do not charge for these follow ups and welcome them to ensure you are on the right track!|
