    A Treatment comes in real handy when writing a script, but personally, I tend to write them after the fact. But you will be expected to have one (especially in TV).

    Kay LukeWriting Film & TV: HI! 
    I specialize in formatting, continuity, and characterizations/development.  I used to write coverage for $300 a pop, but I've semi-retired and I'm only writing  to sell under my own name these days.  I also have some experience with and knowledge of the Studio System as well as the indie scene in Hollywood.  I'm quite a good script doctor and I give excellent note! Free for group members, of course!

    I also need  non-technical (i,e., Did you like it?) feedback  on some of my stuff.
