Rushes Logging – £1.50 per audio minute

Transcription of unedited footage for use in the TV production process.  All dialogue transcribed verbatim with timecodes for every change of speaker.

Post-Production Transcription (Type 1) – £1.85 per audio minute

All dialogue transcribed verbatim, with timecodes for every change of speaker.  Captions, graphics and credits included.  In these scripts, timecodes are given in a column on the left corresponding to dialogue in a column on the right, with a new row for every change of speaker.

Post-Production Transcription (Type 2) – £3.65 per audio minute

As above, but with all shots logged, described and timecoded in separate columns alongside the dialogue.  These scripts use a four column-format.

Reversions – £ad hoc

These are alternate versions of existing TV shows, usually for international audiences.  Where a post-production script of the original version has already been produced, we will edit the existing script to correspond to the alternate version of the show at a reduced rate.

For post-production transcripts where more or less detail is required than outlined in the options above, please contact us for a quote.  To include timecoded music cues, please add 15p per audio minute.  For timecodes accurate to the frame, please add 35p per audio minute to the above rates.
