We have in-house copywriters and scriptwriters as well as a network of talented specialist journalists to cover every subject. We understand how tricky it can be to create a script, so our writer will be with you from the very start; they’ll do preliminary research, conduct telephone interviews to dig deeper into the subject area and develop an outline that they’ll then use to develop a script tailored specifically to your target audience… meaning that your messages hit home every time.
So if you need a script that’s light on technical jargon, or just want a script that will inject a bit of humour into your explainer video, get in touch today.
Telling a story that will capture your audience's attention is key to any successful video project, and at Slate and Mortar we understand how important it is to do this in a unique, engaging and contemporary manner.
