I don't want to click on the 'submit Proposal' button before I am ready. I don't want to mess up my one and only chance ... can the proposal be submitted as a MS Word file, or PDF file?
i am sure you can send PDF files or rtf. I would not use a Word file by myself, because it's proprietary. But can someone tell me, which format the proposal should have. Do the same rules apply than for scripts or can i choose my own format. It makes a lot of difference, regarding the amount of text that fits on one page.
It sounds like the proposal for this is a treatment. Treatments are written in paragraph form as a short story would be. They generally do not include dialogue (unless there are lines of dialogue that are pivitol to the story or otherwise important) as they are strictly story (think "beat sheet" but with a bit more detail). A good treatment is 2-3 pages, and no more than 5 (at least as a rule... I've had producers ask me for 8-10 page treatments before... which was just odd).
