    Dear CH......reconsider your decision, since it's neither fair nor professional to give extra time to someone you like behind the curtains.

      Hi! I was a little too late to this contest, so couldn't finish my piece. Nevertheless, I thought I should contact you to to let you know of my experience with writing film summaries for YouTube channels. I have written over 25 film summary scripts for Flix Recap and Flix Explained channels, the first of which has grown from 0 to more than 34k subscribers now. I would love to write such scripts for your channel as well. I know the contest is over, but if you would like to go through some of my writing samples, please look through my Freelancer portfolio or send me a message and we can discuss the possibility of collaborating in the future. Thank you for your time!

    Dear CH......kindly advise what % of uniqueness do you seek in the synopsis?

      • 4 months ago

      Since there are so many similar synopsis already present online.......writing a 100% unique content is not possible and will always get detected by plagiarism checker.

      The movie is like 2.5 hours long......the synopsis could go well over 3500 words!.......unless you wish a shorter one?
