Specialty Scripts, Lists and Captioning
What's a specialty script?
A major part of the post production process is the creation and delivery of scripts and lists that contain the spoken dialogue of a film or television program. These scripts are used to create subtitles, closed captions, and translations and are an integral component when studios distribute movies and television programs internationally.
The PCS staff is trained to create industry standard scripts and lists that are required by television production companies and major film studios including As Broadcast Scripts, Combined Continuity lists (CCSL & CDSL), spotting lists, and dialogue lists. We have a format for each script that we can provide for you OR if you have a specific design that you need, just send us a sample, and we’ll be happy to match it or create something that meets your needs.

CAPTIONS are titles designed for the deaf and hard of hearing. In addition to the actor's dialogue, captions include notations for sound effects, music and other background noises when these elements are important to the on-screen action. There are two kinds of captioning. Closed and open. Closed captioning allows for captions to be displayed only when desired. Open captions are a permanent part of the picture and cannot be turned off.
