Script Timer – Words to Time Calculator

‘If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Script’
Was said by: Mark Twain? Benjamin Franklin? Abraham Lincoln?  You??

Even for the most gifted writers, squeezing a lot of information into a short amount of time is extremely hard work…The script is critical to your most effective whiteboard video, explainer video, speech, or feature film.  We get it because we have been writing, directing, producing live and animated videos for brands like Cisco, Comcast, Ben & Jerry’s, Harvard, and hundreds of mid size and start up brands.

So, Rip Media Group is here to help on the timing and more.  Below, there are two calculators for you to use. You can even use the slider to decide on the speed of your delivery.  If you need help or advice on the script, storyboard (see sample) (we have written 1,000 commercials, see samples), please, just ask.


We'll estimate how long the finished audio will be.

If you have a script, just paste it in, and watch the magic timer.

If it can be written, or thought, it can be filmed.

Stanley Kubrick

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.
