    And then I made a deal. Mark would convince Kevin

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    And then I made a deal. Mark would convince Kevin to make another video explaining that all was a “inside joke” and I would help Kevin to go on with his life, performing a "ghost"

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Dear emsr2d2:

    Once again, thanks for your help.

    The woman speaking, will use makeup and with help with other persons that will help with special effects, she will perform a ghost. Kevin, the person who will "see" the "ghost" will be drunk.

    Thanks.

    I think you mean she will play the role of a ghost. You can't "perform" a ghost.
    I am not a teacher.
