In the Objectives section, I'd use the infinitve:
1. To raise... etc

4. Provides market leads for screenwriters and prepares screenwriters with THE necessary skills and documents to ensure a mutually beneficial transaction.

Thanks tdol, some questions here:

1. In the Ojectives section, we use infinitives, how come infinitives are not used in the Services section?

2. "Friendship" in Objectives (2) and "relationship" in Services (2) are all singular. These can't be plural?

3. In Servies (4), what is pitching the work? Also, agreement document and legal advice should not be plural?

The objective is to provide something. the services actually do it.

Friendship can be plural if youlike and relationship should be (sorry, I missed it last night).

Pitching is trying to sell an idea to a producer.;-)

Is agreement document plural or singular, in Services (4)?
