“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
– Anonymous screenwriter who learned the hard way
Now starting at $99.99!
Don’t trust your screenwriting career to some faceless, unknown script reader whose skills and biases are unknown. You’ve read my blog — you know my skill set, knowledge and passion for screenwriting. Let me personally help you make your script the best it can be.
There are three effective options to meet the needs of any budget:
Targeted Script Notes: $99.99
You asked for it. You got it!
Many of you simply want a quick, focused assessment of your script. That’s what this service is all about.
I’ll read your script and provide you with one streamlined page of notes highlighting what works and what needs work. I’ll also give you a final grade showing you exactly where you stand in terms of concept, structure, characters, dialogue and style.
Verbal Script Notes: $149.99
Instead of giving you written notes, we’ll speak on the phone for a full hour, and I’ll give you the goods on your script. This interactive option allows you to ask any questions you have — which are not just limited to your script. You can ask me about the industry, discuss loglines, or whatever else is on your mind.
Additionally, I’ll provide you with my margin notes — the notes I’ve made while reading through your script. These include specific issues, typos, thoughts, suggestions, etc. They’ll be highlighted right on the pages where they occur, making it easy to pinpoint the specific problem areas. Most other readers charge hundreds of dollars for this service alone.
Detailed Script Notes and Logline: $199.99
This in-depth script critique provides you with 4+ pages of written notes covering all of the strengths and weaknesses of your screenplay.
You’ll also get:
- My final grade showing you exactly where you stand in terms of concept, structure, characters, dialogue and style
- My margin notes showing specific issues, typos, thoughts, suggestions, etc., highlighted right on the pages where they occur
- A professional logline that encapsulates your premise in a compelling, industry-appropriate way.
Standard turnaround time is five business days or sooner. So if you email me your script on a Sunday, I’ll have it back to you, with your all your script notes, by Friday evening. If you email it to me on a Monday, I’ll have everything back to you by the following Monday evening.
Scheduling for the Verbal Script Notes depends on my availability but can typically be arranged within a week.
- Purchase desired service above
- Email your script (in either PDF or Final Draft format) to firstname.lastname@example.org
- I will email you back, within eight hours of receiving your payment and script, to confirm receipt
If you’ve already checked around, you know that this is quite simply the best value for your money anywhere.
Give yourself the best chance to breakthrough this year!
