We offer three types of screenplay coverage depending on your needs: 2 Page Coverage, 5 Page Coverage, 10 Page Coverage & we also have a Proofreading Service. Details on each can be seen above.
Our professional script coverage readers will give you an unbiased critique; tell you what’s working, what isn’t, and more importantly why. Our script coverage reports break down your screenplay into various categories, such as premise, character, dialogue, structure, pace, market potential and more depending on the depth of the coverage. This is a great way to identify problem areas. For example, you may have a brilliantly engaging protagonist, but aren’t upping the stakes enough.
If you’re an avid book reader, it’s likely that you’ve come across a self-published work by a new author and was able to immediately tell that they hadn’t used an editor or beta-tested their book with trusted readers. Just as authors use editors to help turn a good book into a great one, screenwriters use readers to do the same.
Similar to authors, it’s hard to step back and look at your own work objectively, especially when you’ve been so close to it for a long time, but as you’re effectively writing your screenplay in the hopes that it gets read, so getting feedback is essential.
Coverage offers up an impartial look at your script by someone who not only knows story inside and out, they know the industry. If you send your script to a studio, agent, or producer, and your screenplay gets read, you’ll never be privy to the notes that were written by the reader, meaning you’ll never get the chance to address the issues raised in their report. With screenplay coverage, you can, meaning it’s a great tool to help make your script industry ready.
Our ultimate goal is, and always has been, is to help emerging writers break into the industry, and that’s exactly what our dedicated team of readers and consultants do. We have many years of experience behind us, and can deliver detailed and comprehensive script coverage at extremely reasonable rates.
All our readers take part in judging scripts for our annual Feature, TV Pilot, Short Film Fund & Podcast contests, and our growing alumni of Success Stories shows that we’ve got a great eye for talent. If one of our readers decides to champion your script and recommend it via coverage, it gets assessed by our internal team and with your permission, we’re able to send the script out to relevant members on our roster of Industry Professionals and Directors, meaning there’s also a great opportunity to gain exposure as well as gain helpful additional feedback and at no extra cost to the writer!
