Full Screenplay Consultation
Invest in your screenwriting career by hiring a seasoned pro and industry veteran to analyze your screenplay. The FULL CONSULTATION is my most popular and comprehensive screenplay analysis package and features detailed handwritten notes on your draft (or in your pdf), a typed worksheet with notes and a scoring grid, email follow-ups AND a follow-up phone call. This is a fantastic service and a very reasonable investment.
What you get:
- I will read your draft 3 times.
- Detailed handnotes on the draft (or electronic notes in your document), showing my reactions and questions as I read it and pointing out problems with all major elements, especially in regards to structure, pacing, cutting and trimming, clarity, emotion, and your voice on the page.
- Crucial line editing (fixes to spelling and grammar errors, format issues, paragraph breaks and red-lining what I suggest you cut and trim).
- 4-5 pgs. of handwritten summary at the end of the script. A “wrap-up” that outlines the major critical issues in your script and touches on my overall commercial assessment. Please include five blank pages at the end of your script for these notes.
- 15 Crucial Story Questions worksheet — how your script addresses these vital story elements. This most closely resembles a COVERAGE report, with a “box score” rating on a scale of Excellent, Good, Fair, and Poor and includes detailed typed notes.
- My E-Book PDF bundle: Story Maps: How to Write a GREAT Screenplay & Story Maps: Booster Pack #1 (learn more). Includes 19 sample Story Maps from successful movies so you can see my method in action in hit films.
- 2 rounds of email follow-up questions.
- 1 hour follow-up phone/video conference.
Requirements: Completed feature-length screenplay (90-130 pages), in standard screenplay format in COURIER FONT, 12 POINT SIZE, with 1″ margins on top and bottom and page numbers.
Note: please judge the length of your script with at least 1″ margins on top and bottom of the document and the dialogue set in a 3.5″-4″ wide block. Other margins may distort the true length of the draft. Fees will be assessed if over 130 pages (see Extras).
