Script Coverage for Screenwriters & Filmmakers
Our script coverage report will identify the strengths and weaknesses in your story. Our script readers have analyzed many scripts for clients who have pitched to HBO and Showtime. If you want to get ahead of your competition and make better movies, get candid script coverage from us. We are the only script coverage company to win Corporate America's Boardroom Elite Award for "Script Consultants of the Year" and "Best Screenplay Editing Services."
This script coverage service is for writers and filmmakers who are thick-skinned and want unfettered script feedback. If you seriously want to know whether the script you have in your hand is ready to be shown to a producer or ready for funding, get script coverage from us. Don't blindly show your script to a producer without knowing where your script stands.
Our clients include producers, some of Amazon's bestsellers and screenwriters who are represented by literary agencies. If you are new to screenwriting, please note that script coverage is not the same as script notes. If you need in-depth feedback to help you brainstorm and rewrite your script, get our script notes, also known as story development notes. But if you want to see how well your script ranks and get a professional opinion on your script, get our script coverage report.

Our script readers will be frank in their feedback -- just the way it is in the film industry. Whether you are a new screenwriter, a repped screenwriter, or an Amazon bestseller crossing over to screenwriting, we will hold you to a high standard. We want to provide you with the same level of real industry experience -- as if you were to submit your script to a literary agency or production company. You won't get to select a specific reader to evaluate your script. At a production company, the producer will have the script reader or development assistant read the scripts. You won't have a chance to explain to the reader what you were trying to convey in your script. Because if it's a well-told story, anyone can effortlessly read the script and understand it. But if your story is disorganized and confusing, your script will garner a "Pass" rating.
For New Screenwriters
By pointing out what's not working in the script, we're helping you become aware of what needs to be fixed in order to make your script stronger. Otherwise, when it comes time to pitching your script to a producer, you will blow your chance of getting your script picked up. The producer's assistant won't go easy on you as well. How you present the characters and dialogue in your story will have an impact on the readability of the script. Additionally, if the script is not formatted to industry standard, it'll make you and your script look unprofessional. As a result, producers will not take you seriously. And if the script is riddled with needless characters pulling the story in various directions, don't expect the reader to completely understand your story. If it's unclear to the reader, it's going to be unclear to the movie audience. It's the screenwriter's role to convey his/her story in a clear, engaging and easy-to-follow manner. Dialogue creates plot. If your characters are saying irrelevant things, they're not creating plot. They're creating confusion.
Our script readers have to be realistic and truthful in their approach. You may not always want to hear the truth about the flaws in your script, but neglecting to get honest feedback will hold you back. We are here to help you become a stronger storyteller by being tough in our analysis and frank in our script coverage report. If you are reluctant to hear the truth about your script, you are limiting your potential to become a better screenwriter. Only by knowing the weaknesses in your script will you be able to dramatically improve yourself and crush your competition.
