Script Consulting: Script Notes + Logline + Rating Grid
Looking for a sharp script consultant? We work with new screenwriters, repped screenwriters, directors, and executive producers, including award-winning filmmakers. If you need creative input and in-depth script feedback in the form of script notes (story development notes) to help spark ideas for you to refine your plot and characters, use this service. We accept film and TV scripts.
If you are a screenwriter who wants to pitch your script to a producer, and you are uncertain if your script is ready to be pitched, get thorough script notes from us to see what aspects of your script need to be polished.
If you are a producer or director who needs insightful script feedback and creative input, our script notes can benefit you. Often times, production companies will invest money in high-end cameras, lighting gears, and set designs, but one area they tend to overlook is the importance of giving their screenwriters useful script feedback. Doing so will help you -- the producer -- reduce the cost of producing your movie or TV pilot because a script that contains scenes that are superfluous to the plot will unnecessarily increase your movie or TV show's production budget, and get your TV show cancelled.
Casting actors to play underdeveloped characters that do little to pull the audience into your story will not only waste rehearsal time, but it can hurt your image as a producer. No amount of special effects or action sequences in a script can continually hold your audience's interest without a good story behind it. A story that struggles to hold the audience's interest usually suffers from weak dialogue exchanges that don't serve the plot, disorganized storytelling, characters that fail to form a bond with their audience, and a meandering storyline.
Our scene-specific notes will point out weak spots in the story to help our clients brainstorm and further develop their stories. The script notes will identify major character(s) and scene(s) that cause story roadblocks. The notes will also include creative input/suggestions to improve your story.
If you are new to screenwriting, please be advised that this is not a "co-writing" service where we rewrite scenes and dialogue exchanges for you. Additionally, it is not a proofreading service. Our script notes service is geared towards providing creative feedback to help you further refine your story and characters. When you get script notes, what you are getting is professional, subjective script feedback.
NOTE: If after placing your order -- and we have NOT started reading your script/writing material -- you need to swap out your script for a different script or an updated version of the same script, please be advised that there will be a "swap out service fee" of $10. If the page count of the new script is longer than the initial version submitted, the turnaround time may be longer, especially if the script exceeds 120 pages. Any additional pages beyond 120 pages will be charged at $2.00 USD per page. In addition, our customer support will email you a personalized e-invoice/payment link to pay for the increased page count if the new total page count falls into a higher price category as listed on this page.
Please make sure you submit the correct version of your script to prevent any delay in the turnaround time. If the replacement script is longer, we'll email you an e-invoice to pay the difference. If the replacement script is shorter, and there's a difference in the price, we'll issue you a credit. For more info on swapping out your scripts, please email customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org or read our Frequently Asked Questions page.
