How much do script consultants charge? Fees from the leading UK script consultant

As a leading UK Script Consultant I get asked a lot about the fees I charge for my industry leading script reading service.

The fees are here:

  • £120 for a feature film
  • £80 for a TV drama up to one hour
  • £50 for a short film up to 20 pages

In depth script reports

The reports that I provide are the most in-depth of the market, so I’m told. Feedback from clients is amazing – with many clients choosing the service over and over again.

My script reports are often up to 20 pages long – and its all killer no filler as the reports are packed with page by page notes and feedback as well as insider hints, and useful screenwriting tips.

The reports  are extremely useful for script writers starting out and often include details on agents, competitions and how to start and build a scriptwriting career (especially if you’re UK based).  

Script writing career help and advice

Unlike a lot of these anonymous script reader services – you will know exactly who is reading your script and what level of experience they have, as writer, within the industry.
