I get asked about doing script reports a lot. A script report generally outlines your plot, looks at what works and what doesn’t and highlights areas where the script may, or may not run into problems.
I don’t do script reports like that. My script report style is more like a professional script edit done by a genuine script editor and script expert.
My script report service involves reading your script and making notes on it as I read. This gives a better idea of what the script reader or editor is thinking. Another difference to the way I do script reports is that I’ll actually give you ideas and suggestions on how to fix problems and advance the script to the next level.
If you’ve written a script, it’s very important to let someone professional read it before you send it out to producers, directors, production companies or broadcasters. My script report service is the best way to get your script read by someone with experience and knowledge of the industry.
I charge £100 for a script report on a full feature; prices vary for shorts or TV pieces. If you’re interested please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading and get in touch if you need help.
