Take Your Screenplay to the Next Level with ISA-Certified Professional Script Feedback
Screenplay competitions like Emerging Screenwriters are a great way to take a chance on your dreams through your creativity. However, unless you win the Grand Prize or one of the Genre Awards, you may never know how your script actually compared – and even if you do find success, you won’t actually know what it was about your script that caught the judges’ eyes and set you apart. That’s where Professional Script Feedback comes in.
In this business, doors only open every so often, so when you walk through you want to make sure you present the best version of what you have to offer. You don’t just want your screenplay to win a competition – you want producers and agents to read your screenplay and say, “I want THIS.” Script Feedback will give you that insight into those industry minds before you even get the appointment.
General Feedback (2-3 Pages) – You know your work inside and out, now it’s time to get a second opinion. We’ll read your full script, and you’ll receive a detailed personalized critique on what we see, what we think, and suggestions on where to go next.
ISA Development Evaluation (5 Pages) – This is for those looking to submit to the ISA Development Slate. Writers who select this feedback will not only be considered for the Slate but receive suggestions on how to improve overall writing, story, structure, commercial appeal and more.
ISA-Certified Script Readers are experienced industry professionals with a variety of success in screenwriting, producing, and literary management. They are here to empower you to improve your work based on their well-informed perspective and how it relates to the structure and technique contained within your script. We strive to give you something more than just a pat on the back; we’re here to propel your script to the front of the line.
