Feedback Type Description

First 20 pages feedback: Your screenplay should hook the reader within the first 20 pages.  You'll want to make sure that your script hooks the reader so that they want to keep reading and find out what happens next.  This feedback will answer that for you.

General Feedback (1-2 pages of notes): You've written your screenplay, and perhaps you've even rewritten it.  We'll read your entire script and you'll receive personalized notes, including what we see, what we think and suggestions on how to enhance it.

Detailed Feedback (up to 4 pages): Selecting this option will provide writers with a detailed analysis of their script, including suggestions on how to improve the writing, story, structure and more, such as how to up the stakes.
