Did you know that over 90% of screenplay submissions to agents and production companies fail to get past a first read? Whether you choose the screenplay competition/movie contest route, or submit your script to agents and producers directly, you only get ONE chance, so you need to make it count! In the screenplay development process, there is no substitute for professional script coverage and screenplay analysis.
I've read and provided professional script coverage and development notes for thousands of screenplays written by both new writers and seasoned pros. My script coverage is intended to help the writer polish both their script and their writing skills. As part of my screenplay and TV script coverage services, you'll receive extensive notes covering story, premise, plot, character development, dialogue, structure, and format.
My Experience Includes...Over twenty years working as a professional freelance reader for Hollywood agents, screenplay contests, movie producers and film and TV studios. I count Stephen Cannell Productions, Walt Disney Studios, ABC TV and Saddle Ranch Pictures among my list of satisfied clients. I've also critiqued, provided development notes, and edited scripts for many independent writers, including an Emmy Award winner.
Since 1990 I've worked every year as a reader/judge for one of the most prestigious screenplay contests in the industry.
