You've spent months writing your screenplay. You think the script is ready to send to the film companies. They'll give it to a single reader. His four-page script coverage report will either make or break your screenplay. Is your film script ready for this? Wouldn't you like to know how your screenplay will be perceived before you submit it?
Get the experts on your side. Drawing on 8 years experience as a script doctor and screenplay reader for major Hollywood film companies, Peter Soutter has developed a range of screenwriting services, including script coverage, analysis and screenplay formatting, to make your script impress the people that matter.
Peter Soutter is a recommended script consultant/story analyst of the Screenwriters Federation of America.
Film companies hire script readers to evaluate your script in a three-four page coverage report plus a one-word recommendation. The film company executive decides whether or not to pursue your script based solely on this report. Script Surgery will provide a carbon-copy, studio-style script coverage that gives the scriptwriter the chance to rework his/her screenplay before that all-important submission, without the pain of rejection.
Do you think your script needs another draft? Tired of doing it on your own? You need an objective, industry professional who has taken hundreds of scripts through this difficult last draft. Script Surgery's script doctoring analysis is a 10-15 page report with line-by-line script editor's notes detailing what needs to be addressed in the next rewrite.
Have you got a great idea for a script? Are you thinking about submitting a treatment to a film company or funding body before you write your script? Let Script Surgery cast an expert eye over it and make it as marketable as possible.
