This is not your typical "canned" script coverage. We analyze your screenplay/script on a line-by-line basis looking for key factors such as continuity, logic, extraneous plot components and characters, and more. We look for obvious errors, plus hidden factors that might negatively affect your end product. We note errors in formatting, grammar, spelling and other construction defects. We also analyze commercial viability factors such as marketability and freshness. You will receive a printed copy of your screenplay with all of the original markups, plus a 1-2 page analysis of your script's strengths and weaknesses, rating grid, and an overall rating of PASS, CONSIDER, or RECOMMEND. 7-10 business days.

Producers and agents do not have time to review the thousands of screenplays they receive daily. Cut through the noise with a killer "one-pager" that clearly states why they should consider your script. Includes a logline, pitch, and synopsis.


Loglines are the most critical part of promoting and selling your screenplay concept. For many writers, its harder than writing the screenplay itself. We will craft a throat-grabbing eye-catching logline for you to use when sending query letters and discussing your screenplay. We give you 3 different versions.


PITCH (Elevator Speech)
You have one shot! Can you explain why anyone should care about your screenplay in 15 seconds or less? We will create a one-paragraph pitch statement that can help you grab a producer's, agent's, or manager's attention quickly.


Producers, agents and manager rarely have the time or desire to slog through the thousands of requests they receive daily. Make yours stand out! Your query letter will include a brief overview of who you are, your logline, and a pitch.


Do you need to talk? Are you looking for a sounding board for your ideas, your dreams and aspirations? Speak one-on-one with Steven Kirwan, our Executive Director, on any topic or subject related to screenwriting. 30 minute sessions.
