Script Analysis

Welcome to the Selling Your Screenplay Script Analysis page. If you’re looking for a professional analysis of your screenplay, we can help. We currently offer two services, an in depth, deep dive into your screenplay by a working industry professional, or a more economical script analysis by a studio / production company reader.

Studio Reader Script Analysis.

All our readers have years of experience working for studios, production companies, agents, managers and contests. These readers are the gatekeepers of the industry and you will need to impress them with your writing to get to the decision makers. Click here to learn more about our readers.

The readers will provide 2-3 pages of detailed notes about the strengths and weaknesses of your screenplay, how to improve it, and potential ideas to fix key problems. All scripts are evaluated on the basis of six key criteria, including concept, characters, structure, marketability, tone, and craft. All scripts will be given an overall grade of Pass, Consider, or Recommend.

We offer the script analysis service for both feature film scripts and television scripts. We also offer proofreading, that comes without any analysis.

We offer a three reader bundle pack with a deep discount. You’ll save $100 with feature scripts and $88 with teleplays. That’s three reads of your feature screenplay for less than $67 and less than $55 per teleplay! You’re welcome to mix and match this offer with your different scripts. You can send one script to three different readers or you can send three different scripts to the same (or different) readers. It’s up to you. You’re not going to find high quality notes like this at this price anywhere.

Turnaround time is usually around one week, sometimes more but usually less.

Once you place your order we will email you with further directions and you will choose the reader(s) who you think is right for your project.

Example Notes: If you would like to see some actual example notes you can find them here: Example 1, Example 2. The example notes are from two different readers on the same horror screenplay. In addition, I recorded a conversation between myself and the screenwriter after he received the notes. Click here to view our conversation.

Bonus: If your screenplay gets a grade of “Recommend” from one of our readers you will receive a free producer’s email/fax blast, ($159 value) a service that has helped numerous writers sell and option screenplays as well as get paid writing assignments.

2nd Bonus: If your screenplay gets a grade of “Recommend” or “Consider” from one of our readers you will receive a free placement in the SYS Database for 1 year for that screenplay. The SYS Database is used daily by producers, agents, managers, and directors who are looking for material.
