Writers normally only get one shot at interesting a company or producer with a script so it’s essential that when the script is sent it’s as good as it can possibly be. It’s always good to get another ‘pair of eyes’ to look at your work, as sometimes someone else can spot a problem the writer may have missed.
Our script reading and appraisal service aims to match up writers with people from the industry whose comments and advice will hopefully guide the writer to produce a better rewrite. Our script readers are either university/college lecturers or professional writers with numerous writing credits and/or qualifications, several of our readers also read scripts for TV companies and theatres.
The length of the reader’s report will usually be 2-3 pages for a short script and 3-4 pages for a full length script. If you have selected our ‘in-depth’ script reading facility, a report will usually be approximately 6 pages in length. (Please bear in mind that script report sizes may vary as scripts differ tremendously in style and substance and some require more feedback than others).
