ABOUT
SCRIPT READER PRO

We’re a screenplay consultancy based in the heart of Hollywood, California, who’ve been helping writers improve their craft since 2010.

OUR STORY

script consultancyHi, my name’s Alex and I’m the founder of Script Reader Pro.

Maybe like me you’ve received script coverage in the past and thought “What the heck? I just wasted 200 bucks on that?

“Never use camera angles.” “Try to make your protagonist more likable.” “Let the story breathe.” etc. etc. Notes like these were the reason I set up Script Reader Pro.

OUR MISSION

To demystify screenwriting. This means no vague script coverage full of cliches like “Let the story breathe”. Just an action plan on how you should tackle the next draft. And the same goes for our course and books which focus on industry insider  hacks designed to skyrocket your screenwriting ability.

To kick-start screenwriting careers. The best people to advise on screenplays and how to break into the industry are those who’ve already done it themselves. That’s why we only hire readers with representation who’ve sold scripts and had them produced.

To give screenwriters more choice. When I was looking for feedback on my screenplays, I wanted to know more about who was writing it than a couple of anonymous initials. At Script Reader Pro you get to choose a reader from our roster of working screenwriters.

Scott was a senior analyst at Script Pipeline for five years before switching to Script Reader Pro.

He also has years of experience as writers’ assistant on WGN’s drama Underground, assistant to writer Brent Forrester on the series Super Fun Night, and screenwriting instructor at UCLA and Northwestern University.

Shaina recently wrote a pilot entitled First Contact for Alcon Studios. She is currently developing another series with Endgame Entertainment.
