HERE’S WHAT WE CAN DO
FOR YOUR SCREENPLAY

Thanks for dropping by and checking out our script coverage services! Below you’ll find a few things that set us apart from your average script consultancy followed by a list of our services.

1. You can choose a working screenwriter. Your coverage will be written by a working screenwriter who has sold screenplays and had them produced, but who also works for us as a script doctor. And you get to choose one depending on your genre.

2. No fluff. Tired of paying for vague script coverages that leave you confused and deflated? At Script Reader Pro, we approach each project with the same aim: to tell you what’s working and give you a solid action plan to fix what’s not.

3. Industry buzz and high fives! Many of our wonderful clients have left a ton of 5 out of 5 star reviews on Google+ and Facebook. Our script coverage services have also been featured in Indiewire, Creative Screenwriting, Raindance and many other sites.

4. Industry connections. If you receive a “Recommend” rating on your script coverage it means our screenplay doctor really liked it and may be able to pass your screenplay on to their manager, agent or other industry contacts.

5. Post-script coverage follow-up. All of our script coverage services come with a FREE email follow-up service in which you can ask any questions you like about our script doctor’s feedback on your screenplay.

NEED HELP WITH OUR
SCRIPT COVERAGE SERVICES?

Check out some FAQs about all of our script coverage services and script doctor services below.

Question #1. Just what is script coverage?

Good question, because while we’ve been referring to our services as “script coverage” they’re actually more like “script notes.” Traditionally, script coverage is written by an intern, assistant or script reader at a production company, or for a manager or agent. They’re a basic one or two pages of feedback on a screenplay or teleplay so the producer, exec, manager or agent doesn’t have to read the script itself.

Script notes, on the other hand, are what an exec, script doctor or other industry pros give to writers in order to improve it. They’re usually much longer than one or two pages.

Some script consultancies, such as ours, offer a paid service mimicking this process in which a script doctor writes a substantial document full of story fixes, ideas and suggestions for the next draft. Hence the term “script doctor” rather than “script reader” which is often just an intern or assistant at a company.

We call our script notes “script coverage services” simply as it’s a more widely known term among aspiring writers.

Question #2. Okay, so what’s the difference between your “script coverage services/script notes” and “script doctor services?”

In the film industry, script doctor work usually involves a professional, high-end screenwriter being asked by a studio to rewrite another writer’s script. Most often this means fixing certain problem areas right before production, rather than the whole script.

While this term isn’t really used in the industry itself, we like to distinguish our regular script coverage services from script doctor work as the latter involves actually rewriting or polishing a writer’s screenplay.

Question #3. How much are your script coverage services and script doctor services?

You’ll find all our script coverage service prices and “Step by Step Instructions” on how to send us your work on each individual page listed above. Simply scroll down to the bottom of whichever service page you’re on to see the specific instructions on how to get started.

Our script doctor services are not listed by price as quotes vary according to the project. On each individual page, however, there’s a form to fill out and the option to let us know your budget.

Question #4. What’s the turnaround time on your script coverage services?

All of our services have a maximum turnaround time of 10 business days. If you purchase a Rush service you’ll get your notes back within 48 hours. Our script doctor services, however, such as our Script Rewrite, Script Polish and Screenplay Ghostwriting service, have longer turnaround times—usually between one and six months.

Question #5. How do I choose a reader according to my script’s genre?

At checkout, you’ll find a form in which you can let us know who you’d like to write your script coverage. (If you’re purchasing a script doctor service, the form is on the actual service page as there’s no checkout.) Head on over to our About Us page and you’ll find a list of all our script readers and their genre specialties.

Question #6. Why do aspiring screenwriters love you guys so much?

We’re a modest bunch here at Script Reader Pro, so maybe it’s best if you read some of the 5 out of 5 star reviews on Google+ and Facebook 🙂

Question #7. Can I see a script coverage example?

Sure thing. On each service page, you’ll find a link to a script coverage example which you can download. On this page, you’ll also find more information on what script coverage is and links where you download a script coverage example of each type of coverage out there.

Question #8. How can I get an agent? Can you guys get me one?

We recommend you read this post: How To Get A Screenwriting Agent: The Ultimate Guide. We may be able to hook you up with an agent, manager or producer, but we have to love your script. If you receive a “Recommend” rating from one of our script coverage services, we may ask if you’d like us to pass your screenplay on to the reader’s contacts (as long as it’s also a good fit.)
