Thanks for dropping by! Your script could well be just a few changes away from being hot property, and we’re here to help you get it there.
Whether you’ve written one screenplay or twenty, we can help you get an agent or manager or, if you already have one, secure your next writing assignment.
We take a huge amount of pride in helping screenwriters like you as best as we possibly can. Our script readers have been providing #1 rated script coverage services for writers just like you since 2011, and since then have built up a substantial client base, primarily through repeat customers and word-of-mouth.
We have a feeling this is because as well as having years of experience reading for the top agencies and studios around town, all of our readers are also working Hollywood screenwriters with produced credits.
What You’ll Get With Our Script Coverage Services
Rather than some of the vague coverage you may have purchased in the past, our script analysis gets right to the heart of what’s working in a screenplay, what’s not working, and most importantly how we can fix what’s not working.
We don’t just write things like “Give us more of a sense of who Jack is.” “Really ramp up the stakes in act two.” “Give each character a voice,” etc. and leave it at that. You need to know not only where the characterizations, plot or dialogue aren’t ringing true, or feel flat, but an action plan on how to fix them.
Improve Your Overall Writing Ability, Not Just One Script
We work with all kinds of writers, from aspiring to professional, but if you’re a new writer you may also need help with your overall writing, not just the dynamics of one particular script.
That’s why we encourage writers to take advantage of our free follow-up email service in order to answer any questions on your script as well as determine a path forward for your overall writing ability and career.
And with every coverage report we send back we include a couple of practical exercises taken straight from our ScriptHackr online course, depending on which area of your screenwriting we feel needs the most attention.
We Don’t Use Anonymous Script Readers
With many script consultancies you have no idea who actually does the reading. With us you’ll be able to see exactly who will be writing up the script notes, and even choose your preferred reader according to their genre expertise and your script’s genre.
Each of our script readers are working screenwriters who’ve sold scripts, as well as having years of experience reading for top Hollywood agencies and production companies.

A Deeper Look At Our Script Analysis
Our script coverage focuses on the most important aspects of the screenplay that need work, rather than spending the first paragraph of the report talking about the formatting or the title.
By first evaluating your script’s three-dimensional conflict between protagonist, antagonist and stakes character, we determine just how strong the overall core concept is.
From there we tackle the nuts and bolts of what’s working and what’s not working regarding the plot, theme, structure, scenes and dialogue.
Just like in our online course, ScriptHackr, our script coverage aims to de-mystify the process of screenwriting as much as possible, while steering clear of all the “fluff” found in most script coverage, books and courses.
Turnaround time for our regular screenplay coverage is usually between seven and ten days because our main priority is providing a superior quality service to any other script consultancy out there.
For our “Regular Script Coverage” package you’ll get 4+ pages of in-depth, actionable feedback rather than just one or two. For our “Deluxe Script Coverage” package you’ll get 12+ pages of script notes.
“Definitely will be my only resource for my future writing!
Notes were spot on and easy to understand to aide in my script’s development.”
— Derrick Vaughn, USA, aspiring screenwriter

Margin Notes ($395)
A reader will make comprehensive notes directly onto your script, giving a page-by-page reaction to the material. Comments are made on how the individual scenes are working, conflict, genre pay-offs, dialogue, characterizations, etc. plus writing style and formatting anomalies. Check out a Margin Notes Example
Line Edit ($375)
A script analyst will go through your entire screenplay making extensive line-by-line, scene, dialogue and description edits with strikethroughs and replacement words and phrases.

(Please note: this is NOT a “polish.” In this service we cut and rearrange, but do not extensively rewrite the existing material.) Check out a Line Edit Example.
Professional Proofread + Formatting Service ($195)
While a fantastic screenplay is not going to be rejected on the basis of a few typos or incorrect formatting, it’s best to avoid giving the reader any whiff of unprofessionalism. We go through your screenplay flagging up any grammatical, spelling and formatting errors, making sure it’s presentation is up to industry standard. Check out a Professional Proofread Example.

“THIS IS AWESOME, SUPER HELPFUL FEEDBACK
Hey guys, I’ve gone over your notes and now making notes for myself on the updates I should make. I want to thank you again for your thorough analysis.
This is exactly what I was hoping for. I’ve taken the story as far as I can and wanted to improve the emotional core of the story with the characters, which is essentially what most of your feedback and notes focus on.
Really appreciate the notes and I will take it from there. Also, I really appreciate that you’re available for follow up feedback which I think is crucial for any issues of clarity and further guidance.
And all of this is done in a timely manner which helps tremendously for expectations and deadlines any writer can appreciate. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.”
— Amar Rehal, screenwriter of The Maharaja
