Searching Los Angeles For Script Reader Jobs?
If you’ve been wondering how to become a script reader and spent the past six months trawling Craigslist for “script reader jobs los angeles” or “script reader jobs nyc” your search may finally be over…
——— We’re not currently hiring. ———
When We’re Hiring Script Readers / Script Consultants We Look For…
- People With Some Form Of Screenwriting Success. We only employ people who have written or co-written screenplays that have then been sold to a major or minor studio, made into movies, placed highly in top screenwriting contests, or secured paid writing assignments.
- People With Experience. Alongside some form of screenwriting credits, we’re looking for people with experience writing script coverage for an agency, studio or contest for example. You don’t have to have been churning our coverage reports form CAA for ten years, but some for of experience is definitely preferable, even if it’s only six months.
- A Smart Script Consultant. This means we’re looking for people who not only have an extensive knowledge of screenwriting, but an ability to get to the heart of a script’s problem and offer great ideas on how to fix it. If, in your previous script reading jobs, you’ve spent much of the report saying what’s wrong but offering no real solutions, then this position is not for you. Similarly, we’re not looking for script readers who spend just as much time on formatting, page count and title, as story, theme and characters.
- People Based In Los Angeles. (Or at least New York or Austin.) This one isn’t as important as the others, but let’s just say if you live in LA you will have an advantage over someone who lives in Wisconsin. Or Belgium.
