Following their comments, I’ll get back to work now and rewrite the parts that needed to be improved to make a solid and impressive final draft. Thank you guys for the help! Totally recommend for every screenwriter in doubt. It’s a review every writer needs and it’s totally worth the price.

I really enjoyed the 1hr call. Scriptreaderpro helped a lot and after my re-write, I plan on doing another 1 hr call. Think of it like a tennis coach – they’re there to tell you what you’re doing wrong. They have fresh, professional eyes. We as writers need that.

Does your script make the grade? If so, it could get passed on to our industry contacts.

There are no written notes with this service but if your chosen writer really likes your script, they may ask you if you’d like them to pass it on to their industry contacts.

Everything you’ll get with your
Script Consultancy Call.

• A 1-on-1 call for either half an hour or one hour with a pro screenwriter via Skype, Zoom, Apple FaceTime or the platform of your choice.

• Feedback on your feature script, TV script or synopsis. Brainstorming and practical suggestions on how to strengthen and develop your story and characters and get your script where it deserves to be.

• Industry connections. If our reader really likes your script we may ask you if you’d like them to pass it on to their manager, agent or other industry contacts. (Please note: There’s no written feedback or Ratings Grid with this service.)

• Free follow-up emails for the 1-hour package. If you purchase the 1-Hour Consultancy Call, you’ll be able to submit three follow-up questions to your reader, free of charge.

• Guaranteed five-star service. Our average client rating on Google and Facebook is 5/5 stars. You can read what other writers just like yourself say about our script coverage services on our Reviews page.

• Super-fast turnaround time. We strive to set up all calls as quickly as possible. If you order a 14-Day approx turnaround time, however, this doesn’t guarantee a set-up exactly on Day 14. It could be a day or two later, so if you need to set up the call before a specific date please choose a 3- or 7-Day Rush at checkout.


How the process works
step-by-step.

Ready to get a pro’s face-to-face feedback on your script? Get started by following the simple instructions below:

1. Choose either a 1/2-Hour or 1-Hour call. You’ll be transferred to a secure checkout form. Don’t worry, it’s all very quick and easy.

2. Choose turnaround time. Our standard turnaround time is approximately 14 days. If you need your call set up by a specific date, we recommend our 3- or 7-Day Rush service.

3. Make payment. When you’re ready to purchase you can do so via credit card, debit card, PayPal, ApplePay or Google Pay.

4. Upload document. Please attach your script, synopsis or TV bible as a PDF.

5. Choose preferred pro writer(s). You will have the option here to leave any note you may have for your pro too.

6. Hit send, kick back and relax. You’ll receive an email letting you know we’ve successfully received your work and to confirm your chosen turnaround time 🙂

Pick one of the options below and let’s get your script firing
on all cylinders!

FAQs.

We have two types of turnaround time available:

Standard 14 days (approximate). 

This means you will receive an email from us to set up your call roughly within two weeks. We cannot guarantee a return of your work exactly on Day 14—it could be a day or two later, so hang tight!

Rush.

If you order a 3- or 7-Day Rush service, you will hear back from us three or seven days later, starting from the day after purchase.

For example, if you purchase a 3-Day Rush at 4 pm on a Monday, Day #1 of the countdown will start on Tuesday as the first full day. So you can expect an email to set up the call no later than midnight Thursday.

Rush orders received after 5 pm PST will be processed the following morning and the turnaround countdown will start from that day.

For example, if you purchase a 3-Day Rush at 6 pm on a Monday, it’ll count as a Tuesday purchase and so Day #1 will be Wednesday and you’ll hear back from us no later than midnight Friday.

(All times are Pacific Standard Time.)

Here’s the 2-step plan to picking the pro of your choice:

(Important! Not all readers are available for all services. If your chosen reader isn’t listed, it means they’re unavailable for the service.)

1. If you haven’t already, check out our writers’ profiles on our About Us page. There you’ll find their mini-bios and genre specialties.

2. During checkout, you’ll be asked for your first and second choice. If your first choice isn’t available your script will go to your second choice. In the unlikely event your second choice isn’t available, we’ll contact you.

Please note: If you leave your second choice as “I don’t mind” we’ll send your script to who’s available and best suited to your script’s genre.

Every script that’s sent to us remains 100 percent the author’s copyright.

We will under no circumstances release, or let your script be viewed, by any third party without your prior consent. Not only that, but every idea we suggest or piece of feedback that you take on board and add to your script will be completely your own.

We also never accept royalties. We’re just here to help you make it as a screenwriter and all we ask is that you invite us to the premiere. 🙂

With that in mind, we don’t sign writers’ own NDAs.

We—and to be honest, 99 percent of people and companies out there—have zero interest in “stealing screenplays.” Managers, execs, producers, etc. will be interested in hiring you as a writer, not running off with one script.

And script consultancies like ourselves have no desire to do this either. We have our own careers and reputations to take care of and simply want to help you succeed too.

If you’re still worried, however, here’s the legal angle:

We recommend all screenwriters register their screenplays at the US copyright office and/or WGA West before sending their work out. It’s cheap, easy, and will protect you against any copyright infringement by law if it ever came to that.

Here’s a blog post on the subject you may find useful: How to Copyright a Script the Smart Way and Avoid These 5 Legal Pitfalls.

Our readers are super busy and so, unfortunately, are unable to examine extra materials, such as synopses, treatments, TV bibles, novels, or character breakdowns for context.

Ideally, your script should make sense and work as a stand-alone piece when you send it to us, just like in a real-world submission.

If there’s something super important you think the reader should know about the story, however, feel free to let them know on the form during checkout.

Or:

If you have a synopsis, treatment, TV bible or outline and would like your chosen pro to give feedback on too, you can purchase Synopsis/Treatment Coverage here.

For character breakdowns, research notes, photos, videos, etc. please contact us at submissions[at]scriptreaderpro.com and we will give you a quote.
