Script Advisor

Services and Fees - Script Consulting

Chances are that you have written a script, into which you have invested a lot of loving and often untiring effort and you’d like to see that effort rewarded by selling it to a film producer and, hopefully, see your vision on the big screen.  Even though it is true that it is not always easy to have your screenplay selected for purchase, it is also true that, if your script is well crafted, it stands the best chance to be seen by and recommended by those major players (film producers, film investors, etc.) who have the power to make that purchase and turn your creativity into a film reality. It is my aim as a script consultant / script advisor / story analyst /screenwriter to do all I can to help you get that very chance, to help you enhance your script to the level where you can proudly show it to any film studio, film producer, literary agent, literary manager, etc.


(beyond coverage for the new and seasoned writer)

You can go beyond the coverage level by receiving script notes, which is an even more detailed, penetrating, and expansive assessment of your screenplay that will assist you in your next draft.  This is where I use my experience as a story analyst / script consultant /script advisor and screenwriter to spot what adjustments concerning pace, tone, tension, structure, story arc, character development, dialogue, description/action, script formatting and any other elements that are necessary for your screenplay to be seriously considered for purchase.  (See sample.  See another sample)

(specific writing suggestions for the new and seasoned screenwriter)

If you want to receive specific screenwriting suggestions that include description/action and dialogue (which you are welcome to use and claim authorship of), your script can immediately take on that professional polish that agents and studios look for.  (See sample)

Services and Fees

Every Script Is Different

*Because your script, whether it be for a feature film, a short, teleplay, a sitcom, drama, comedy, etc., will have unique requirements that cover a wide spectrum of assistance (a polish all the way to an extensive rewrite), you can send me your script (in an e-mail attachment), informing me what kind of assistance you need on it.  I'll read your screenplay, then write back to you, letting you know what it requires and what my fee will be to provide that service.

My Basic Services and fees

PAGE-BY-PAGE SCRIPT NOTES  Comprehensive notes and specific suggestions that guide you towards your next draft.  (Basic fee is usually $600.)  


Four Levels of Assisted Screenplay Rewriting:

1. Formatting, description, editing, proofing
I move through your script and raise it to a studio-level, improving formatting, description, and proof and edit it, giving it a more professional look.
This will make it a much smoother, easier read that a producer could purchase in order to develop it.

2. Scene Work
Including the above service, while staying with the story as is, I  improve the scenes, including the dialogue, instilling them with more vitality, dramatic import, and make them more cinematic (as though the reader was seeing the movie in his imagination while reading through the script).

3. Adjusting story
Including both services above, I can help the script follow a screenplay structure by coming up with additional scenes and adjustments to the story (all according to your approval).  I already have some ideas on how to give it the necessary three-act structure, following the typical screenplay structure that is necessary. 

4. Extensive Rewrite
Including all the work above, I can, with your approval, deepen the storyline and the characters and extend and deepen the story so it will be a fully developed screenplay that a producer can buy and shoot without needing to develop further or do any rewriting.

Your screenplay formatted according to current standards.  (Basic fee is usually $500.)
