SCREENPLAY COVERAGE

Screenplay coverage is an essential tool for screenwriters new and old. It isn't enough to ask your friends and actors you know to read your script.  A professionally crafted screenplay coverage service provides you with insights into the main components and details of the script from various levels.

One way to get a screenplay coverage is to enter a screenplay contest that provides a detailed coverage as part of the submission offer of the contest. It is best to submit to contests that do provide feedback. 

Our Script coverage summarizes and analyzes your script based on the same principles applied to book reviews plus other guidelines that apply only to screenplays. We use a base rubric for each parameter to explain our rating.

  • Genre - what is the genre of the screenplay, is there more than one genre?

  • Formatting - how well is the screenplay formatted? Does it use the Hollywood Standard?

  • Outline - Is there a clear outline with acts and turning points?

  • Character Arcs - How do characters change from beginning to end?

  • Premise - Loglines - what is this script about in one sentence, a three sentence paragraph, and a one-pager?

  • Plot Summary - Can we track the acts and turning points?

  • Target Audience -Who is going to wan to watch this film? why?

  • Turning Points - weak or strong?

  • Production Value - high - medium - low budget

  • Settings analysis - How do the settings contribute to tell the story?
