3 Simple (But True) Facts:
- Raising finance is easy for a producer while finding a good script isn't.
- Producers use people like me to sort the few good scripts from the many bad ones.
- Even minor flaws that are otherwise easily missed are enough to get a script rejected.
Want to avoid the silly mistakes that ruin your chances? Want to write one of the much sought after "good scripts"? To do that you need to write an interesting, non-formulaic script that has engaging characters. You also need to walk a fine line between writing something that feels fresh, and writing something that is too different to be marketable.
To achieve that balance, script services that provide top quality feedback can be an essential benefit. Welcome. You're in the right place.
