I started offering script consultation services for Features, Shorts and Adaptations because of the demand from my students and other individuals in need of screenwriting help. I’ll provide you with constructive feedback on its strengths and weaknesses, plus real and concrete ways on how to take your script to the next level.
Coverage is the process your script goes through once given to a company. Coverage consists of: Notes on your longline, A breakdown of the main characters, An in-depth review of the plot, structure, minor characters, writing, dialogue, pace and visual elements
Coaching – $49/hr
In our one-on-one coaching sessions, you’ll experience in-depth lessons on what the essentials are for your script(s). You don’t even need a complete script; coaching is great if you’re a writer who has many ideas and want to take their writing to the next level. After we decide on a set script or idea, we’ll work through your script – one act at a time.
Short Films – $99
1-2 pages of detailed critique of your short film. Critique notes include: Breakdown of character, dialogue and plot improvement notes.
Feature Films – $179
Critique for 90-120 pages of script coverage that includes- Summary, Concept, Plot Structure, Characterization, and Dialogue suggestions. An optional 30-minute Skype or phone session to walk through the analysis.
Adaptations – $299
Adapting a book is a very special process that includes coaching and consulting in a different form than creating an original screenplay. This includes coverage, 3 coaching sessions one hour long each and complete suggestions to improve any & all appropriate aspects. An optional Skype or phone session to walk through the analysis.
Any critiques and criticism I offer are not negative! I want you to let go of the seriousness associated with hard work and have fun. Coaching should be a fun experience that teaches you to let go of old tendencies and PLAY with your scriptwriting. After all: You don’t start playing piano like Tchaikovsky, you start at Mary Had a Little Lamb. Like any musician or fine artist, screenwriting is an art that takes practice and work.
