SKU: Script Coverage Report


Our Film Script Coverage Report is a detailed report on feature-length film screenplays, which delivers 4+ pages of notes and feedback to help clients move onto the next draft. The report is second only to our Film Forensic Notes service in terms of popularity.

The service is most suited to projects either in the early stages of development (say at first or second draft stage) or right at the very end of the development process, when notes to help “tweak” the script are required, rather than proposing truly substantial changes. The report does not include a synopsis, and is instead composed of “pure notes” as our script consultant focusses exclusively on what you can do to improve your project and move forward to a point where it’s market-ready.

The harsh reality is that script coverage is forever: once you’ve submitted your script to an agent or producer a record of what they thought of your script will either be lodged in their hard drive (via coverage their assistant delivers, or their own notes), their brain(!) or both.

The biggest single mistake made by new and promising screenwriters is to submit scripts prematurely, assuming they’ll receive a second chance. In most cases, unless the script makes a very favourable impression, they won’t. Calls will remain unanswered, emails will be ignored and deleted, and no progress will be made.

That’s where script coverage by a bona fide script consultant comes in: we a) advise whether your script is good enough to be submitted for real, and b) offer, insight, analysis and advice on how to improve it.

Be sensible. Don’t rush script development. After all, good things come to those who wait…(and make the right first impression!)

    This has been my 5th report for this script. The feedback as always is excellent, not just constructive criticism, but also helpful suggestions on how to strengthen the story. Invaluable.

    I was really impressed with the coverage, it was intelligent, incisive and also extremely helpful, pointing out what was and wasn’t working, and in very constructive manner, so very helpful for the next draft. On top of that, the Talent Connector is a huge bonus. too.

    Just so impressed by the service given by Industrial Scripts. Really cine-literate reviewers who gave highly structured, intelligent analysis. I was able to vastly improve on my first draft by the advice I was given in the reports. I have no hesitation in recommending Industrial Scripts. I will definitely be using this professional organisation again. 5 stars.

    I was fairly impressed with the level of detail and precision in my report. The coverage analyst wrote well over seven pages of feedback, highlighting both the strengths of the projects and didn’t pull any punches when giving constructive advice on areas where I could improve. The thoughtful analysis gave me a fresh perspective on how I could provide more depth to the project, most specifically by elaborating on my protagonist. I’d recommend using Industrial Scripts coverage report service.

    What’s special about the Industrial Scripts team is that they always go ‘above and beyond’ when it comes to offering detailed and encouraging feedback on my work. This time was no exception and on following the reviewer’s advice I was able to significantly improve upon my first draft. Thank you.

Always concise and to-the-point, with pages of useful suggestions that greatly improved my screenplay from a number of different angles. These guys are the real deal and I look forward to using their services for my next and future projects.

    IS is the only analysis service I will trust with my work. Not only is the service on time, the notes provided challenge me to think and improve my work ten-fold, sometimes changing the gender of the main character can work in your favour, adding characters, and creating more tension and drama. Without the analysis I would have never considered such drastic action but it worked and I received an Honourable Mention. Thanks again IS.

    Since my script is a bit of a genre mashup with some pretty dry humor, I was a bit worried that the reader might not get it. Imagine my surprise when the report was extraordinarily accurate, citing strengths and uncovering weaknesses that I knew were there, but had trouble identifying. The report provided excellent feedback for the next draft. As all screenwriters claim, this draft is the best yet! Thank You!

    (Review first submitted in Nov)
    As a new screenwriter it’d taken me some time to get my genre crossing, clunky old loco from the constructor’s yard along the tracks to that station called First Draft. This is where the well advised put their labours of love in the sidings and let the network experts have a look. ‘First draft is it laddie? ‘said a knowing old hand,’ Best you go knock on that door there, Industrial Scripts, they’ll do a nuts and bolts job on you son, oh yes’.
    It’s ‘belly butterflies’ time, isn’t it? The big boys and girls at Industrial Scripts are going give you a damn good hiding. I waited weeks before I pressed the send button and started on my next writing mission, just so I could pretend to be a bit nonchalant about it. Fortified with faux nonchalance and lager – Send I did, and I was well advised. Well within their promised deadline I’ve received a 12-page Film Script Coverage Report. It’s all encompassing and very structured analysis. Characterisation, dialogue, sub text, everything from considerations around my chosen title to target marketplace. This really is a thorough workover.
    The reviewer is candid, plainly know what they’re talking about and don’t pull punches. Where the criticisms are made, and there are many, they’re explained and alternatives are suggested. There is an element of murder one’s darlings about this which is deflating. Plot holes and questionable character actions and motivations have all been plucked out for high lighting. There are some positives in this and the reviewer does give a little succour, but this report is in no way devoted to that. It’s 12 pages of rigorous fault finding and it’s not comfortable, it’s not supposed to be, is it? It is clever, it is considered and it’s cogent.
    Having taken me apart in quite the way they have, I was blown away to find that the reviewer graded with an Honourable Mention and that’s hugely encouraging. It’s going to take me some time to break this report down and deal with each point. This report has obviously taken quite some time to compile having had to absorb all that needs to be absorbed from 112 pages of era hopping script. If you feel that time devoted is a measure you want to use, then this is great value for money. I’ll mention that as it may have some relevance to you before you decide to submit your work.
    With the content of this analysis I can now trundle out of the sidings and aim at that station called Second Draft. I couldn’t do that without this professionally delivered drubbing from Industrial Scripts. Second draft will be going back to Industrial Scripts too, as will my next project. This is serious stuff from serious people who manifestly care about their art, their industry, the profession in which they operate. They’re going to be a vital part of my process now.
    I can only speak as a new screenwriter and you’ll find reviews here from far more established folk than me. Different strokes for different folks, right? If you’re where I am, stalling at first draft buffers, see those sidings, park it there and knock on the door marked Industrial Scripts. You might not like everything they’re going to tell you, but you won’t regret it if you want your train on the network because, as we all know, there’s plenty of trains and only inordinately faddy passengers.
    I have no hesitation in giving a 5 STAR RATING

    So far I think I have used Industrial Scripts for notes on all my scripts. The fact I keep coming back shows how good I think they are. The best notes service I’ve found. If they could just sort out their needlessly complex booking process they would be perfect – but don’t let that put you off, the service is an absolutely excellent one.

    Consistently excellent, insightful service, above and beyond other coverage services. The analysis is not the usual cookie-cutter nonsense of hitting certain marks at certain pages, as if the reviewer were reading from a screenplay manual. Rather, it understands the big picture, the emotional stakes, and keeping the characters honest and real. Highly recommended.

    The reviewers at Industrial Scripts usually do more than expected in every way, which is one of the reasons why I choose them. The other reason is that their criticisms are helpful and eloquently stated. This is unlike American script coverage, which is typically just misspelled curse words stained with ketchup.

    Seven constructive, coherent pages of feedback which have directly informed my second draft. The writer has taken the time to read the script properly and consider its potential rather than review by numbers. Opinions about what is and isn’t working are supported by examples.

    A very good service. The reader had a clear understanding of what I was trying to achieve and offered some decent constructive criticism which was very much tailored to the project, instead of much of the standard feedback that some other consultants offer which seems to follow a ridged ‘how to’ guide on screenwriting. Feedback was well considered and extremely insightful. I would recommend this service very highly.

    and overall it helped me rebuild my focus on the type of stories I want to be

    As an Academy Award winning producer writing my first screenplay, I chose Industrial Scripts because I wanted a completely unbiased, professional critique from the largest leading edge script consulting company. I wanted my script to be judged against the largest cross section of scripts competing for recognition in todays marketplace.

    This was my second time using the service for the same screenplay. With this coverage report, I was initially disappointed as I could tell from the first few sentences that my report had been written by a different person. The first report was written by someone who was very focused on character and they had done wonderful advice which I addressed and was hoping the same individual would receive my next draft and I would get feedback on how well I had implemented the feedback.
    My second review was written by someone more concerned with the lack of cinematic visuals/formatting conventions.
    Now that I have spent time with the second report and rewritten accordingly, I am now glad a second professional read my script. Although it did not elevate me above the same ‘honorable mention’ grade I received first time around, I feel my script is better for having had another set of expert eyes on it.

    Absolutely 5 star report. And to think I wasn’t really expecting much. The script consultant clearly knew their business, was articulate in their explanations and generous in their suggestions. The constructive criticism chimed with other people’s comments, as well as my own gut feelings. Because they offered suggestions of ways of dealing with the script’s weak points I felt confident as I set to the next draft. The abundance of the report (7 pages?) meant I had plenty to take in and structure my changes. IT wasn’t all criticism ( thank you for my ‘Consider’) and the comments and references to the material made me feel the script consultant ‘got’ my writing. I will definitely be submitting other work.

    Industrial Scripts give thorough and comprehensive notes. I found their feedback to be incredibly helpful and thoughtful. The readers are always very informed and knowledgable, providing valuable insight to the strengths and weaknesses of the story. I have used other less expensive sites, but the readers seemed to miss something, which made their feedback less credible. With Industrial Scripts I find all the notes and insight to be right on because they are so in touch with the story, seemingly knowing where the story is and what it could become. I can give nothing but rave reviews for this service and the quality of readers they employ.

    I had already reworked my script extensively so the feedback I got was less on structure and story and more on the scene description and character details, which was exactly what I wanted.

    I was completely satisfied with the time frame. I was also hugely impressed with the work put in by the consultant reader – he/she had a firm grasp of the tone, structure and genre of the story – he/she made (mostly) very insightful comments on the material… some of which I agreed with, some of which I didn’t. In short, it’s obvious that the consultant reader knows the demands of what’s expected of him/her, probably as a result of your superior training and/or his/her immersion in the discipline of script analysis. Whomever analysed my script is a thorough professional – I’m presuming they all are.

    Heavily indebted to Industrial Scripts for the review and feedback I received. There was an even balance between highlighting the good (in my case, plot and dialogue) and the negatives (clarifying actions and rules of thumb). Above all, what I found encouraging about the review is that the reader seemed to genuinely WANT to be engaged with the material. That’s always difficult when you have to review scripts of all standards, day in day out, but I felt that the reader gave me a fair shake, which resulted in an ‘Honorable Mention’. I would definitely recommend the service, which was on time and most importantly, CONSTRUCTIVE in its criticism. To be given a fair chance is all most writers ask for and if you want to take your script forward and progress with the craft, a service like this is invaluable. Thanks again!

    Really impressed by my coverage report from Industrial Scripts – it went into so much more detail than expected, and it was great to be given notes by someone who clearly knows their craft and has a passion for film. The turnaround time was even faster than anticipated, and it was really eye opening to read a different take on the story. Most importantly, however, it has encouraged me to continue with the script, which for me is worth 1000x the price! As a first time writer, with a first ever draft, to be taken seriously and given thoughtful, in-depth feedback was a real boost. There was some contradiction with what was advised in the notes, but overall I think the service is excellent. I will definitely be using Industrial Scripts again soon!

    Excellent service. You know when you get an IS review that it will offer you sound advice on moving forward with your next draft. You don’t always have to agree with every comment but you know they will always make you stand back and think about what you have written and ask: ‘Is this the best it could be?’

    Industrial Script’s consultant analysis is the best report I have received in all my six years of screenwriting. It highlights issues in a constructive way and equips you will all the tools needed for a stronger rewrite. I would highly recommend.

    Another excellent report, this time for a script in a genre that’s fairly new to me. Received the report earlier than expected, and with so many useful and very specific notes–from someone who has clearly spent a lot of time studying this genre. Could not be more pleased. Would recommend this service to anyone.

    Does exactly what it says on the tin. A full and comprehensive review of my script with useful and insightful feedback. I will definitely be back once I’ve made amends. It’s a strong recommend from me.

    After a solid month of trying to figure out which coverage company to go with I finally chose Industrial Scripts. I chose Industrial Scripts because they didn’t advertise the whole world, they have verified reviews, and their price-point seems fair to me.

    I was very happy with my grade (Honorable Mention), and I was very happy with the feedback as well. The feedback was everything I was hoping for. I could tell the reader read my entire script, and I could tell the reader knew what he/she was talking about. Overall: Very satisfied.

    While I’d like to include some negative experiences to make my review more credible, the truth is; I haven’t had any. If anything I’d like to see a more streamlined submission process, but I’m splitting hairs here.

    Great service, worth the money, going to use again with my next script.

    I love my report so much! Having never paid for script notes before, I was a little nervous, but I’d recommend this service to anyone. I’ve been a professional screenwriter in L.A. for 15 years and have never received such detailed, thoughtful or insightful notes from producers or executives (which may surprise no one). The report is so intelligent and well-written, helped to give me a good perspective on the project and the suggestions were perfect for this draft. Really thrilled, thank you!

    A good, honest assessment of the potential of the project. Also, there were several very sharp and poignant notes on how to improve the screenplay by mainly strengthening theme and characterization. Very useful.

    A great and insightful report which carefully highlighted problem areas that need further development, while also encouraging you in areas that do work, giving you the pep you need to conquer the next draft.

    Don’t always agree/get value from absolutely everything but on this one I certainly did. Really top notch report. It’s why I always come back!

    Interesting coverage, if slightly frustrating to read. The consultant seemed overly anxious to display their knowledge of different story models, and some of the advice was either hedged or was in direct contradiction to advice I’d received from other sources. But the report was detailed and extensive, and the consultant had clearly engaged with the material. Absolutely a report worth having, and I’ll use Industrial Scripts for coverage again – but not in isolation.

    An excellent service – the analyst provided a very constructive critique – identifying strengths and weaknesses and solutions re the latter.

    Very happy with my review and I incorporated the feedback. What’s interesting though is that I received very different feedback from a US script doctor based in Hollywood, so I think it’s good to get a second opinion as well. People read and interpret differently.

    I was extremely impressed with the quality of my report. The analyst completely understood the genre and many nuances of the script and had clearly read it thoroughly. The report very clearly highlighted the problems with the screenplay and why they thought it was a problem, but in a very professional and clear manner. I will most certainly be using this service again.

    My reviewer was obviously an extremely erudite person. I loved the reference to the ‘sexual frisson’ in my story. I’m using it in my pitch from now on!

    The report was returned within the stated time, offered good advice how to improve and was clear on what worked and what didn’t.

    Excellent and detailed coverage. Took the time to point out things that were working, and those that weren’t with specific examples. The consultant had an in-depth understanding of the genre and story, and took the time to point out specific examples in other films in that genre that worked well. S/he also managed to strike a very good balance between a bird’s eye view of the plot and scene/dialog level view of why it was or wasn’t working. All of this information was conveyed honestly and constructively without ever being dismissive or negative. And, it arrived one week ahead of schedule. Definitely the best experience I’ve had with script coverage.

    My report outlined the strengths (so I knew what was working) and took the time to detail the weaknesses and at times also suggest ways problems could be fixed. My analyst clearly read the script and took the time to dig into its heart to make it better. An impressive read, I must say.

    I’ve always found the Coverage Reports to be detailed and honest. All analysis is there to help you grow as a writer, and I can honestly say that these reports have helped improve all aspects of my writing.

    It’s so hard to find a good coverage service. In the past, I’ve received reports that do nothing but shoot down your script, no explanation – nothing?! You’re left confused and giving up writing feels like the only option. But, with Industrial Scripts, I was pleasantly surprised. Don’t get me wrong, they did find problems with my script, but I understood why these were problems and I can see a path forward. My script will be rewritten, and I will be getting another coverage report with this company.
