You’ll only get one shot at a first impression, and agents and producers have long memories and deep hard drives.

Hang on though, what is script coverage?

Script coverage is the process by which scripts are filtered, in Hollywood and other film and TV industries around the world.

Coverage originated out of an internal industry necessity – namely that the powers-that-be didn’t have enough time to read the scripts submitted to them. Out of this need to shortcut, then, script coverage was born.

Script coverage today takes various forms but it’s most commonly used for two purposes, by two different sets of people. On the one hand, executives, agents, managers and producers still use script coverage for what it is was originally intended – as a way to absorb a lot of information about a script, in a short period of time.

script coverage services

They can read a synopsis of a script, look at an evaluation of the script’s strengths and weaknesses, read an appraisal of its potential in the marketplace, and generally take a deep-dive without having to spend two hours reading the script themselves. In addition, script coverage is also used by writers, producers and those on the purely filmmaking side of the fence to make scripts better. As you can see from the Jake Wagner quote below, screenwriting and script development are such competitive fields that scripts get very few chances to impress.

Getting pro script coverage before showing your work to anyone in the industry is absolutely vital. So, in brief, script coverage is there to do three things: prevent extremely busy movers ‘n’ shakers from reading scripts that aren’t up to scratch; help writers and filmmakers improve by delivering feedback; and save writers from what we call “undercooked scripts”, and career self-sabotage.

That, in a nutshell, answers “what is script coverage?”

SC

Why, today, is script coverage so vital then?

Ergo…

To answer, let’s try a little equation…

There are more and more screenplays being written every year.

But the number of bona fide agents, managers, executives and producers hasn’t risen at the same pace.

There aren’t more (industry) eyes to read these extra scripts.

Ergo…

Industrial Scripts On Why Is Script Coverage So Vital

…managers and executives and producers have to be more ruthless with their time.

They have to read fewer pages of a script before either discarding it or reading on, they have to read more scripts generally (because there are more out there, and their whole career hinges on finding great scripts), and most importantly they can’t read the same writer twice, if he/she didn’t impress the first time.

Let’s see that in image form again…

Script Coverage: More Scripts Means Less Reading Time
jake wagner literary manager

We could sugar coat it, but that’s the rub.

That’s literally the blunt truth of it, direct from the horse-slash-lit manager’s mouth.

If you can hook or leverage a major agent or manager into reading in the first place (not easy), they’ll give your script 5-10 pages. If it hasn’t grabbed them by then, it’s don’t-call-us-we’ll-call-you time.

The stakes are higher for new writers than they were before, and whilst the range of ways to get discovered have widened, the number of bites at the cherry writers can have with key taste-makers has shortened.

You can’t hit ‘n’ hope in something this competitive…

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that Hollywood is more hungry for great scripts, writers and ideas than ever.

It really is. Amazon, Netflix and their ilk have changed the game. Leviathan hit shows like Game of ThronesStranger Things and all the others don’t write themselves.

It sounds churlish and reductive but it’s easy to forget that someone’s got to do it…these shows aren’t written by demi-Gods or Kryptonians.

They’re written by people who once-upon-a-time got “Pass” verdicts from contests and script consultancies like ours.

Lest we ever forget: someone just sits down in a room and makes these stories up.

It’s that simple…and that difficult…but it is do-able.

Deep, actionable script coverage can help you turn that “Pass“ project into a “Recommend“, can help you filter your great, life-changing ideas from the dead end-ers and save you from blowing a big chance with an agent or manager.

And if that $300-odd dollars you spent with us ends up ultimately unlocking a development deal…well…you might just look back on that money as the best you ever spent.

10 Ways Industrial Scripts 
Has The Edge

script analysis

The Deepest Analysis

Multiple specific page references and GWC (Guaranteed Word Count) reports (no double-spaced, padded-out nonsense) of honest, actionable script notes mean our script coverage stands apart. We support every argument, rather than offering sweeping generalisations. It’s instant rocket fuel for your project.

1,000+ Verifications

No other script company has been reviewed by clients as often as us and no other companies use Google-approved reviews sites . We’ve been reviewed almost 1,000 times across various platforms, verified as genuine by unique transaction ID. Click the image for more.

Industrial Scripts: Grid Scoring

Precise Grid Scoring

Our grids, so common among the script reports used by producers and agencies, let you know precisely where you stand in a crisp, visual way. 30 analysis scores, percentile scores and comparable films/shows are included in all our reports as standard. Download samples above.

From a WB Consultant

When you dig under the skin of many script companies, you’ll realise they were created by people who didn’t meaningfully progress in script development (Good in a Room and The Black List are two exceptions). By contrast we were founded by a Paramount, Warner Bros., Universal, Scott Free script consultant and Ealing executive.

Longevity and Trust

Script companies and consultants come…and they go. So often a script service will be thrown together as a career stop-gap: a way for the person in question to “make a few bucks” before they decide what they really want to do. As one of the world’s longest running script consultancies, you know we’re in it for the long haul.

Close Ties to Industry

In business since 2010, our industry connections run deep. From mega-producer Tim Bevan (right) to actor Tom Hiddleston through Oscar-winning producer Gareth Unwin and more, leading figures in film and TV trust Industrial Scripts to deliver great script coverage, and superior masterclasses.

Our Script Coverage Guarantees the following…

If you’ll forgive the Breaking Bad analogy, over almost 10 years we think we’ve cooked the best recipe for a crack script report. Without giving it all away, here are just some of the elements that are guaranteed as standard…

Close Textual Analysis

All our arguments are supported by close textual analysis. No sweeping generalisations.

No Lazy Notes

Industrial Scripts Script Coverage: Ultimate Screenwriting Online Training

If you book our deepest, most popular service – Film Forensic Notes (delivers 5,000+ words of analysis) – you’ll receive lifetime access to our ULTIMATE Screenwriting Course (RRP $600). The course consists of 5 modules, 26 incredibly detailed lessons, and you’ll write a full screenplay while completing it. As the course is online, you can take it from home, at your own pace.

When you book with other script consultants you’ll soon notice that while they promise “5 pages”, their notes are often formatted in such a way that the word count is actually quite low. We promise concrete word counts, with zero fluff, to deliver maximum value.

Those 1,000+ verified testimonials didn’t blow in on the wind, and none of the other script companies have them. We are heavily, heavily invested and have real “skin in the game” in terms of making sure you leave with genuinely actionable script coverage that can give your project the boost it needs.

We won’t promise to like your script, and if you’re after just praise and an email saying we’ll walk it in to Paramount, you’ve come to the wrong place (there’s plenty of outfits that’ll take your money and do that). But you can’t do this stuff on your own, and as outlined above, you may – genuinely – only get one shot to impress.

Script Coverage FAQs

Got further questions? We’d love to help you out. Also check out our dedicated FAQs page, here.

What is script coverage?

Script coverage is the process by which scripts are filtered, in Hollywood and other film and TV industries around the world.
Coverage originated out of an internal industry necessity – namely that the powers-that-be didn’t have enough time to read the scripts submitted to them. Out of this need to shortcut, then, script coverage was born. Script coverage today takes various forms but it’s most commonly used for two purposes, by two different sets of people. On the one hand, agentsmanagers and producers still use script coverage for what it is was originally intended – as a way to absorb a lot of information about a script, in a short period of time.

How much does script coverage cost?

How much script coverage costs is a good question, and the general rule of thumb is: pay peanuts, get monkeys. If the service costs less than around $100 – $150 for at least 2-3 pages of detailed notes, that should set your spidey senses tingling. There are a huge amount of “bargain bin” type script coverage services out there in the wild wild west (sorry, the world wide web), peddled by people so far from the epicentre of film and TV, they may as well be on the moon. Industrial Scripts’ script coverage services are fairly priced, and respect both the customer and the time, sweat and inspiration it takes to write great script notes.

How do you write a good script coverage?

Writing good script coverage is an art form in itself, and one that we’ve honed and perfected over more than a decade here at Industrial Scripts. The key is to

How long is script coverage?

The length of script coverage varies from company to company. Here at Industrial Scripts we pride ourselves on delivering the deepest script notes, with the highest guaranteed word counts. One trap many writers fall into is book coverage companies who guarantee page counts, not word counts. A common trick more dubious script consultants perform is to pad out their coverage, using large fonts, double-spacing the notes and generally over-delivering on the surface, but under-delivering in reality. You can view all the GWCs (Guaranteed Word Counts) for Industrial Scripts’ services in the chart above.

What is a script coverage sample?

A script coverage sample would typically be used either by a company to show their script consultants what format they want reports delivered in, or as a sample released by a reader to try and secure work. We have a while article dedicated to what script coverage samples look like here, or you can easily download script coverage samples of all Industrial Scripts services at the links above.

Do I need script coverage to sell a script or get an agent?

You absolutely do not. However, if you do hook an agent or producer’s attention, the script then has to deliver. That’s where we come in. We save you from submitting prematurely.

Do I really need script coverage to improve my script?

Again, no. We recommend all our clients get as much free/amateur feedback as possible before investing in a professional opinion. But we also strongly recommend not showing your script to anyone in the industry before you’ve had a pro verdict.

What happens if I don’t agree with the coverage?

The thing about script development is this – it’s endlessly subjective. Endlessly. Our script consultants are writers too, so they know how it feels to receive criticism of your work (however constructive). Hollywood screenwriter Stuart Hazeldine once said “a script note is only as good as you think it is”, and we’re with him 100%. Cherry pick the notes that work for you, and ignore the few that don’t (but always remember your goal is for your script to be bought and made – if our pro, 24/7 reader has this or that opinion about it, all logic dictates another industry reader will have the same response). Not agreeing is part of script coverage, so we can’t promise to concur with you on everything but if you feel we delivered a genuinely shoddy report, which didn’t support its points with legit examples from the text, and just wasn’t an impressive piece of coverage generally, we have a robust complaints system and will do everything we can to make it right.

How fast can I get my coverage?

We have 2 turnaround options:

1. Standard (14 days max)
2. Rush (7 days max)

Additional fees for Rush are displayed at checkout. The reason we don’t deliver reports within 72 hours as standard is a) we use in-demand, pro script consultants not interns kicking their heels b) a good script report is a process: it takes time to think deeply about the material, mull it over, even sleep on it. A great script report can’t just be “knocked out”. It takes time, care and thought.

How qualified are your script readers, and who are they?

As you might imagine we screen our readers very carefully indeed. On each individual job, the reader is the temporary custodian of the IS name, and working for us as a script reader is a project-to-project proposition. All our readers complete an extensive (sometimes months long) trial period, where he assess every aspect of their performance. Statistically only 1 out of every 200 people who apply to the company are invited to work for us. You can view hundreds of verified reviews about our coverage services here. We don’t reveal reader identities for a range of reasons, chief of which is that many are internal industry readers and wish to remain anonymous. For clarity and the avoidance of doubt you are hiring IS the company to assess your script.

Can I re-hire the same IS script reader I had before?

Yes you can, simply make a note of their unique IS alias the first time, and then re-select them when you come to upload your script the second time.

Phew! You are made of stern stuff, you reached the bottom of the page.

Thanks for reading!

So: seen enough to realise we wont let you down…?

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. The script was delivered before the expected turnaround and to an exceptional standard. The work is done not only by someone who knows what they’re talking about but by a reader who is straight to the point, gives precise notes for improvement and cares about their job. A great service!

  6. Very insightful, thorough and useful review. It really felt like the consultant understood what I was trying to achieve in the script and offered constructive solutions for improving this without shying away for criticism.

  7. Great notes. The reader really understood the subtext and what I was trying to achieve thematically, in a way other readers I sent it to didn’t. Will definitely use again.

  8. I would absolutely recommend this service. Every report is an education. It has been so important to get honest, constructive feedback whilst just starting out. The quality of feedback absolutely eclipses that of well meaning friends and family. Worth every penny to know where you are at. I am now an Overdrive member and will be submitting my work for analysis regularly.

  9. Film Forensic Notes have unquestionably improved my script. The reader’s report not only highlighted flaws but also suggested how they could be addressed. But more importantly, the notes also dug deep into the themes and encouraged me to develop some aspects I had been unaware of.

  11. A phenomenal and well-thought out review of my pilot, the concept, its strengths and its weaknesses. The reviewer saw things and thought of things that I didn’t even see that I later folded into not only my script but the series bible. The reviewer, obviously much brighter and more eloquent than I, took what I believed was an important and vibrant story and elevated it. Truly outstanding guidance beyond the praise. Of all the coverage I’ve received – this is the one I wish I could send to producers, managers, and agents.

  12. This is the second time I’ve used the Industrial Scripts film coverage service and I continue to get sound, constructive feedback that helps each draft get that little better.

    Reply
  13. I was hugely impressed with the level of detail in the report, the effort taken to really understand the overall themes, and the level of insight into the big picture of the full story and the small details of each episode. I found both the highlighting of strengths very encouraging and the descriptions of weaknesses useful with very insightful suggestions for improvement.

    I will definitely act on most of the suggested ideas for improvement and will be highly likely to resubmit a new draft, especially to the same consultant.
    In summary, the analysis greatly exceeded my expectations, and was great value for money. Many thanks to the analyst for such a considered analysis. First rate.

  14. These notes were excellent and so helpful in informing my recent rewrite. The reader truly got under the skin of some structural issues I needed to address (but had been a bit too close to see clearly for myself) and identified where there were opportunities in the script to expand on what I had written to develop much greater depth for my characters. The assessment was fair and I also appreciated that it wasn’t all critical, that there was praise there too – like the best teacher it combined constructive criticism with encouragement.

    Reply
  15. 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.

This time was no exception and on following the reviewer’s advice I was able to significantly improve upon my first draft. Thank you.

    Your reviews alway reveal what I’ve missed or point out another way to look at a scene or character. To me, this insight is priceless.

  18. I happened upon Industrial Scripts website last year and I’m so happy I did. The quality of their Film Coverage Reports on my last screenplay has been nothing short of spectacular. 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.

  19. A fantastic service for screenwriters who need a non-biased opinion on their work. Feedback to my script was on time, thorough and gave me food for thought in terms of structure, character and story. I will use this service again and again as it offers a trusted critical voice.

  20. Another constructive coverage report which explained the reviewer’s perspective on what is working and what needs attention. After receiving feedback from industrial scripts I have never gotten that feeling that the reading has been rushed.

  21. This is the first time I’ve used an Industrial Scripts coverage service and I found it extremely helpful. The feedback was delivered ahead of schedule and was thorough, insightful and encouraging. The reader seemed to completely ‘get’ what I was going for with my concept, which was hugely validating. The suggestions for improvement were smart and very useful in strengthening the script. Highly recommend!

  23. 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.

  25. 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!

    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

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. The report and associated advice from Industrial Scripts was exceptionally detailed and nuanced. I felt that the consultant had taken the time to understand the story and characters, and tailored their comments accordingly, making the service bespoke and extremely useful. They point out the elements that others won’t or can’t.

  31. Exceptional quality. This is the development department you need without having to staff the thing yourself. Insightful analysis that cuts straight to the heart of your project strengths and weaknesses from astute individuals whose passion for the art shines through in their work. You will not go wrong by these people.

  32. 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.
    Use Industrial Scripts.

  35. While I work with a writing partner, it is still quite a lonely game. Of course, that is part of its strange appeal, creating worlds and the people in them from nothing. The reports we have had from Industrial Scripts have proven a real boost to our work. The feedback has been generous, expert and encouraging. The clear sense, from our last report in particular, that the reader is engaged by our work has also been a great boost and motivator. The prompt, in-depth and personable feedback is second to none. Though the specification says 4+ pages of commentary, we received nine detailed, constructive, and very relevant pages that helped us see the wood for the trees. It has massively sped up our creative learning curve as well, giving us stimuli to advance our narrative arcs. Any issue raised was laid out professionally and factually, and the suggestions offered were very generous in length, all to enhance the project’s quality. We could not recommend this service more if we tried.

    Reply
  36. 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.

    Reply
  37. Absolutely great service. It’s not the first time I used the service, and just as before everything was done on time, and the analysis was spot on in terms of exactly what the script needed to be better- in a very intuitive way. I’ve used other script services, and this is easily the best.

    Reply
  38. A good review which highlighted a way I could tweak the pilot to make it fly even better, which is very useful. What was particularly important though was feedback that really needed to address regarding the direction of the outline for the rest of the series. This is very timely and has changed my approach to the series. The reviewer was very complimentary about the opening of the pilot, and the way in which the script introduces and builds the world. This was gratifying because this is probably the most important aspect of a SciFi series. Thanks very much.

    Reply
  39. 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.

  40. I LOVE Industrial Script’s reports! They’re always absolutely on point and I never even consider getting into production if I haven’t received at least an Honourable Mention.

  41. My script analysis arrived early and was more detailed than I expected. (It was a resubmission of a script I’d had reviewed before). Considering I’d made all the changes suggested in the first review, I imagined this second report would be skimpy. Not at all. The second reviewer was just as thorough and pointed out deeper issues that needed work. He/she managed to point out the script’s weaknesses in a supportive and constructive way that I really appreciated.

    Reply
  42. Having receiving an impressively detailed and insightful Film Script Coverage Report, we opted for the Dry Run Report once we implemented the recommended changes. The script went from a Low Consider (Honourable Mention) to a Consider. Without the comments from the Coverage Report I don’t think we would have got there. The Dry Run Report was truly an “acid test”, and upon reading it felt like we had an insight into the inner workings of a production company. A great way to tell if your script is ready to be submitted to the industry. Highly recommend both of these Industrial Script services. Best we’ve come across, by a mile.

    Reply
  43. I was a complete newbie to script writing and sent my script to IS with no idea what to expect – either of the analysis or of how the script was doing. The report came back quickly and I was really impressed by how much thought had clearly gone into the feedback. It highlighted the good parts and explained what wasn’t working with the weaker elements. The feedback also kept a close eye on how commercially viable the script could be. Highly recommended and I’ve used IS since.

  44. Industrial Scripts offered spot-on, insightful, thoughtful notes on my script — after using several other services, I was blown away by the level of precision and care taken by my Industrial Scripts reader. It was as if a trusted friend or mentor was reading my script — somebody truly invested in my success, and not just trying to make a buck. I highly recommend Industrial Scripts to anyone looking to improve their work.

    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. I can say that the two script coverage reports I received were excellent, professional and extraordinarily instrumental in helping me achieve my script’s potential. Industrial Scripts service is a must for all serious emerging screenwriters.

  67. 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.

    Reply
  68. This was an extremely thorough review. That said, I was disappointed that the reader made an assumption about a relationship in the script and proceeded to base much of the feedback on that…. ie. “The mother/daughter relationship is left unresolved.”
    He/She was the only person out of seven educated readers that misunderstood the relationship. It was hard to take him/her seriously after that.

    Reply
  69. 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.

  73. 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.

  74. 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. The reader not only highlighted areas for improvement but offered some excellent suggestions, many of which I have incorporated into my latest draft. Constructive feedback, greatly appreciated!

  75. 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.

  85. 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!

  86. This clear cut critique enabled me to see flaws in my script that I could not see on my own.

  105. 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.

  106. Once again a very useful and informative report from Industrial Scripts. Their script coverage reports are developmentally invaluable.

  107. These guys really know their stuff! Highly informed and insightful analysis. Will certainly be using them again for future projects.

  108. 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.

  109. The report was early delivered and extensive.
    Attending to the reader’s clear experience, insight, resourcefulness, and the true effort put into addressing the script’s strengths and weaknesses, from the story and general structure to the smallest of details, the value for money is truly excellent.

  110. Industrial scripts provide a great service – couldn’t be happier. The feedback is concise and packed with very useful analysis, which hits the right tone between industry expertise and how the work strikes the reader as an individual – professional feedback and audience response in one! The report covers the very important macro analysis while also keeping an eye on any problems and details that might have been overlooked. For me, I am in no doubt that this is money well spent. I would heartily recommend.

  111. 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.

  112. It’s always good when a script reader absolutely GETS your idea, what’s it about and what you’re trying to achieve. Time after time, the feedback from Industrial Scripts has always been top notch; the reader has taken a lot of time to not only analyse story, structure and character but what it is you’re about as a writer – your ‘voice’ as it were. Excellent analysis which always has an encouraging spin and Industrial Scripts connections to the industry make this a worthwhile purchase every time. I will continue to use this service for all of my script ideas.

  113. 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.

  114. 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!

  115. The TV comedy script analysis highlighted problems which lay hidden to us writers, it emphasised the need for additional character development in the story and provided insight for future drafts. The scope of the report covered a breadth of industry aspects, from plot pacing to marketability each note was backed by at least one citation lifted directly out of the pages of the script. The reviewers possessed an in-depth understanding of genre and structure alike, to the degree of which they were able to reference the same shows we use as precedents for the concept in our pitch. This is a great service which I have and will continue to recommend.

  116. 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.

    Reply
  117. I found the report to be extremely helpful. It broke down as a one page summary with a further three pages of detailed, practical notes. I have recommended this service to others already.

  118. 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.

  119. 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!

  120. The service was extremely punctual. It was very interesting reading a summary of the script by an experienced reader, and the advice I received was balanced and contained lots of useful points. Thank you!

    Reply
  121. 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.

  122. This course taught me so much about screenwriting. I am now looking towards developing and showcasing my talent as a great writer with a certification from Industrial Scripts. Thanks. I will recommend your services for those looking to improve their skills.

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

    Reply
  124. 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.

    Reply
  125. This was the second script I submitted to Industrial Scripts and this time I opted for the 14 day service. The report arrived, as expected, bang on time and just like with the first report it was clear and extremely value added, with useful feedback, encouragement and tips to improve the script. Given my experiences with Industrial Scripts I would have no hesitation in using them again, or in recommending their services.

    Reply
  126. 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.

  127. This was an excellent analysis provided that enabled me to improve the overall quality of my script. It provided a thorough analysis touching on many important points and themes to my script. The analysis was constructive, direct, and exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely recommend this to any new writer.

  128. 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!

  129. I would highly recommend the Film Forensic Notes service to all serious screenwriters. I received excellent feedback and suggestions which I feel will greatly improve my script.

  130. Industrial Scripts never fail to disappoint. Having received multiple TV Drama feedbacks for the same project (in different incarnations and stages), I can honestly say that with every report received I improve upon my work, positively develop my project and develop myself, not only in my technical writing skills but also with my imagination – which you can’t put a price on. Every time I read back a report I feel more confident in myself, especially compared to when I first started corresponding with the respective analyser’s. Every time I pen a new draft I know, for a myriad of reasons, it is ultimately better then the last.

    I would urge any writer to dive in and try it. I know first hand how hard it is to get industry people to read and analyse a script, as well as the danger of getting the right people to read your script too early, so to get anonymous and frank detail is something I personally really need at this stage of my writing life and something I save my pennies for.

    Suffice to say I will continue to use their services in the future.

  132. My experience with Industrial Scripts was professional, efficient and valuable.

    My report was delivered on time and I really the felt the reader invested the necessary time in the project to truly get to the core of my script.

    The feedback was all extremely helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to others.

  133. 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.

  134. The TV pilot feedback report arrived on time and was detailed and insightful, helping me to revise the draft further, with confidence that I was heading in the right direction.

  135. It’s difficult an emerging writer to find a working professional willing to read your work and give you detailed feedback on what they think; that is, unless you’re willing to pay for their time. With Industrial Scripts you get your money’s worth. The coverage arrives in good time (often early) and it’s detailed in its feedback. In addition to this I got an insight into the production and distribution considerations that a producer might have — incredibly valuable if you’re looking to do meetings and wondering what kind of questions you might get thrown at you.

  136. I received very detailed and helpful feedback in a timely manner. I wholeheartedly recommend this service.

  137. I couldn’t be happier with the TV comedy script analysis. I received a detailed report that went from macro to micro — how the story worked as a whole down to specific details (with page citations!) about bits, gags, and jokes that I’ve found to be quite helpful. I could get a friend or any schmuck off the street to tell me that my script is good or bad, but to give a detailed critical analysis with notes and suggestions (… with page citations!) about how to improve? I give this service a five-star rating, I’ll definitely be using it again, and I’ve already recommended it to a number of people. Thank you!

  138. The tutor’s knowledge, enthusiasm, and ability to plough through a huge volume of complex material in a relatively short space of time (without feeling like anything was skipped) made this course superb. I definitely felt like I was being taught by someone with great knowledge of the industry and the craft, but also someone who was a very good trainer. Whilst there isn’t much time for interactivity or group contribution, this isn’t a bad thing as it’s a one day course where you come to learn not share. Whilst the focus is on writing for UK film, the principles of act structure and storytelling are universal. Totally recommend for anyone considering getting into screenwriting.

  139. The course (30 May 15) leader was very informative, knowledgeable, funny, eloquent and still passionate about film. Could not ask for anything more.

  140. 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.

  141. We received a very good and detailed report which highlighted our problems and offered advice on how to proceed with further development.

  142. Excellent, detailed, actionable and helpful notes. The consultant brought to bear a wide range of critical lenses through which the view the work. Both praise and critical comments were backed up with specific examples from the script.

  145. Fantastic course! I found it so helpful and came away with a lot of clear concise information! I’d highly recommend this course to anyone serious about writing a screenplay. I’m halfway through mine already and wouldn’t have managed it without this course!

  146. 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.

  147. Unquestionably one of our services which delivers the most value-for-money, this highly affordable consultation can save you huge man-hours. The bottom line is that the vast majority of writers have too many ideas, and not enough time, which then puts considerable pressure on them to choose the right ones – which sometimes they do…and sometimes they don’t. Our “Which Logline?” service will inform you, in succinct terms, which of your ideas we feel merits all your time, energy and effort, and which don’t. Help us, help you not waste your time!

  148. Ah, the TV or Film Treatment. So mysterious, so vague. What is the correct length? What is the correct style? Is there an industry standard? Time spent honing treatments, in our experience, is hugely valuable during the script development process. Indeed, many believe the true test of an idea is whether it can be told effectively over 10 pages of prose. If you start writing your treatment or series outline, and run out of gas early on, it might just be that the idea isn’t worth pursuing in the 1st place. But if it does hold up, well, then this service is the one for you…

  149. “I’m funny how? Like a clown? Like I amuse you?” Ah, comedy, perhaps the hardest of all the myriad genres out there. But, on the flip side, the easiest to break in to – if you really are funny. And whilst it’s the most subjective of genres (one person’s LOL moment is another’s head-scratcher), we back ourselves to be able to spot true comedy chops when we read it. So, if you’re developing comedy for TV, this is the report for you…

  150. One of our most popular services, our TV Drama Analysis is perfect for those developing a drama for TV, be it a 4-parter, one-off, or returning series. The so-called “Golden Age” of television is currently upon us, and it’s unquestionably where all the best writing is to be found currently. So, if you’re developing a drama, send it our way first to find out where you’re at…

  151. It always strikes us as crazy that people will spend hundreds – and in many cases thousands – of pounds on shooting their short script, but won’t spend any money on the most important factor in its success or failure: the script! Crazy. This service delivers 2+ pages of detailed analysis on your short script, and may well turn out to be the most valuable £70 you spend during the course of the whole project…

  152. One of the first services we launched way back in 2010, and still one of the best. Our Idea Screening Service is arguably our most valuable offering, and at just £30, our most cost-efficient, too. Why? The volume of time, energy and emotional effort required to write a market-ready screenplay that actually has a credible shot at impressing the powers-that-be is considerable. With such an investment on the line then, doesn’t it make sense to road-test the project’s foundations? With this service we steer writers’ energies into the right projects, not the wrong ones…

  153. Our Film Forensic Notes is statistically our most popular product over a 4 year period. The report examines the script in minute detail, and we’ve often seen reports of this type run up to 20+ pages of notes. So if you’re after detail, this is definitely the report for you…

  154. Our so-called “acid test” report is not for the faint-hearted, and offers a rare peak into a world the writer is normally excluded from: the internal coverage system. We’ll assess your script precisely as if it had come to us from a major production company, and as if you aren’t going to see it. It’s perfect for those with quite advanced scripts, who want to know whether they’re ready to submit for real or not…

  155. We have delivered hundreds and hundreds of Film Coverage Reports in the last 4 years. It’s our 2nd most popular service, after Detailed Development Notes, and delivers more than 5 pages of analysis on film scripts at all stages of development.
