Before You Submit Your Script,
Find out How the Industry Professionals Will Respond…


In order to succeed in this business, you have to understand how industry execs think.  So we invite you to take advantage of our terrific Script Services, and learn straight from the pros how to develop and market your script!

ABOUT OUR JUDGES


The Judges for the PAGE Awards all have years of experience as professional script readers, story analysts, producers and development executives.  Their combined credits include most of the major studios, networks, production companies, agencies and management firms here in Hollywood, including Universal, Disney, Warner Bros, Paramount, CBS, NBC, ICM and CAA.

These are the industry gatekeepers.  They read and review hundreds of new scripts every year, and in their jobs at their individual companies they have the power to either send your screenplay up the ladder or send it to the recycling bin.

And now, they’ve agreed to go to work for you!

ABOUT OUR SERVICES


We’ve kept the cost of our Script Services extremely affordable.  So now, for much less than the price of those script consultants and gurus who charge $250-$750 or more, you can receive expert notes, insights, and feedback on your script from working industry professionals.

Plus, if you’d like more than one of our industry pros to review your screenplay, you’ll automatically receive a $10 discount off each additional set of notes.  Our Judges each work independently, and they will not see each other’s comments or exchange ideas about your script.  They will each evaluate your material from their own unique perspective.  So, if you request notes from more than one Judge, you can compare what they say and determine which comments and ideas are useful to you and which are not.

Our goal is to provide you with constructive, insightful feedback that will truly help advance your career.

Here are the services we offer:

JUDGE’S FEEDBACK: $129
The same great Feedback we offer in conjunction with the contest.  Your Judge will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your script, explain how he or she would score your script if you submitted it to the contest, tell you whether your script would receive a Recommend, Consider or Pass if you submitted it to his or her agency or production company, and offer suggestions and ideas designed to help you further develop and refine your script. (5-6 pages)

IN-DEPTH SCRIPT ANALYSIS: $199
A comprehensive assessment of your screenplay.  Your Judge will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your script, provide you with detailed examples and page notes, and offer suggestions and ideas designed to help you further develop the material.  In-Depth Analysis is designed for writers who have received Judge’s Feedback in the past and who now wish to receive additional notes from that same Judge, and for writers looking for professional help with their rewrite. (8-10 pages)

CONCEPT EVALUATION: $79
Notes on your treatment, outline, or story idea.  (This is not for completed screenplays.)  Your Judge will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your concept, evaluate your treatment or outline, offer suggestions and ideas on how best to develop your idea, and evaluate your script’s ultimate marketing potential.  Concept Evaluations are designed to help you discover any potential pitfalls and resolve problems before you sit down to write your screenplay. (2-3 pages)

SCRIPT SYNOPSIS: $149
One of our industry pros will read your screenplay, then create three optional loglines and write a detailed synopsis of your script (2-3 pages).  This is comparable to the synopsis you would receive in standard coverage from agencies and production companies.  You may need a synopsis for certain marketing purposes – for example, to promote your script online or in a proposal to raise funds for your film.

MARKETING PACKAGE: $179
One of our industry experts will read your screenplay, evaluate it from a marketing perspective, and create three optional loglines, a customized query letter, and a compelling one-page sales summary (one-sheet) for your script.  In addition, you’ll receive valuable information about who’s currently looking for material like yours, the potential market for your movie, any special challenges you may face in selling your script, and ideas on where you may want to submit it.

PLEASE NOTE:  The purpose of our Marketing Package is to create the professional materials you need to promote your script.  We do not send out query letters, post your script online, or solicit interest in your script for you.  If you’re looking for those services, we highly recommend our co-sponsors InkTip and TVWritersVault.  And if you’re specifically looking for a literary agent or manager, you’ll find a comprehensive list, including contact information, in the Hollywood Screenwriting Directory.

In addition, when we send you your notes, we will also send you the credentials of your Judge, so you can get a sense of who our Judges are and how their various studios, agencies and production companies might respond to your script.

HOW IT WORKS


When you fill out our order form, you’ll have the opportunity to select whichever service you wish, along with the number of Judges you’d like to review your work.

You’ll also have the opportunity to tell us if you have any special requests.  For example, if you received notes from one of our Judges in the past and you’d like that same Judge to review your latest draft, please let us know.  Or if you’d prefer a fresh perspective, let us know that as well.  We do our best to accommodate all requests, and if for any reason we’re unable to do so, we’ll let you know.

Your Script Notes or Marketing Package will be returned to you via email, usually within two to three weeks.

Hear it Straight from the Hollywood Insiders:
How to Write a Screenplay that Will Sell!


As a screenwriter, one of the most daunting tasks you face is submitting your work to the agents, producers, and production execs whose approval you need in order to get your movie made.  It can be an ego-bruising experience.

But what if you could get inside the minds of those Hollywood gatekeepers before you submit your script and learn how they make their decisions?

What if the industry pros who are on the front lines at the studios, networks, agencies and production companies, as well as here at the PAGE Awards – the people reviewing the scripts you submit – took you through their thought process and explained the criteria they use to evaluate your work?

What if they told you how to get a “Yes”?

That idea was the inspiration for our groundbreaking PAGE Awards eBook:

“The Insiders’ Guide to Screenwriting:
How Hollywood Evaluates Your Screenplay”


The Judges for the PAGE Awards all have years of experience evaluating scripts and participating in the acquisition, development and production process at major Hollywood studios, agencies and production companies.  Some of them are also professional screenwriters themselves!  (You’ll read each of the authors’ bios in the eBook.)

These working professionals are the eyes and ears of this industry.  They know the current trends, they know the marketplace, they know what makes for a winning screenplay, and most importantly, they know what separates an amateur from a pro.

And now, they’re sharing their secrets with you!

Each chapter of the eBook focuses on one specific aspect of screenwriting, based on the judging criteria used here at the PAGE Awards.  In each chapter, these industry pros discuss in depth how they use these criteria to evaluate scripts for both the PAGE Awards and the companies they work for.  They explain how each of these elements is key to a successful screenplay, they show how top screenwriters do it, and they offer a wealth of insights and ideas to help you elevate your career to the professional level.

Plus, along with your copy of The Insiders’ Guide to Screenwriting, as an extra bonus, we’ll also send you these three bonus gifts:

BONUS #1:  “Screenplay Format: The New Style”

Did you know there’s a brand new formatting style being used here in Hollywood?  We’re going to send you a sample of how it looks!  Many agents and managers encourage it, producers love it, and if you format your script the way the pros do, Hollywood execs will immediately assume you’re “in the know.”

BONUS #2:  PAGE Awards Scorecard Template

We’re going to send you the scorecard template used by our PAGE Awards Judges.  So, now you can be the Judge!  Print out copies of these scorecards, cut them into thirds (they’re set three to a page), and use them to evaluate your own work.  Or give them your classmates, fellow screenwriters, or members of your writing group, and use them to help evaluate each other’s scripts.

BONUS #3:  PAGE Judging Instructions

This is the 2-page “crib sheet” of scoring instructions we give to our Judges.  It explains the various things you should consider as you score the ten elements of a script: 1 (low) to 10 (high) for a total possible score of 100.  You’ll find the more you study the chapters of our eBook, the more scripts you read, and the more you hone your understanding of how to write a successful screenplay, the easier it will become to differentiate between what deserves a score of 2 and what deserves a 10!

Whether you’re prepping your screenplay to enter next year’s contest or getting ready to send your script out to the industry, this is the critical information you need to help move your script up the ladder.

Best of all, right now we’re making this entire package available to you for just $27!  And if you choose, for just $7 more, we’ll also send you a copy of:

“13 Screenwriting Misdemeanors: Don’t Get Caught!”


Based on his years of experience evaluating scripts for ABC, The Donners’ Company, and Kopelson Entertainment, PAGE Judge and LOGLINE editor John Evans has compiled a list of the 13 most common mistakes that get screenwriters in trouble, and in his funny, irreverent way, John lays it all out for you!  Are you unwittingly committing any of these “crimes”?  In Hollywood, ignorance of the law is no excuse.  So let John help you “straighten up” your script and avoid that dreaded recycling bin!

This insightful and comprehensive package of materials is one of the very best investments you will ever make in your screenwriting career.  Order your copy today and find out how to convince the Hollywood decision-makers to say “Yes!”
