Before You Submit Your Script,
Find Out How the Industry Professionals Will Respond…
n 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 who evaluate scripts 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, agencies, production companies and management firms here in Hollywood, including places like Universal Studios, Disney, Warner Bros, Paramount, CBS, NBC, WME, and CAA.
These are the industry gatekeepers. In their jobs at their various studios, agencies, and production companies, they have the power to either send your script straight up the ladder or send it straight to the recycling bin.
And now, they’ve agreed to go to work for you!
ABOUT OUR SERVICES
You can read more about the various development and marketing services we offer below.
We’ve kept the cost of these services as low as possible, so now, for much less than the prices most screenwriting “gurus” charge, you can receive expert notes, insights, and feedback on your script from working industry professionals. Our goal is to provide you with thoughtful, constructive input that will truly help advance your career!
This is the same great Feedback we offer our contestants each year. 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 screenplay would receive a Recommend, Consider or Pass if you submitted it to his or her studio, agency or production company, and offer suggestions and ideas designed to help you further develop and refine your script. (6-7 pages)
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 your material. (8-10 pages)
Notes on your treatment, outline, or story idea. (This is not for completed screenplays.) Your Judge will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your treatment or outline, offer suggestions on how best to develop your concept, and evaluate the marketing potential of your story idea. 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)
One of our industry pros will read your screenplay, then create three optional loglines and write a detailed synopsis of your script. 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 for a proposal to raise funds for your film.
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 project, any special challenges you may face, and ideas on where you may want to submit your script.
If you’re in need of both a Marketing Package and a Synopsis for your script, you can order both of these services at this special reduced price.
The purpose of our Marketing Packages is to create the professional materials you need to promote your script. We do not send out query letters or pitch your script for you. If you’d like to post your screenplay for industry consideration, please check out the terrific services offered by our co-sponsors InkTip
and Filmarket Hub
. And if you’re specifically looking for an agent or manager, we highly recommend the programs offered by Roadmap Writers
HOW IT WORKS
When you fill out the order form below, you’ll have the opportunity to select the service you wish and tell us how many sets of notes you’d like to receive. Our Judges all 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 of their thoughts and ideas are most useful to you. Plus, for each additional set of notes, we’ll give you a $10 discount!
When you place your order, 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, just 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 inform you right away.
Our Judges are currently busy reviewing all the entries in our 2021 contest and are not able to take on any additional work at the moment. We will once again be accepting requests for Script Services in late July.
In the meantime, keep writing, and thank you so much for your patience!
