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, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Brothers, Disney, CBS, NBC, ICM and CAA. (To see who some of our Judges are, you can take a peek here.)
These are the industry gatekeepers. They read and review hundreds of new screenplays every year, and in their jobs at their individual companies they have the power to either advance your script to the next level – or send it straight to the recycling bin.
And now, they’ve agreed to go to work for you!
We’ve kept the cost of our Script Services extremely affordable. So now, for much less than the price of most screenwriting consultants and gurus (who often charge $250-$750 or more!), you can receive expert notes, insights and ideas from working industry professionals.
If you’d like more than one industry pro 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.
These are the various services we offer:
JUDGE’S FEEDBACK: $99
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. (4-5 pages)
IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS: $179
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 script. (2-3 pages)
SCRIPT SYNOPSIS: $129
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: $149
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 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.)
HOW IT WORKS
When you fill out our submission form, you’ll have the opportunity to select whichever service you wish, along with the number of Judges.
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 always 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 sent to you via email. Our turn-around time is currently averaging two to three weeks.
