#2. Most Popular – Film Coverage Script Report – £124.99 (no hidden fees!)

Book Now Coverage Script Report  approx $201 USD / $190 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

2nd only to our Detailed Development Notes in popularity, this report on feature-length scripts consists of 4+ pages of notes and script analysis to help the writer move on to his or her next draft. This service is probably most suited to writers either in the early stages of development (say at 1st draft stage) or nearer the end of the development process, when notes to help “tweak” the script are required, rather than offering substantial changes. VIEW A SAMPLE REPORT

#3. Most Popular - Film Dry-Run Script Report - £124.99 (no hidden fees!)

  approx $201 USD / $190 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

This report mirrors precisely the process involved when your script is submitted to one of the major film companies. Your script will be assessed in the same way as scripts sent to us from Paramount Pictures, or BBC Films, or another top company. This report consists of a 1-page synopsis, and a page of comments on the project. The report also contains a check box common in the report templates of top companies where the script’s predicted success or failure in various key areas is assessed. The tone and style of this report is not specifically tailored towards improving future drafts, and instead offers writers an acid test service, to gauge whether their script is ready to be submitted for real. Please note these kind of reports are never typically sent to the writer, and are instead only used internally, between an executive, producer and script reader. If you are seeking a report to help you develop your project further please select the Coverage Report service, above, instead. VIEW A SAMPLE REPORT

#4. Most Popular - TV Script Analysis - £99.99 (no hidden fees!)

Service Eligible for Talent ConnectorSimilar to our Coverage Report service (see below), this analysis (of scripts up to 60 pages) consists of 3+ pages of notes and feedback to help the writer move on to the next draft of his or her TV project. If writers or producers wish to submit other TV materials (such as a series outline or bible), then this fee is by negotiation. Please contact us with your requirements.

Gary Moore Screenwriting Quotation

Our 15 script development services in full:

1. Project Screening Service – £29.99 (no hidden fees)

Book Now Project Screening service  approx $48 USD / $46 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

“Should I spend 6…12…18 months of my life developing this project?” is a question which haunts many screenwriters, who invariably have more ideas for films & TV shows than they do man-hours to develop them. “The premise is inherently flawed” is an equally familiar malaise from the other side of the fence, in the offices of development executives and agents, who are often baffled by writers’ project choices. This affordable service aims to help screenwriters channel their energies into the right projects, rather than writing themselves to a dead end. Writers submit a 25-word logline and a 1-page synopsis (including all pertinent story beats), and then receive a concise (up to 100 words) verdict assessing whether the basic story merits the vast amount of energy and time creating a script requires. We also offer a “4 for the price of 3″ bulk booking discount – just book 3 using the link above and get one free by submitting 4 pitches for analysis!

2. Logline Selection Service - £39.99 (no hidden fees!)

Book Logline Selection Service  approx $64 USD / $60 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

Similar to the bulk Project Screening service above, here writers submit 10 loglines (without synopses), and Industrial Scripts will put them in order of excellence, encouraging writers to channel their efforts into promising ideas rather than, as above, wasting time and energy writing themselves to a dead end. This service also includes an overview (up to 250 words) on why particular scripts merit more attention than others.

3. Detailed Project Screening Service - £39.99 (no hidden fees!)

Book Now Detailed Project Screening Service  approx $64 USD / $60 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

Similar to Service 1 above, this report provides more detailed feedback (up to 400 words), on a more extensive pitch (up to 2 pages), but the basic idea remains the same – to help the screenwriter separate the wheat from the chaff at an early stage.

4. Telephone Report – £89.99 (no hidden fees!)

Book Now Telephone Report  approx $144 USD / $137 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

With this service, we read your feature script in full and then call you to deliver headline comments on your script. Also available as a same day service for writers wanting immediate script analysis, this offers a highly affordable way to receive feedback on your script. Please note that due to the low cost of this service call-times do not extend beyond 30 minutes, and the onus rests with the screenwriter to prepare specific questions or queries for the script editor in advance. If you require our same day Telephone Report please contact us.

5. Detailed Development Notes on Shorts – £64.99 (no hidden fees!)

6. Treatment Analysis – £79.99 (no hidden fees!)

Book Now Treatment Analysis  approx $160 USD / $120 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

This report features an in-depth (up to 3 page) analysis of your treatment (no more than 10 pages), and particularly focuses on character and structure, helping you to eliminate potential pitfalls in your script’s foundations before the writing process has fully begun.

7. Script Proofing & Polishing Service – £99.99

Book Now Script Proofing and Polishing Service

Scripts that are poorly presented, either in terms of their formatting, their spelling or their grammar immediately put the writer at a disadvantage, and whilst it’s true that a script won’t be rejected purely on the basis of its presentation, it can often be a telling contributory factor. With this service we will proof-read your script and amend it via email, before sending it back to in a far more polished, industry-accepted condition. Please note due to the variable volume of work per individual submission we require you to email us and attach your script so we can gauge the amount of work required and can provide you with a quote.

8. Stageplay Analysis – £124.99 (no hidden fees!)

Book Now Stageplay Analysis  approx $201 USD / $190 AUD (subject to exchange rate)

How quickly will I receive my report?

We guarantee to deliver all script reports and feedback within 21 days, although we’ll typically send your report sooner – within 1 week to 10 days. Regretfully due to ever-shifting workloads, we are unable to be more specific than this. Again, we guarantee to deliver your report within 21 days. We also offer clients a range of fast-turnaround options, including: one week, weekend, overnight and even same day feedback. Please email info @industrialscripts.co.uk with your specific requirements & we will respond with a quote.

If you require feedback sooner, there are options available:

  • Next day – standard price + £125 (script & payment must be received before 6pm for delivery by 6pm the next business day)
  • Over the weekend - standard price + £45 (script & payment must be received before 1pm Friday for delivery by 6pm Monday, if received after this time on Friday the report will be delivered by 1pm Tuesday)
  • 7 days - standard price + £35
  • 14 days - standard price + £20

How long should my script be? Do I need to pay extra?

We charge extra fees for screenplays & projects whose page lengths exceed the limits stated below:

  •     Logline – 25 word pitch for a film or TV series.
  •     Short Script – screenplay for a short film under 20p.

  •     Stageplay – script for a play under 100p.
  •     Treatment – extended film synopsis under 10p.

To pay for a longer project, simply log-in to PayPal, click “Send Money” and deliver the extra fees to the email address payments @industrialscripts.co.uk

Which services are eligible for Talent Connector?

The following services are eligible for our Talent Connector programme: TV Script Analysis; Film Coverage Report; Film Dry-Run Script Report; Detailed Development Notes; Script Editing; Detailed Book Analysis; Script Doctoring.

Can I request a specific script consultant from your rosta to read my script?

Due to our in-demand consultants’ varying workloads, clients are unable to specifically request an individual Industrial Scripts consultant and indeed we do not recommend this approach. Ultimately if your project is to be financed and made, it will be sent to a vast range of industry personnel, and the writer will have no control over this process at all. So to try and control it from the outset is futile – a good script is a good script and needs to impress a wide variety of people to get ahead in the industry.

What else is there I should know?

- We accept projects only in Adobe PDF form and only by email. For obvious reasons, poorly formatted scripts will not endear themselves to us and we strongly recommend that writers use the industry-standard Final Draft Screenwriting Software to format their scripts correctly.

- The report page lengths we specify (ie. a Film Coverage Report delivers 4+ pages of notes and feedback) is the minimum you will receive – any additional pages of feedback you receive should be viewed as a welcome bonus but should not be expected on every report, nor can be guaranteed.

- We use PayPal, the world’s most secure, popular online payment gateway to process all payments. You do not need to have a PayPal account to purchase from us, as PayPal accepts all major credit and debit cards.

- By submitting your script you agree that you hold harmless Industrial Scripts and any of its affiliates, employees and/or sponsors from and against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees, and costs of the court) which may be incurred by reason of any claim involving copyright, trademark, credits, publicity, screening, and loss of or damage to the material submitted.
