New screenplay? Is it time for in-depth consultation services? IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on August 11, 2013 at 09:50:27 PM by scriptcat
Did you just finish your first draft or your third? Congratulations! It's that time of year when many of the top screenwriting contest deadlines are looming.
It's true, you'll probably get one shot to make the right impression in a town where they stop reading after the first typo or format issue. So, your talent is equally as important as your attitude and work ethic. It takes all three to standout in a very competitive marketplace. When you consider approximately 30,000 - 40,000 scripts/treatments/pitches/loglines and books are registered every year with the Writers Guild, you have to be writing at a professional level to beat the incredible odds.
The only real competition should be with yourself to become a better screenwriter, but if you have any doubts about your screenplay, now is the perfect time to receive professional consultation before you unleash your magnum opus upon Hollywood.
I'm a working screenwriter/script consultant with over fifteen years of professional experience and produced credits in television and indie features. I've been blessed to work and collaborate with some top professionals in Hollywood and many became my friends and mentors. In this spirit of giving back and sharing my experience, I offer professional real-world analysis of your feature or TV pilot script to help push it to the next level.
