Hollywood's Finest Script Coverage - with the hard evidence to prove it...

Tired of bargain-bin, $60 script coverage, written by unpaid interns?

Battle-weary of paying huge fees to "gurus", who've sold books but never actually got anywhere in the cut-throat world of script development?

Your hunt for a higher level of script coverage, is over...

arrow-circle-down
  • Getting coverage on your scripts before anyone in the industry lays eyes on them isn't just important, it's vital.
  • You only get one shot at a first impression, and agents and producers have long memories (see below!).
  • Deep, actionable script coverage and a proper x-ray of your script, lets you know where you stand.

 Since 2010, Industrial Scripts has been delivering the deepest, most insightful script reports anywhere. Our cherry-picked crew of experienced script consultants are dedicated to helping writers and filmmakers improve. 

Script development is What We Do

24/7. 

Why, in 2018, is script coverage so important?

Well, let's try a little equation...

There are more and more screenplays being written every year.

But the number of bona fide agents, managers, executives and producers hasn't risen at the same pace.

There aren't more (industry) eyes to read these extra scripts.

Ergo...

Put bluntly agents and managers and executives and producers have to be more ruthless with their time.

They have to read fewer pages of a script before either discarding it or reading on, they have to read more scripts generally (because there are more out there, and their whole career hinges on finding great scripts), and most importantly they can't read the same writer twice, if he/she didn't impress the first time.

Let's see that in image form again.

script doctor services

So as writers and filmmakers, what's the takeaway? 

Basically, our scripts need to be in their very best condition when they're exposed to anyone in the industry. They need to be "market ready" (not verified as ready by your best friend Joey or the dude at Starbucks who read Robert Mckee one time, or even Conrad who just graduated with a degree in screenwriting from UCLA).

Market-ready.

To illustrate the point, check out this quote from Hollywood literary manager Jake Wagner.

quote-left

You have to put your best foot forward as a screenwriter. It's got to be your best work, the best version of your script.

I get query emails a lot, and I remember everyone's name. If someone queries me and I like the logline, I'll request the script and give it 15 pages. If it hooks me, I'll keep reading. 

If not I'll quickly Pass.

If someone gets in touch again, and I didn't like their first script, I won't even answer. You really have to put your best foot forward..."

Jake Wagner, Literary Manager, Good Fear + Filmagement

We could sugar coat it, but that's the rub.

If you can hook or leverage a major agent or manager into reading in the first place (not easy), they'll give your script 5-10 pages. If it hasn't grabbed them by then, it's don't-call-us-we'll-call-you time.

The stakes are higher for new writers than they were before, and whilst the range of ways to get discovered have widened, the number of bites at the cherry writers can have with key taste-makers has shortened.

You can't hit and hope in something this competitive...

That's the bad news.

The good news is that Hollywood is more hungry for great scripts, writers and ideas than ever.

It really is. Amazon, Netflix and their ilk have fundamentally changed the game. Leviathon hit shows like Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and all the others don't write themselves, 

And lest we ever forget, someone just sits down in a room and makes these stories up.

It's that simple...and that difficult...but it is do-able.

Deep, actionable script coverage can help you turn that "Pass" project into a "Recommend", can help you filter your great, life-changing ideas from the dead end-ers and save you from blowing a big chance with an agent or manager.

Longevity and Trust

Our script consultants have assessed material for a broad range of production companies, mini-majors and the Hollywood studios themselves. What's more, we're the only script company backed by a major literary agency (the Curtis Brown group, who rep actor Robert Pattinson and DRIVE screenwriter Hoss Amini, to name but two). We were also founded back in 2010 by a Paramount, Warner Bros. and Scott Free script consultant. We've endured.

The Broadest Range of Services

With over 20 individual script reports you can be sure we have an existing service to suit your needs. You can send us a logline, multiple loglines, treatments, pitches, sitcoms, teleplays and screenplays.

Founded by a former Executive

When you start digging under the skin of most script companies, you realise 99% were founded by people who didn't really get too far in script development (Good in a Room and The Black List are two of the few exceptions). By contrast we were founded by a Paramount, Warner Bros., Universal, Scott Free, BBC Films script consultant and Ealing Studios executive.

 REMEMBER  - there are three stages to perfect script development. Get feedback from friends and family first, then book in for a professional opinion, and if that goes well then start going out with the script to the industry. You don't need pro script coverage to improve as a writer per se, but you do need it to know whether you're ready for the big leagues...

Advantages vs Disadvantages

The plain truth of it is that the script coverage world doesn't have a great rep.

Even if you don't book with us, tread very carefully out there, because there's plenty of people with very dubious (aka non existent) industry credentials who'll be happy to help you part with your cash.

The course consists of 5 modules, 26 incredibly detailed lessons, and you'll write a full screenplay while completing it. As the course is online, you can take it from home, at your own pace. 
  • The Deepest Notes
    When you book with other script consultants you'll soon notice that while they promise "5 pages", their notes are often formatted in such a way that the word count is actually quite low. We promise concrete word counts, with zero fluff, to deliver maximum value.
  • Peace of Mind that You're Hiring The Best.

 Six questions we're always asked...

Do I need script coverage to sell a script or get an agent?

What happens if I don't agree with the script coverage?

How qualified are your readers?

Do I really need script coverage to improve my script?

How fast can I get my coverage?

Can I have the same reader I had before?


P.S.:: Don't forget the time to buy script coverage is after you've got some free feedback from trusted friends or - if they'll give it to you straight - family members. The problem with this, of course, is that you won't ultimately know where you stand for sure. You'll have an idea, but by booking script coverage with us you can feel content in the knowledge that you've done your due diligence.

Yes, I want to Know Where My Script Stands!


Rave reviews from working screenwriters and filmmakers...


Paul Nash Screenwriter

The script reader clearly spent the time to really read and think about the script and what we were trying to achieve with it. The feedback and suggestions were way beyond what I've received from other services and after a few days to process it has massively helped us work out what needs redeveloping and what already works, and why. Highly recommended.


Olivia Gagan Screenwriter

I was a complete newbie to script writing and sent my script to IS with no idea what to expect - either of the analysis or of how the script was doing. The report came back quickly and I was really impressed by how much thought had clearly gone into the feedback. It highlighted the good parts and explained what wasn't working with the weaker elements. The feedback also kept a close eye on how commercially viable the script could be. Highly recommended and I've used IS since.


James Tapp Screenwriter

Very impressed with the 6 pages of detailed feedback I received. It had clearly been written by someone with a good knowledge of the genre that I was writing in. Pleased to be told what worked as well as what didn't. There were also some extremely helpful ideas that may well be included in the re-write.


Silvia Dias Screenwriter

My report was surprisingly insightful and undeniably helpful. the best thing it did for me was highlight parts of the script that I had yet to focus on. It cleared out much of the debris left by half deleted half thoughts that first got me writing and overall it helped me rebuild my focus on the type of stories I want to be writing. I know that any future rewrites will only be the better for it. Thanks again Industrial Scripts!


Jack Craig Screenwriter

Incredibly helpful service. Despite reading the reviews I was still surprised by the quality and level of detail contained with the 6 page report. Most importantly, the report included numerous pieces of actionable feedback which I have managed to incorporate into a subsequent draft. Would definitely recommend this service.


John Larkin Screenwriter

I have used Industrial Scripts several times and each time I find their readers to be extremely thorough and helpful in their analysis. I would recommend their services for any stage your story may be in. It is also helpful to get the coverage a second time after making changes. They are also responsive to questions in regards to the Talent Connector program. Overall I feel Industrial Scripts provides the best service and most professional feedback in regards to getting this type of coverage.


Nathan Cowley Screenwriter

Fantastic service. I have used Industrial Scripts script analysis on a few occasions now and it has been extremely helpful every time. The feedback is excellent and tells you exactly what is needed to improve your script. I would highly recommend.


Sacha Boxell Screenwriter

Extremely useful, insightful and fair feedback. I couldn't recommend more highly.


Chris Grezo Screenwriter

I have used a lot of different script services over the years, and work in the film industry, and I can tell you that in my experience Industrial Scripts are the best and most consistent.


Chris Brennan Producer

2nd time using Industrial Scripts and it's the 2nd time I am thrilled with the results. Very clear, structured analysis of my project, with concrete suggestions on how to make it better. Will definitely be using this report again!


Ashley Sanders Screenwriter

The fifth time I've used Industrial Scripts and their feedback is as insightful and well-considered as usual and I will continue to use them. The feedback mirrored feedback I received from a Develop Executive at the same time, so they are definitely barking up all the right trees. My script was also deemed good enough to make their Talent Connector programme - which is a nice free bonus. I heartily recommend them.


Nathan Engelbrecht Producer

Very clever analysis. The reader clearly had a deep understanding narrative but more importantly had the foresight to offer truly effective fixes.


Mohummad Humza Screenwriter

Heavily indebted to Industrial Scripts for the review and feedback I received. There was an even balance between highlighting the good (in my case, plot and dialogue) and the negatives (clarifying actions and rules of thumb). Above all, what I found encouraging about the review is that the reader seemed to genuinely WANT to be engaged with the material. That's always difficult when you have to review scripts of all standards, day in day out, but I felt that the reader gave me a fair shake, which resulted in an 'Honorable Mention'. I would definitely recommend the service, which was on time and most importantly, CONSTRUCTIVE in its criticism. To be given a fair chance is all most writers ask for and if you want to take your script forward and progress with the craft, a service like this is invaluable. Thanks again!


David Owens Screenwriter

This clear cut critique enabled me to see flaws in my script that I could not see on my own. A crucial sentence written by the analyst gave me the answer to a question I had been wrestling with regarding an alternate ending for the script. Most importantly, this service gave me free access to Talent Connector.


Mark Jackson Screenwriter

I'm very happy with the insights and analysis on my screenplay. It's given me lots of useful points to help improve the script further. I would recommend the service.


Tim Conrad Screenwriter

Excellent, detailed analysis that was easy to action. Clearly pinpointed where the script's weaknesses and strengths were. I will definitely use Industrial Scripts again!


Kevin Karp Screenwriter

The analysis was helpful in that it pointed out the strong points of the script and suggested ways to improve the weak points, while showing a genuine appreciation for the world of the story.


Eveline Powell Screenwriter

I found the script report above and beyond what was promised, very detailed and perceptive with suggestions that I am currently working on in the second draft. I am pretty confident it will be a better script as a result, so it was absolutely worth the money.


John Larkin Screenwriter

Industrial Scripts give thorough and comprehensive notes. I found their feedback to be incredibly helpful and thoughtful. The readers are always very informed and knowledgable, providing valuable insight to the strengths and weaknesses of the story. I have used other less expensive sites, but the readers seemed to miss something, which made their feedback less credible. With Industrial Scripts I find all the notes and insight to be right on because they are so in touch with the story, seemingly knowing where the story is and what it could become. I can give nothing but rave reviews for this service and the quality of readers they employ.


James Oliver Screenwriter

The coverage report I received was fantastic. It was extremely helpful and I could tell that it had been read thoroughly. I will be using the feedback to help improve my script going forward.


Peter Eliot Director

Excellent quality of feedback with detailed and relevant action points making it easy to know where to improve and why. I will use again with confidence. Well worth the money.


Dale Hartleben Producer

As an Academy Award winning producer writing my first screenplay, I chose Industrial Scripts because I wanted a completely unbiased, professional critique from the largest leading edge script consulting company. I wanted my script to be judged against the largest cross section of scripts competing for recognition in todays marketplace. I can say that the two script coverage reports I received were excellent, professional and extraordinarily instrumental in helping me achieve my script’s potential. Industrial Scripts service is a must for all serious emerging screenwriters.


James Neiro Producer

Fantastic! Very helpful and incredibly valuable feedback.


Andrey Khvostov Screenwriter

The notes arrived on time and were truly thoughtful and helpful. As someone having worked in development for several years I couldn't expect more from the "fresh pair of eyes" that we needed so much at this point. We will continue our work with the notes in mind and are looking forward to working with Industrial Scripts again!


Nathan Cowley Screenwriter

Great analysis as always, the comments always really help you improve your scripts.


Rachel Paterson Screenwriter

I had a report from Industrial Scripts on my short film script. The coverage was without doubt some of the best I've received. Not in the sense that it was flattering... more that the reader had really taken time to read it and understand what we were trying to do. The references were hugely niche, but bang on. The reader was incredibly well chosen for the project, and really knew their stuff. The criticisms and suggestions were constructive, and phrased in a way that helped the writer and the director interpret and implement the readers comments without any conflict arising. Five star service. Worth ever penny.


Joshua Mellor Screenwriter

Excellent service. The report was far more detailed than I expected and noted aspects that I never would have considered. Highly recommend for anyone looking to hone their writing skills!


Richard Pengelley Producer

I can strongly recommend this service, it was an encouraging and insightful day, thank you.


Melissa Reynolds Screenwriter

The consultant provided a highly detailed report, complimenting the strong parts of the script and offering very constructive ways to improve on the areas that need more work and attention. They were very complimentary of my writing style, and offered me a lot of encouragement which is greatly appreciated. The consultant used specific examples from the script to highlight their points, which was very helpful and demonstrated how thoroughly they had read my screenplay and understood the story I am telling. I am very happy with the feedback and appreciate it immensely, after working hard on this screenplay for the last 8 years. I will definitely be using Industrial Scripts for screenplay feedback from now on.


Stefan Haselwimmer Screenwriter

Comprehensive and insightful script coverage. Thank you, Industrial Scripts!


Eleanor Verner Screenwriter

Definitely worth the money, very intelligent, constructive analysis that will help ensure I make the episode as good as it can be. I will definitely be using Industrial Scripts services again.


Gemma Ventura Screenwriter

This is the fourth time I use the analysis service and I all I can say again is that this is the best online service for screenwriters without doubt. The coverage reports are always on time, are very clear and and precise. I really appreciate having this option since it is the best way to advance properly with my scripts. I have recommended Industrial Scripts to all of my colleagues.


Gareth Director

Very helpful analysis. really helped me focus and refine the structure and characters. Recommend.


Michelle Producer

If you want to see a breakdown of your script and the areas where it may need more work, then I would highly recommend using Industrial Scripts' "film dry-run report" . The feedback we received was honest, professional, and highly valuable during the latest edit of our screenplay.


Eva Klaver Producer

Once again received a detailed and constructive report. The consultants often exceed my expectations. I'm always inspired to develop my screenplay using their notes as guidance.


Richard Webb Screenwriter

Industrial Scripts provided a very enlightening critique of our screenplay. It allowed us to see our work in a new light. Also they provided relevant suggestions for improvement, which were very helpful, and have not been provided as often by other editors we have used in the past.


Andy Kozel Screenwriter

I've used Industrial Scripts, along with others, and it's my favorite. I use it every time I write a new script. They go above and beyond with deconstructing your project.


Rachael Giddings Screenwriter

Very helpful feedback, identifying areas of strength and development but, most importantly, offering ideas for ways to move forwards. The notes were detailed but concise and left me with a very clear view of what my next steps are.


Dan McCurry Screenwriter

The analysis was good. I did all the things that were recommended by the reader. The report was delivered on time.


Michael Faunce-Brown Screenwriter

My reports have been valid, to the point and very useful. Constructive criticism is always valuable. As a result, my scripts have advanced considerably. Thank you.


Garret Walsh Director

As ever, Industrial Scripts really delivered above and beyond what I hoped for with really concise and actionable insight into what works and doesn't with my script. Over the past few years their reviews have become an integral part of my writing process - I wouldn't consider anyone else for this service nor could I recommend them highly enough.


Poppy Cleere Screenwriter

Really impressed by my coverage report from Industrial Scripts - it went into so much more detail than expected, and it was great to be given notes by someone who clearly knows their craft and has a passion for film. The turnaround time was even faster than anticipated, and it was really eye opening to read a different take on the story. Most importantly, however, it has encouraged me to continue with the script, which for me is worth 1000x the price! As a first time writer, with a first ever draft, to be taken seriously and given thoughtful, in-depth feedback was a real boost. There was some contradiction with what was advised in the notes, but overall I think the service is excellent. I will definitely be using Industrial Scripts again soon!


Matthew Williams Producer

Having receiving an impressively detailed and insightful Film Script Coverage Report, we opted for the Dry Run Report once we implemented the recommended changes. The script went from a Low Consider (Honourable Mention) to a Consider. Without the comments from the Coverage Report I don't think we would have got there. The Dry Run Report was truly an "acid test", and upon reading it felt like we had an insight into the inner workings of a production company. A great way to tell if your script is ready to be submitted to the industry. Highly recommend both of these Industrial Script services. Best we've come across, by a mile.


Saskia Screenwriter

Absolutely 5 star report. And to think I wasn't really expecting much. The script consultant clearly knew their business, was articulate in their explanations and generous in their suggestions. The constructive criticism chimed with other people's comments, as well as my own gut feelings. Because they offered suggestions of ways of dealing with the script's weak points I felt confident as I set to the next draft. The abundance of the report (7 pages?) meant I had plenty to take in and structure my changes. IT wasn't all criticism ( thank you for my 'Consider') and the comments and references to the material made me feel the script consultant 'got' my writing. I will definitely be submitting other work.


Fausto Politi Screenwriter

I chose “film dry-run report” for my script, the Reader’s report was very useful to such an extent that my re-submission has improved from HONORABLE MENTION to CONSIDER. A great step forward indeed.


Chandler Holloway Screenwriter

Outstanding service. Exceeded my expectations. Film Forensic Notes gives the perfect report to help improve your script. I will continue to use Industrial Scripts to edit all of my screenplays.


Kevin Fitzpatrick Screenwriter

I had already reworked my script extensively so the feedback I got was less on structure and story and more on the scene description and character details, which was exactly what I wanted. The reader not only highlighted areas for improvement but offered some excellent suggestions, many of which I have incorporated into my latest draft. Constructive feedback, greatly appreciated!

A very well thought through and well-considered analysis that identified several issues with my script that I had been blind to. It really helped with my rewrite, giving me the tools to improve the stuff that wasn't working along with an extra boost of enthusiasm for the project. The fourth time I have used IS - which tells you all you need to know.

The report was much more detailed than I expected, and it was clear the reader had taken a great deal of time to understand the story, appreciate the structure, and propose very intelligent and sensitive solutions to some problems that he or she found. I really appreciated it, and have taken it to heart. I believe my screenplay is much stronger for having gone through this process. I will definitely do it again!

Another great report from Industrial Scripts. As well as detailed feedback about the structure and characters, the analysis also provides advice on how to make the script more commercial - which is the first thing it gets judged on when you send it around. The page citations are exceptionally helpful too! As always, an extremely valuable service.
