ScriptXpert Coverage

ScriptXpert Coverage

  • $149.00


Typing "FADE OUT" is just the beginning of your script's journey in the Industry. The first stop, after you submit to a production company or studio, is Coverage, an analysis and rating of your script by a professional reader who's been trained to spot exactly what Agents, Managers, Producers and content buyers are looking for in a screenplay.

Standard Coverage includes a one-page graded score sheet that evaluates the major elements of your screenplay on a scale of Excellent, Good, Fair or Poor. In addition, your Studio Reader will provide you with two to three pages of notes about why an Industry reader would or would not recommend your screenplay to agents, managers and producers.

Our Standard Coverage package includes:
  • An industry-standard logline
  • One-page synopsis
  • Category chart with ratings on Dialogue, Characters, Story, Conflict, Premise, Format
  • Two pages on Plot, Character and Marketability and one page of overall commentary, with a focus on why the script would or would not be recommended
  • A rating on the “Pass, Consider, or Recommend” scale
Ready to gain insight into the marketability of your Feature Film, Movie-of-the-Week or Television script, just like your script will with an in-house reader at a Hollywood studio? Book your Coverage package today and let us help you improve your odds of having your screenplay sold.

Turnaround time is typically 10-15 days. Select RUSH SERVICE to receive your coverage in 5 business days or less
