If you have specific questions for your reader(s), you can send them in here, and your reader(s) will reply.
10-Day Max / Not Available for Works Under 40 Pages
Any follow-up questions sent in more than 10 days after we’ve sent your coverage/notes may not be replied to, as our readers read a lot of material, and may not be able to recall specific details about your project. Follow-Up Questions are not available for Works Under 40 Pages.
Example of an acceptable follow-up question“In your coverage, when you wrote “Bob’s anger ties into the theme nicely, but could be stronger if we saw him in a few intense scenes with Molly prior to his shooting her” — do you mean I should show a few moments of him being angry prior to him shooting her, or that I should just ratchet up the existing scenes between them to be more intense?”
Example of an unacceptable follow-up question:“I want the theme to be more clear. How do I do that? Is the anger coming through? Specifically, do you think Bob’s anger on p. 40 gives away too much? Can Bob be more angry after that point? Can Molly be more forgiving? Is Larry better off as a human or a werewolf? Is the car chase clear enough? What about the scene in the diner? Should I make it more violent? What point do you feel is where Bob is more angry? Can Larry and Molly be stronger when it comes to theme? Is Larry a strong character?”
Follow-Up Question Terms
1) Any follow-up questions sent in more than 10 days after we’ve sent your coverage/notes will not be answered.
Our readers read many many scripts per week, and simply cannot remember the details of each, nor their commentary/critique. We feel, and we hope you agree, that setting a 10-day limit to the follow-up questions is fair to both our client and our readers.
2) Non-Questions – Non-specific questions, comments, and non-questions, as well as any question regarding your order details, prices, or purchase, or anything else outside of the reader’s purview will not receive a reply.
3) The Follow-Up service is designed to provide concise clarity on specific points made by our readers, not for providing additional free analysis on your work.
4) Please allow up to 5 business days for your reader(s)’ reply. If a reader is not available, we’ll let you know, and we’ll get your questions to them as soon as they’re back.
5) 3 Questions Only – Our readers are obligated to answer three questions and three questions only. If you pack multiple questions into each of your main 3 questions below, the reader has the right to pick any 3, from your entire list of questions.
6) To follow up with multiple readers, submit this form once for each reader. (e.g. to ask 3 questions of 3 readers, submit this form 3 times. Once per reader.)
7) The best way to get good follow-up answers from your reader(s) that can help your script or your project more is to focus on the larger issues or problems; not the nitpicky stuff.
8) If you have fewer than 3 follow-up questions, that’s okay. Just leave the other questions blank.
9) Please do not include any contact information or personal information.
