Standard Script Coverage - 1 Reader

Script Coverage – 1 Reader


The script coverage service that’s made us #1 since 1999

We started in 1999 with a single service – a one-reader script coverage. Since then, we’ve grown, added more services to our menu, but we’ve never lost sight of our core service: the single-reader, standard script coverage. It’s been the film industry’s gold standard for decades, and a great asset for screenwriters, producers, agents, and name talent.

Our Standard Script Coverage runs anywhere from six to eight pages (2000 words or more), includes a logline, 1-2 pages of synopsis of your screenplay, a standard RECOMMEND / CONSIDER / PASS reader recommendation, our 25-category Analysis Grid, scoring your script in 25 key categories, 3-4 single-spaced pages of objective script analysis to give you an idea of what’s working and what needs improvement, with regards to story, character, structure, conflict, and dialogue, as well as a brief overview of any punctuation, spelling, or formatting errors, and 3 Reader Follow-Up questions you can ask your reader after you receive your coverage. 

For scripts up to 120 pages maximum only.  We charge an additional $40 for scripts over 120 pages, with a maximum of 200 pages. Please make sure you select the proper page count in the box above. (Required page specifications: US letter 8.5″ x 11″ (21.5 cm by 27.9 cm) only, 12-point Courier-family font, 1″ margins on all sides, max 3.5″ wide dialogue blocks, 54 lines per page max (including white space lines))

General turnaround time for 1-reader script coverages is 24-72 hours.

The notes your readers provided were insightful and were exactly what I was looking for moving forward into a second draft of my script. Although one gave it a consider rating (yay), the other was not as convinced and gave it a pass. Regardless, the latter had some overlap comments/areas that needed improving which I will use in conjunction with the notes from the reader who was more responsive to the material. I was expecting two passes and was elated to get a consider out of the gate... this enthusiasm has really lit a spark at the keyboard to keep going. I sent it in hoping to confirm areas I thought could use improving and both sniffed them out right away. And their insight on possible changes and character issues are immensely helpful. Would highly recommend your services.
