Script Reader Jobs
Script reader jobs open up from time to time here at Screenplay Readers, as we occasionally add new script analysts to our team. We require several years’ experience reading and analyzing scripts. The pay here at Screenplay Readers ranges anywhere from $40 for a typical 120-page script coverage to $150-$600 and up for consulting and notes.
Respectfully, we do not work with interns or entry-level analysts. If you’re new to script analysis, please get out there and rack up some development experience before applying here. Sorry if that sounds bad, but we’re just super-selective about who we bring aboard.
To be considered, we’ll need to see two samples of your previous coverage / script notes / screenplay development work and your current resumé. Candidates must be available for a soft minimum of 1 script per week and be willing to blend their writing style and voice with our rigorous standards.
In addition, we can only consider your application if you match all of the following criteria:
1) You’re a critical thinker who understands the mechanics of screenwriting (dialogue, conflict, plot, pacing, character, etc.), as well as script formatting (punctuation, spelling, usage, etc.).
2) You understand the film industry and/or spec market enough to be able to strategically assess a spec script’s chances and/or where/how it fits in the current market.
3) You’re able to write script analysis that’s as objective and as balanced as possible.
4) Your English language skills are absolutely impeccable.
