Who are our analysts?

We are highly selective on who we take on.

Unlike many other analysis/coverage providers, we require that our analysts also be seasoned screenwriters - our minimum requirement is that they have 5+ years industry experience and have sold or optioned at least one screenplay.

Consequently we employ a small but highly dedicated team.

Our guarantee

Due to the experience our analyst will bring to bear on your script, we guarantee their analysis can make it better.

Our analysis/coverage report and scorecard will highlight areas in which your screenplay can be improved.

If your analyst cannot suggest ways to improve your script, we'll refund your entire fee.
