Film and TV script reporting


As a professional film screenplay consultant I've written more than 150 script reports on feature film and TV scripts in all genres for various individuals, film financiers, film producers, and film directors - some of them Oscar winners. Many of these screenplays have been produced. 


My detailed film script reports enable screenwriters, film directors, film producers, and film script developers to achieve essential cinema audience engagement. My script reporting therefore helps film makers find success.


I go beyond highlighting issues with a screenplay. I also provide solutions: ways the screenplay can be improved. Improvement may just involve better script dialogue or better screenplay action text; but more usually it involves deep changes to the screenplay story and structure - even the screenplay concept.


In my experience as a script analyst, the problems with screenplays usually exist at a 'roots' level, rather than at the levels of 'twigs' and 'branches'. So screenwriters and script developers (whether they are film producers, script development personnel, or film directors) must have the courage to 'go into the story' at fundamental levels in order to realise the potential of the script.


When it comes to screenplays, you can't paper over the cracks. You have to rebuild the wall: a brilliant production can never disguise a bad film script (just as a brilliant screenplay can to some degree shore-up a bad production).


The value of excellent film script analysis is therefore immeasurable. It can empower film makers and screenwriters to find success. So let's get cracking.
