spot-on notes regarding structure, character development and theme. “

Expert script consulting and screenwriting tips so you can:

  • Sell your script
  • Get an agent
  • Pitch your concept
The Challenge

Selling a screenplay/TV script or attracting an agent can be a discouraging, confusing process for any screenwriter. After all the blood, sweat, tears spent writing your final draft, you submit your script again and again, only to receive a “thanks, but no thanks” form letter that gives little or no clue as to why they passed.

Obviously there’s a problem with the script, but what? Is it the writing? The plot? The characters? Is your script fixable or hopeless? Or worse yet, maybe it’s you. Maybe you’re not good enough.

The Solution

Relax! Stop questioning your talent. Self-doubt is just another form of writer’s block. It’s an obstacle preventing you from addressing the real issue with the script: you’ve lost perspective. You can’t fix what you can’t see. Contact The Scriptsmith Script Consulting!

In my experience, I’ve found that script issues vary and are often minor. Given a decent concept, a screenplay can be transformed from promising to compelling. Whether you’re an aspiring screenwriter or a working professional, whether you’re writing scripts for television or for film, I can get you there.

Through my script consulting process, we’ll explore and exploit your theme and characters, the foundation of my consulting approach. If you are new to script writing, I will help you avoid common mistakes, ensuring that your script or screenplay not only reads well, but looks professional. For working writers, I provide a fresh perspective, an objective eye, and a sounding board for your rewrite.

Whatever your experience, I will improve your script and its marketability, and give you valuable screenwriting tools and tips to apply to all your future screenplays.

The Bottom Line

Script consulting rates are reasonable, less than the fee for a scriptwriting workshop. See Services and Rates page for details.  And be sure to review Screenwriting Tips for advice on getting an agent, submitting your script and much more.
