Screenplay Consulting

June 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 137

Successful screenplay writers utilize screenplay consulting before submitting their screenplay to a production company. Screenplay consulting is undertaken by screenplay professionals with industry knowledge and experience. If you plan to undergo a screenplay analysis, you should begin by remembering the following information and tips.

People often hesitate to hire screenplay consultants because they assume their rates are too high for their budget. However, the rates by some professional script consultants are actually quite reasonable. In addition, they may even offer payment installments. Keep in mind that a good screenplay consulting service can save you months or even a year writing and rewriting a script. With consulting services, you will be able to get past the hurdles that are impeding you from writing the completed screenplay.

It is true that some experts and analyst may ask for high rates, especially when they are well-known within the movie industry. But the majority of screenplay analysts do not require high rates. All you have to do is compare the prices and select one that offers reasonable rates. As a general rule, the best company will neither be the most expensive or the cheapest. With installments, you will be able to better assess the screenplay writer's ability to consult and help you.

Others hesitate when they believe screenplay consulting takes too much time, but this is not true. A good analysis requires a minimum of two or three reads, a write up, and an optional phone consult. The entire process usually takes about a week. You can benefit from professional screenplay consulting services when the company has consultants who specialize in a specific genre. There are different nuances and genre-specific guidelines, and a horror writer may not be knowledgeable in the conventions of romance writing, for instance. Hire a consulting service who has specialists in your genre of screenwriting.

A screenplay consulting service focuses on the strengths and the weaknesses of your plot, characters, dialogue, and structure as well as a number of other components specific to your genre. Screenplay consulting is used by professional screenwriters and novices alike. Even screenwriters whose scripts have been sold and produced numerous times understand that their first and even second or third draft is not perfect, and an outside analysis can help by to point out aspects that may have been overlooked. The consulting services can also indicate whether your story is marketable, and if it is not they can make suggestions to increase its marketability.
