Script Consulting and Screenplay Analysis Rates

Script consulting rates for either Basic or Full Analysis are based on the length of the script: 30-minute sitcom, 60-minute teleplay or feature length screenplay. Additionally, Full Analysis of your script offers two choices for follow-up consulting during rewrite.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In an effort to provide flexible, affordable options, the consulting fee for the Basic Analysis of your script may be applied to a Full Analysis with Development Notes at a later time. For example, if you submit a 60-minute teleplay for Basic Analysis ($85.00) and then decide you would like to receive the development notes/10 followup sessions provided in the Full Analysis, the consulting fee would be only an additional $85.00. You pay only the difference between the Basic and Full Analysis.

Basic Analysis
Includes an evaluation of the bones of your script: theme, genre and tone, structure, pacing, characters and dialogue, with strengths and weaknesses in each critical area and advice for improvement. Additional pages over the standard lengths stated below are an additional $2 per page.
