First 15 Consultation
If readers aren’t grabbed by your story in the first 15 pages, they may not keep reading. Submit the first 15 pages of your script and have a 15-minute story notes call with the executive of your choice. This call will help you create a strong opening/act one to keep readers going until FADE OUT.
First 30 Consultation
There's so much to accomplish in the first act of a feature. Worse, if the reader isn't hooked by page 15, they'll likely stop reading. For the First 30 Consultation, you'll submit the first 30 pages of your feature or one-hour pilot script, and then have a 30-minute story notes call with the executive of your choice. They will help you boost your hook and refine your set up to make sure it is as strong as possible so readers HAVE to know what happens next.
Submit your full feature or TV pilot script and receive an in-depth, one-hour private story notes call with an executive of your choice. You’ll receive specific suggestions on how to elevate your script's dialogue, structure, pacing, characterization, tone, and marketability.
Half-Hour Pilot Consultation
Submit your full half-hour pilot script and have a 30-minute private notes call with the executive of your choice. You'll receive actionable feedback to help you elevate your script’s pacing, structure, dialogue, characterization, tone, and marketability.
How you approach the prep work of outlining your script—whether for your first draft or your 10th—can make all the difference when you sit down to face the blinking cursor. No matter how detailed or macro, all outlines must contain the standard structural integrity and character arcs for your particular format and genre. Submit your outline and the executive of your choice will conduct a 30-minute notes call to give you and your story ground-level guidance. You'll discuss how to refine set up of the structure, pacing, theme, and character development for your script.
Series Bible & Pitch Deck Consultation
In addition to a tight, killer script, every TV project needs a strong series bible or pitch deck to help convey sustainability and its role in the marketplace. And execs commonly ask for a visually driven pitch deck for features as well (especially genre projects). So submit your Series Bible or Pitch Deck (20 pages max) and the exec will conduct a 30-minute notes call to help you clarify, flesh out, and sharpen the document you choose, to help your marketing efforts.
Short films are a great and accessible way to get your feet wet as a multihyphenate (writer-producer, writer-director), and give you real world experience to set yourself apart. In the Shorts Consult, you will submit your short film script (20 pages max) to the exec of your choice, and have a 30 minute notes call to discuss feedback on pacing, character, dialogue and tone, how to elevate marketability, and strategy for next steps.
The exec of your choice will read either the first 25 pages of 4 scripts, 33 pages of 3 scripts, or the first 50 pages of 2 scripts. You'll also submit a one-pager of loglines for their review. Then you'll have a one-hour call with the exec to get their notes and feedback on your portfolio as a whole, as well as receive marketing and career advice. Be prepared to ask guiding questions!
Career Coaching Consultation
Need advice on what to do after finishing your script? Want help with branding, how to best position your material, what logline to work on next, and which companies to target? Submit your full script, your writer bio, AND a one-pager of your loglines. Your chosen exec will read this material prior to your one-hour call. You’ll not only discuss story notes, but also what your next steps should be based on your bio, loglines, and goals.
Pitch Prep Consultation
Need some extra assistance on your pitch? Wanting some one-on-one with an exec to polish your best pitch presentation yet? You know the importance of a strong pitch, but so many factors go into making it resonate, and it always requires more practice than you think. In your private 30-minute call with the exec of your choice, you'll get tailored guidance to prepare you for your best delivery yet. Submit your 1-2 page written pitch for the exec's prior review, and you'll begin the call by giving your 5-7 minute verbal pitch. You’ll then discuss delivery, clarity, structure, characterization, pacing, the opening of your pitch, and how best to end.
Submit the first 60 pages of your book along with a 1-2 page book proposal (if applicable) and receive an in-depth, one-hour story notes call with the executive of your choice. You’ll receive specific suggestions on how to elevate your book's prose, pacing, characterization, tone, and marketability.
