Tips for getting your screenplay be read by the right people

Posted Monday 04 Feb 2019

It took a year or so, but Stephen Follows and ScreenCraft crunched the data behind 12,309 feature film script reports, and the results are now available to read - and we encourage you to do so! The results reveal patterns in how script readers rate scripts, and what you should avoid if you're looking to maximise your script's scores. Follows points out that scoring well with readers "could lead to your screenplay reaching the desks of the great and the good (who are hopefully also the rich and the powerful)" while scoring poorly could mean that "all the countless hours you put into your screenplay will just have been 'character building'."
