WriteMovies offer an industry-leading track record of providing truly international script competitions, studio-quality consultancy for writers and producers, and securing our winning writers the deals they deserve in the industry. You can combine our services to get the best possible prospects of success.
- Main Contest Entry
- Studio Consulting
- and Development Notes!
TIP: Studio Consulting is a report that an analyst would give a producer which assesses the current potential of the script and writer, and recommends whether the script and writer are currently worth commissioning (and a ‘Recommend’ is quite rare). Judging Feedback provides briefer extracts from the same report, without some sections. Development Notes are designed to help the writer achieve their goals with the script and improve its commercial potential.
