Development Notes for Writers


Development Notes

A lot of writers think that they can start showing a first draft around and that the kind of folks in the industry will give them feedback and re-read their subsequent drafts until it works… Checkpoint reality! You get one shot. No one has time to give you feedback, most development execs only read the first 30 pages of a script anyway. As soon as you are logged in with a “pass”, word gets around (most executives exchange notes to avoid wasting their time and resources on bad scripts). A lot of places won’t even look at your script if it comes up as a pass next door. You can re-write it until you are blue in the face, until it really rocks, yet virtually no one will read it. Yes, you can change the title, use an alias and change the page count, but the log line will still catch you out. You can end up with the perfect script, yet you lost that race the day you went out with it the first time. The  only way you can avoid this colossal waste of your time, money, and emotions is to get the best development notes and studio coverage you can find as soon as your first draft is done. That’s where we come in… In the greatest possible detail, our Development Notes will address every issue your script has and provide you with creative suggestions on how to fix it.
