Scripts for cinema or television, fiction or animation, single episodes or a series may be submitted from any country in Latin America for any of four services:
1. Basic Script Analysis – Does the story work? Are the characters and situation believable? If not, why not? The Basic Script Analysis provides a 2-3 page outline of areas of potential improvement and includes one live consultation via Skype.
2. In-Depth Script Analysis – Act by act, scene by scene breakdown of script with full detailed notes. Does the structure work? Are the acts well delineated? Will the story pull in the audience? Are the characters well drawn? Do their actions make sense within the story? The In-Depth Script Analysis provides a complete plan for a potential rewrite or polish of the script, suggestions for improving characters, structure and tone in 20–25 pages and includes two live consultations via Skype (before and after preparation of analysis).
3. Complete Script Re-Write – Have your script (100 – 110 pages) professionally rewritten to industry standard. Service includes unlimited live consultation via Skype.
4. In-Depth Script Analysis + Complete Script Re-Write (Combination of Nos. 2 and 3 above). Following receipt of the analysis, a complete script rewrite may be requested to continue the project. The fee for the Analysis will be applied to the total fee for the rewrite.
