What is a script coach?
A script coach is a writing partner with the experience to help you tell the best story possible.
Coaching, unlike coverage or consultation, is an ongoing, in depth and intimate process that will change your life as a writer, no matter where you are at in your career.
Whether you’re a newbie or seasoned pro, together, we can take your script from so-so to a marketable screenplay you’ll be proud of. As we work together, your skill set will increase and you’ll hone your ability to elevate your future work any time for any writing you do.
Every pro uses a coach, whether an athlete, an actor, or a screenwriter. It’s just smart business.
You send me 10 pages, I review them and get back to you with very detailed notes within 36 hours. You will then have 2 days to review them, complete any homework or brainstorming suggestions you've been given, and then we meet via Skype to discuss:
major points illustrated in those 10 pages
questions you have
ways to elevate character, plot, and sequencing to make your story shine.
We repeat this process until you reach FADE OUT and have a screenplay you have confidence in. While no coach can guarantee a sale, you'll be armed with the tools you need to have a more marketable script.
