Notes vs Coverage
Coverage is a quick read with generic feedback, "I like this character. He's funny." Anyone can provide Coverage. In fact, many do. Amateur Coverage Readers are at the bottom of the industry food chain, and only a small step up from useless, blind-leading-the-blind peer reviews.
Coverage is a popularity contest that does not help the writer improve their script. Coverage inflates a writer's sense of the script's worth or crushes them with unmotivated negativity. And neither includes recommendations for improvement nor page-by-page red marker annotations.
Notes are an in-depth read by an industry professional Reader vested in your success. Notes are specific and focus on story successes and failures, and how to fix the script. "This character, while quite funny, has no goal. Their arc is flat and they have no obstacles to overcome. Here's how to fix it."
The Screenplay Gurus' Readers have developed scripts both for sale and production. Their scripts have won contests and been produced.
Our Readers pore over every word and red mark the entire script for typos, formatting, and story issues. Following our Notes raises the level of your script and fully prepares it for a highly competitive market.
Don't get covered, get Notes.
