Short Script Coverage

A Stage 32 Exclusive!


Short films are tricky. To do it right, you have to tell as much story as you would in a full-length piece, but in a fifth of the time. Shorts and features are, in fact, wildly different beasts. So, why on earth would you seek out the same coverage for the two? That’s why we provide our exclusive Short Script Coverage, the only coverage of its kind industry-wide!


What Is It?

A professional industry reader will carefully read your short script and provide you with comprehensive coverage in return. This feedback is constructive, detailed and thorough, tackling all of your crucial script elements including the strengths and weaknesses of your concept, characters, structure and plot.


What Our Writers are Saying:

Stage 32 is THE BEST COMMUNITY FOR WRITERS. I give it 4 thumbs up.

- Dorothy Harris


I wanted to say a huge thank you to [Stage 32 Industry Reader] Allen Roughton, [UK-based literary agent] Christina Pickworth, and [FOX producer] Regina Lee, for such helpful notes on my scripts so far. Between them, it has made a huge impact on my work so far, in formatting initially, but afterwards in content to make sure the reader is gripped in the first ten. I have felt hugely encouraged and gently guided where improvements are required. I feel I am really getting a picture of how the industry works and how I will get a sale of my two features and which of my shorts to focus on making myself when lockdown ends.
