When is a Script Polish needed:

A Script Polish is needed for all scripts before they are submitted or pitched to investors, streaming, broadcast and industry executives. For a detail description of a script polish, see below.

Our Polish of a script follows the same guidelines and standards investors, streaming, broadcast and industry executive clients requires Susan to adhere to, when polishing a script prior to them reviewing, approving it for funding or sending a script to series. 

 

Our Script Polish includes:

  • A review and evaluation to determine if what is written reflects your vision, appeals to the audience it is targeted for and meets the needs of the industry executives you plan to submit it to. 

  • Evaluate the flow, structure and strengths of the beginning, middle and ending of the storyline. We also perform an analysis of each scene to determine the smoothness of the transition to the next scene and it's overall impact on the story. 

  • Where needed, enhance the dialogue to highlight the genre or a character’s approach to a specific scene and it's appeal to the targeted audience.

  • Look for scenes to cut or trim. Focus on dialogue that can be dropped or trimmed to enhance the scene description.

  • Evaluate the pace: A combination of dropping, switching, or reworking scenes to enhance the flow of the story line.

  • Depending on the genre: determine which scenes a character's actions can be increased to match the genre, i.e., for a comedy does it need more jokes, if drama does it need more tension, if action, does it need more violence etc.

  • Final review and edits of entire script after all of above steps have been completed, to determine if it meets the vision of the writer and business or programming needs of the party it's being submitted to.

When is a Script Coverage Report (SCR) Needed?

 
Before submitting to investors or industry executives, it provides feedback on if what is written meets your vision and industry writing standards.  Our SCR is a summary of your script storyline based on what is written. Then we provide notes, recommendations and suggestions to enhance your script's entertainment and programming value for investors, streaming, cable and industry executives, based on who it could be submitted to. 

Susan will discuss with you her suggestions and recommendations for edits of your script. You can then decide if you want your writer to implement the recommendations or ask Susan to make the changes for you.

  • Our Emmy® Award Winning Writer and Award Winning Producer Susan B. Flanagan is the lead executive producer of our prime vendor division and works directly with our studio, streaming, cable and industry executive clients. 

  • As a prime vendor, we work directly with industry executives and provide a variety of script and production services and offer the same level of experience and attention to our independent clients.
