As I mentioned previously
, I'm participating in Script Frenzy
during the three month break from my screenwriting. Of course, Script Frenzy is just one month (June) and I'm not aiming to complete the 20,000 words in the allotted month since my screenwriting instructor specifically said not to, but I still think it's a good jumping off point. But what do we do after we've finished our scripts? Assuming we're not planning on making them ourselves (although I'm seriously considering that, my health willing).
Well, there are competitions and agents and studios, oh my... but chances are a Script Frenzy draft isn't ready for any of them yet. Which leads me to this post. For those who aren't familiar with it, Scriptapalooza
is an annual international screenplay competition. Well, they've recently added a script coverage service
to help you improve your script. As their tagline says: "The industry is ready for your script. Make sure your script is ready for the industry."
If you don't have access to an industry professional who can give you thorough and unbiased feedback on your script, then you should seriously consider a service like this. I'm sure there are other services like this out there, so don't feel like it's this or nothing. But this one was recommended by Movie Maker Magazine
, so I thought it was worth mentioning. For more screenwriting links from Movie Maker Magazine, check out their Screenwriting Listings
