STUCK? LOST? NEED HELP?
LET'S DIVE INTO YOUR SCREENPLAY.
Every writer's been there...banged out a draft and now it feels meh. Finished the twelfth rewrite and it still feels off. The proverbial forest has been obscured by trees and you need a fresh look to jolt you out of the rut. There's help.
After diving into hundreds of screenplays, and chatting with countless professional writers and filmmakers, it is apparent that there are only two rules in screenwriting: don't be boring, and don't be confusing. Other than that, anything goes...with one caveat...it has to work. Good writing works on a fundamental level where all the nuts and bolts are hidden and allow the creativity to delight and surprise.
So, here's what you won't get...a checklist of requirements following some rigid structure touted by some book. Paradigms and pre-ordained beat sheets may be good learning tools, but they're not gospel and can be quite frustrating when you're trying to fit a unique story into a pre-set structure. It doesn't make sense to evaluate a personal drama through the lens of an epic adventure or a crime story...unless the personal drama is an epic adventure or a crime story. The permutations are endless, which is why each screenplay needs to be evaluated on the merits of the unique story being told.
Good writing stems from good re-writing, and for a screenplay to shine, unbiased professional feedback is an invaluable part of the process.
So, here is what you will get...a review of your screenplay that will touch on the overall idea and premise, characters, structure, conflict, goals, questions, setups, escalations, payoffs, context, clarity, theme, descriptions, action, dialog.
