Since we launched in 2014, WeScreenplay has provided the industry’s best quality, fastest, and most affordable notes on screenplays. We offer pages of detailed notes on your work in just 72 hours, and we do it at a price that no one can come close to. And now, we’re creating a few updates to our feedback options to help writers even more.
New Names for Our Coverage/Notes Options.
With the changing coverage options we’ve given them some new names: Classic, Bespoke, and Comprehensive. You’ll notice some similarities and some differences with the newly named options.
Qualitative Scores Instead of Numbers
Over the years we’ve received lots of questions and concerns regarding the numerical scores that come with our coverage. While scores help writers understand how they’re improving, we found they were distracting from the most important part of the feedback – the actual written notes provided by the analyst. Some writers complained that their scores were too low, too confusing, and in some cases, too high.
We’ve simplified it. Instead of presenting you your numerical scores, we’re now letting you know how each of your categories was received by the reader:
- Virtually Perfect
If you receive an “improve”, don’t worry. It’s not that your reader didn’t enjoy your script, it’s that they felt there are still plenty of areas to improve to have it reach its full potential.
For statistics fans, we’ll still show you your overall percentile and we’ll even call out the top categories for your project.
Marketing Blueprint (for Bespoke and Comprehensive Notes packages)
Our most exciting change is the marketing blueprint. This improves what was formerly the “marketability” section and makes your feedback even more helpful in a few different ways.
First, we’ll ask you for your goals with your project. WeScreenplay is focused on helping writers achieve their goals, and so by understanding your goal with the project, we can shape the feedback given. If it is a script you’re using to get signed with a manager versus a script that you’re looking to shoot yourself, the notes may vary slightly.
Second, we’ll provide feedback about the market for your script given the specified goal. The feedback here will be a little less subjective and focus on concrete things you can do to help better position your script for the industry. For example, if you’re looking to raise funding to shoot yourself, we’ll point out location and character count considerations. If you’re looking for something to sell to a studio, we’ll talk about your premise and hook. This is a 1-2 page dive into the extra things you can consider to make it a great movie.
No More Synopsis (Unless you want it)
The former Full and Premium coverage options automatically included a synopsis — but we found many writers didn’t need them or find them useful. The new coverage options (Classic, Bespoke, and Comprehensive) don’t include a synopsis by default, but a synopsis can be added to any of them for an additional fee.
We hope you find the new options even more helpful in your writing journey. If you have any feedback or questions about them, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org
