Script Appraisal Service

After spending hours working in isolation, creating characters, developing a story, amending and editing your script, the time arrives to show your work to another.  We know how difficult this can be. Who do you choose? A friend or colleague who may be extremely complimentary but not very constructive? A publisher looking for works that suit their policies?

We appreciate the hard work that has gone into producing your script and our experienced team is on hand to be frank, positive and constructive providing suggestions that could help transform your play from page to stage and have it well on it’s journey to gaining publication.

A writer often has just one chance to wow a company or producer with their script. It is essential that script has excelled at everything it does, to be picked out of the crowd and noticed. As we’ve all experienced at some time or another a second opinion can throw up things we may ourselves have missed.

Process Overview

Submit your script to Sky Blue along with a very fair fee. One of our independent readers will proof read, review and provide feedback on:

-1. The script format and layout providing a marked up copy of the script highlighting any errors
-2. Staging and stage craft
-3. Style, content, appeal, structure, character, dialogue and plot

A full report with analysis will typically be produced within 14 days of confirmation of receipt. The process is entirely internet based; allowing writers to submit their scripts for appraisal at any time from all over the world. The length of each script report may vary just as each script differs greatly from the next.
