The Sunday Giveaway: Free Script coverage for your play or musical!
As you all know, I’m a huge fan of getting as much feedback on scripts as possible. I tell all my consulting clients to do reading after reading, and to have everyone and their brother read their work. While you may get vastly different opinions, what you look for is any common comments. My rule is that if you hear the same thing from three people, (first act too long, this joke isn’t funny, etc.) you know you’ve got an issue. And, during this feedback process, it’s imperative to get objective opinions. Your friends, relatives, spouse, etc. will often give you slightly biased opinions. And that’s not what you want. You want the unadulterated truth from an expert.
One of the most educational things I did for a project I was working on a couple of years ago, was get professional “script coverage” . . . or pay a professional to read my work and give me a thorough written analysis of the script. It was incredible. I learned things about that project, and also on my style in general. It made me a better writer. And based on the expert’s advice, I revised the work, submitted it to a few competitions, and won first place in one and fourth in another. Not bad, huh?
And that’s why we started offering script coverage at Davenport Theatrical! One of my missions is to help you get your shows up on a stage, faster and more efficiently. That’s why I teach the seminars I do, from Get Your Show Off The Ground to How To Raise Money For Your Show. And script coverage is one of those important pieces of the puzzle.
And this week, we’re giving away away one script coverage evaluation for free!
How do you win?
Just tell me why you want it. We’ll pick one of you and the next thing you know, you’ll have a road map on how to make your script even better then it already is.
