A thorough, written evaluation or In-person Consult with our Director of Creative Development, Eric Webb with specific actions items on how to get your script to the next level.
Written coverage: Eric will take your materials, review them, then write up feedback on your concept, character and plot development, suggestions for improvement and beat by beat notes that he has.
In-person Consult: Three 1-Hour phone or Zoom chats with Eric (1 per month). The same review process as above. Eric will send along notes (not a full written coverage) in advance of your session. You will then have a chance to chat about your questions, ideas, and whatever else may be concerning you based on his feedback.
Eric responds to overall concept, character and plot development, dialogue and lyric tone/voice/efficiency, song placement - the whole kit and caboodle.
You decide which option you'd prefer, but for both written and In-person options you would receive his written beat-by-beat notes on the script. With written Coverage you receive the broader stroke analysis in written form, while In-person Consults give you the chance to discuss whatever is most pressing for you. Eric will always sends his notes in advance of in-person sessions so that you have a general sense of where his head is at and you can then form your own questions.
