Script Consulting – Brennan Mark Smith
Need story structure help? Get your screenplay to the next level by working with a screenwriter with over 10 years experience. I have collaborated on multiple scripts and I currently consult as a story analyst for Act One Program and Keys2ScriptSuccess. Now I am trying to reduce the number of pages I have to write for providing feedback. Try one of the following:
Quick Evaluation – $50
Many times you don’t have to submit a completed project to get the analysis you really need. Submit one of the following:
- Your first 10 pages – you will receive a complete analysis and proofread as well as expectations and ideas for the rest of your story based on your set up.
- Your whole screenplay – beginning, middle and end – written in less than 2 pages. Choose a basic coverage analysis of its strengths and weaknesses, or a 1 hour phone or skype conversation that will focus on the above, plus brainstorming to take your concept to the next level.
Full Script Analysis – $300
This isn’t coverage but a full-scale assessment and brainstorming of improvement, without the paperwork. We will discuss your work in-depth over a 2 hour phone or skype conversation.
“You worked a miracle… Not only did you put your finger in all the sore spots unbeknownst to us, you also opened up a wellspring of ideas in me, which was so relaxing that I slept like a stone last night.” – German Producer
Why am I doing this? Over the past years of doing script analysis, I’ve learned that after crafting a strong analysis with effective story tools and ideas, I can still miss the intent of your project because what you really want to convey might not be on the page! I have found that a substantive discussion with the writer creates a clearer opportunity to identify weaknesses and elevate your project by working with you.
“As always, GREAT notes! I’m going to see how I can incorporate some of this brilliance. I’ll let you know when I have another draft for the treatment. Thanks for Everything!” – Screenwriter in Hollywood
“The notes you gave me are the best critique notes I’ve gotten. Really look forward to speaking with you to make the story really punch at take it to the next level.” – Executive Producer/Director in Hollywood

“There were some very good tips and pointers …there were also some very unique and exciting ones that I had not considered. In fact, a couple were so good, I’m not sure how I would go about incorporating them without giving [Bren] credit!” – Texas Creative Executive
