Script Coverage

underwood5small1

A great idea does not necessarily mean you have a great story. And a great story, doesn’t necessarily mean you have a great screenplay.

I provide coverage services on short screenplays, feature screenplays, and synopses.  My focus has always been on film, and that focus is squarely centered on all facets of the page and story; from scene development and overall story arch, to formatting and structure.

Formatting is under-appreciated by most writers. It’s important for the page to look professional if a production company is going to take the writer and their work seriously. Lastly, if you’re writing a short script with the intent of applying for funding, who are they going to give it to, the great story that doesn’t look like a script, or the one that does?

Below you’ll find testimonials, and rates for services.  Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have.  Please place Script Coverage Query in the subject heading.

TESTIMONIALS

Michelle is incredibly perceptive, insightful, and honest. Her feedback on my script “Do we leave this here?” was absolutely spot on and helped tremendously. I was amazed with her ability to provide a much-needed outside perspective on the script while still staying akin to my sensibilities as a writer/director. Looking forward to working with her again on my next project!

… you covered a script of mine called The Time of Killing – The feature length version and excerpts from it have won five awards in three countries … Thanks for your help!

James Freeman, Writer, Feature Screenplay: The Time of Killing

Michelle Muldoon is a writer’s writer. I have seen her in action on a number of occasions over the past years and she is a consummate professional who understands the needs of both the script and the writer. Clear, concise, useful information that is easy to understand, implement and assimilate into your work. Michelle will be working with me on my new project SUNNY and RAYRAY and on many other projects to come.

Michelle’s script coverage services have been invaluable to me. Her notes are firm but fair. She gets down to the heart of the matter in a clear concise manner and she never shies away from follow up questions. She is a passionate and knowledgeable writer. I have learned so many tips and formatting lessons from her feedback that I never managed to pick up in several books I have read on screenwriting. Plus she suggested reading some I hadn’t. She is the real deal. I will continue to seek her guidance in the future because I know I will get the straight goods given in a constructive manner that will only make my script and my overall craft better.

Michelle’s insights on the synopsis for my script Parallel was concise, to the point, and perfect. She found flaws I hadn’t even considered, and her notes helped me solve multiple problems and strengthened both the story and my own voice.
