Story Development is a process. I know that and you know that. But sometimes factors of time and budget allow you to only move forward step by step. In that case I have the following individual services for you, depending on the stage of your development.
1. STAGE ONE ($99)
– story + text analysis of the synopsis.
– written notes + 1 hour tele-conference.
At the conceptual stage, this service helps you determine the strengths and weaknesses of your story or story idea.
At a later draft stage, this service helps you to make sure you are selling your story in the best possible way, to producers, potential investors or government agencies.
2. STAGE TWO ($389)
– story analysis based on the step outline.
– written notes + up to 3hs consultation.
This is the most powerful development stage, as it works on the story level, yet lays the foundations for the scenes to be (re-)written.
The step outline session can be taken after the conceptual stage, to test if you are heading the right direction with the plot, even before writing a single scene.
Once past the first draft, this stage will strip the flesh from your script and test the strength of its skeletal story.
When you take the consultancy for the first time, I will give you guidelines on how to prepare for the session.
Every professional writer will tell you you will have to go through this stage numerous times before confidently moving to the screenplay stage. Inquire about a development plan that includes a number of Stage Two session, so you can benefit from the loyalty discount.
3. STAGE THREE ($489)
– full draft script notes, prioritising areas of major concern.
– up to one hour discussion.
