Story Diagnosis


One-hour story consultation about critical aspects of your script such as protagonist, POV, theme, inner/outer journey, plot, genre etc., based on an industry standard 1-page synopsis and 25-word logline.
Don’t waste your time on flawed script drafts until you get this right.



1st-time clients, use code “WELCOME” and pay only $99!

In-depth story analysis of your logline and synopsis.

One-hour Skype/phone discussion about critical story issues such as protagonist, POV, inner/outer journey, key turning points etc., based on a one-page (5oo words max) synopsis and 25 word logline.  Without this early analysis, you risk having to completely re-write your screenplay over and over again.  If requested, I will also look at style and structure of the synopsis in itself to enhance its selling quality.

Essential before —
– writing the next draft
– sending a query letter
– pitching your screenplay

How it works…

Step 1: make payment 

– fee: $99 (this rate is only available to new clients)
– methods accepted: PayPal, Bank Transfer, Credit Card(**)

Step 2: prepare for the session, using the Synopsis Pack

Once you have made payment, you will be directed to a page where you can download the Synopsis eBook and Checklist, and get access to the Synopsis Webinar. This will help you to write the best possible, industry-standard synopsis.

Step 3: send your synopsis & logline

Once you have reviewed the synopsis in accordance with the eBook and webinar, please email it to Karel together with the logline. Please also include your Skype ID (*).

Step 4: schedule the consultant session

Karel will get in touch via email to propose a few dates and times for the session.
These will most likely fall within 7am and 7pm Sydney time. This is 2pm – 2am PST.

Step 5: let’s talk about your story!

On the day, Karel will call you at the designated time. He will record the session and send you a download link, so you don’t need to frantically note everything down. (**)
The fee covers a 1 hour consultancy. Any additional time will be invoiced at $50 per half hour or part thereof.
