Private Consultation – Book ‘Em ASAP!

The big screenplay competition deadlines are fast approaching. There’s still time to have your script professionally evaluated by TSW Director and professional script doctor Jill Chamberlain, but you need to book your consultation ASAP.

The good news:
Jill has a fast 48-hour turnaround from when she reads your script to when she gives you feedback.

The bad news:
There are only a limited number of consultation appointment dates left between now and the big spring competition deadlines!

The great news:
Jill excels at her job! With a Flat Rate Script Consultation ($350), Jill reviews and analyzes your screenplay and then discusses her recommendations and extensive script mark-up in a face-to-face (or Skype) consultation up to 90 minutes long. Her goal is to help you improve your screenplay so that it achieves its maximum impact and is the best it can possibly be.
