As a first-time screenplay writer, a friend in the industry recommended Industrial Scripts to me. Honestly, I didn't really know what to expect. More honestly, I suppose I was sceptical. That said, I did my due diligence, and following that, it felt right to take the plunge and share my work with Industrial Scripts.

So I've been working with IS since the middle of last year on my first project (Kitsune), which is a feature horror with an alternative take on the possession sub-genre. Rather than downloading Final Draft and leaping into 120 pages of mind-fart, I chose to work with them from my treatment right up to what is currently my third draft of the screenplay.

The experience I've had has been beyond my expectations. Not only has WX5 (my editor) provided unbiased and considered encouragement, but I've also had regular and healthy dollops of straight-talking. That is to say: it's one thing to share your work with friends and family, but quite another to share it with seasoned pros who've written and read for some of the biggest and best studios in the business.

Even though I've never met or spoken to my editor, we've developed a really great working relationship, whereby he/she truly cares about my project and is invested in it being the best it can possibly be.

I've had a crash course in screenwriting fundamentals, as well as being regularly challenged to ensure my script doesn't just become what I want from it. Rather it's grown into a hybrid between my best aspirations and a truly compelling story, with all the pace, conflict and vigour expected by a cinema-going audience.

I've just sent my third draft into IS and I'm excited to receive my next report! And I suppose that's the thing about working with these guys. I'm excited, because I know that whatever feedback comes my way in the next report, I've no doubt it will be loaded with consideration and genuine love for the project.

So in WX5, I have a readymade, super-experienced editor! An experienced partner who keeps me on track; giving me a little tough love here and there, whilst loading the feedback with authentic encouragement and support.

We writers often live a lonely existence during the crafting of those 120 pages. Imposter syndrome and fatigue are rife; and so — for me at least — working with Industrial Scripts has given me a platform to throw my ideas out there, confident that people far more experienced are ready to offer a guiding hand as and when I need it.

Hands down I recommend these guys.

I had reached the point in my writing process where I had a solid second draft yet I knew it was time to get outside input before showing my script to the industry. I've used several different coverage services in the past, yet I've had reason to question the professionalism of my readers. I was excited to find Industrial Scripts with their extensive catalog of serious reviews. I was not disappointed. My reader gave great notes that will definitely level up and add nuance to my story. My only suggestion is I found their rating system confusing and I would have liked a brief comment next to each grade. I'm looking forward to making their suggested changes to my script! Thank you, Industrial Scripts. I'll be back.

Worth the money but remember it's just a selling tool and confidence builder for you and the producer. Nothing is ever perfect. I thought the reviewer did a fine job and made some valid points. But you can be rewriting till the end if time. Take the report, accept its advice, rewrite if necessary, but don't pontificate. As ID say It's only one reviewers option. Get your work out there.

The quality of the report I received was outstanding. It was very comprehensive; the feedback was constructive, actionable and valuable. I could really feel that the reader engaged with my script.
Just one small caveat: the instructions/FAQs regarding the submission process are out-of-date. I was expecting a 2-step process (pay first then log onto DevKing to upload your script). I was actually asked to upload my script directly after paying. In the end it was a much smoother process but I was caught off guard and felt I wasted time reading the FAQs.

Pertinent and detailed notes with specific instances. Reader read and grasped the material, which with a lot of coverage services is not always the case. Thank you.

Industrial Scripts gave me notes on a treatment. They were both very good at picking up what was wrong/in need of fine-tuning and giving actionable ways of moving forward and correcting these things.

From my experience, definitely recommended.

It's hard to find such detailed, spot on, brutal, but brilliant advice written so thoughtfully to nurture and encourage writing talent, so thank you so much. As a returning client, your service, and the consultant that I've used for a couple of my script drafts so far, have been professional and precise in their attitude towards my work efforts, as well as in the way their notes are conveyed - gold dust. Reports are detailed, outlining how I need to move the project forward and improve the draft/series, which is exactly what a writer needs if they are serious about succeeding in a ridiculously competitive industry. Take time to swallow pride, then listen to and act on what is being said. Suggestions regarding comparisons to similar film and TV you may or may not have come across, helps the writer to step outside their work and see how it is being perceived by others, and to readjust if necessary. Being able to ask a focused question beforehand, also helps to provide a more personalised response. The scoring system is a sound way to see how far your projects are improving and to compare them to well-known work, in order to set personal goals for the next draft. Each score section is well-explained to further highlight the areas that need more development, so there is a clear way forward for future writing, research and tuition using their wealth of resources. Keep up the great work!

The Film Dry-Run Report was insightful and helpful. I’m definitely going to use Industrial Scrips in the future. I was impressed by the standard and level of analysis, superb.

The notes are extremely good, but let down by a terrible website submission process that requires a 5 minute YouTube video to explain it, and a slightly irritable (and huge!) FAQ section which warns you against submitting queries that are already covered, so a 14 day response v 72 hours. Better design might head off those pesky timewasters!

Hi Eveline, thanks so much for your kind words about the script notes you received from us. You'll be pleased to hear we have overhauled our script submission flow in recent weeks, and now 81% of clients are rating it as "smooth as silk"!!

We're sorry you caught the tail-end of the inferior version, and hopefully everything will be much easier for you next time. Best wishes, Ben

The reader did absorb the entirety of the script, and produced actionable notes. Thank you! I will use your services again.

Outstanding analysis -- very fair and thorough. Good suggestions, some of which I'll incorporate. Also very fairly priced, especially for the service provided. Couldn't be more pleased with the experience. Would absolutely give it my highest recommendation.

I was please with the proof reading of my script. I got the sense the reader was familiar with the material I was adapting and appreciated the little tweaks here and there to the dialog. The work on the script helped make the story flow more clear. Thank you.

I have been asked probably about 5 times this week to review the industrial scripts, Script analysis I ordered. So better leave a review!

Ok, over all I thought the analysis was accurate, valid and detailed. Not sure how they really classify the mark out of 100, but anyway...

The area I haven’t been impressed by is when emailed Numerous times about the review I enquired back to see what qualifications the reader might have? As you are only given an encrypted sudo name when assigned a consultant. And I was told they had two scripts in development. That could be basically anyone. A little frustrating as I’m not 100% sure I now whether I should implement their notes into my script or not. That being said, seems a decent service for the money.

Thanks so much for your feedback Tim! We were glad the notes proved useful. Regarding getting in touch did you raise a support ticket at the link below? If you do, the team there will get back to you very swiftly (all our support runs through that knowledge base). For a variety of reasons our consultants always work under a pseudonym, and our clients engage the company to deliver the service. We have our own internal screening and vetting processes which have resulted in us being the most reviewed script development company online. That being said, a script note, whether it's from Spielberg or anyone else, is only as good as YOU think it is! No-one has the ultimate crystal ball or silver bullet. Pro writers take on board the notes they agree with, and discard those they don't. That's all you can do in development. Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review and here's that link to our support forum >

I went for the Proofing & Polishing report. I loved what they did with cleaning up extraneous scene description and polishing the script! I thought the work done on my script was very good.

I recently submitted two scripts of very different genres and I was impressed by the separate feedback I received: insightful, thoughtful and precise. Tough to take at times too! But what made the feedback stand out was the quality of the suggestions to help to improve the next drafts. The service was well worth it.

Some of the remarks, were helpful but others seemed to conform to a certain idea what a script has to be (save the cat formula seems to be a big reference). Also a puritanical judgemental streak, colors some notes. For the amount paid, I expected more detailed and precise analysis on at least some scenes, rather than generalised judgements.

Thanks for your feedback on our service, Manu! We're always looking to improve and have taken on board your feedback. This has also been passed to the individual consultant who assessed your project. We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. Best, Ben
