2014-03-08 15.56.54 Script Reader/Editor assess whether screenplays are professionally crafted, and write a Reader’s Report (or ‘coverage’ report). The typical Reader’s Report is 4-8 pages long and typically contains the following elements:

 

Logline – a one line summary of the central proposition of the film

· Premise – an analysis of the originality and commercial potential of the central concept

· Synopsis – a one page breakdown of the story

· Tone and Genre – an analysis of whether the writing matches the intended tone and genre

· Comments – two or more pages of comments detailing the strengths and weaknesses of the Concept, Premise, Plot (and subplots), Structure, Character (and in some cases possible casting), Dialogue, and Technical execution.

· Summary and verdict
