REVIEWS --
"Taking Steven's course jump started my project.  He has helped me craft all phases of the script from finding the story to creating the characters.  His talent, generosity, and support are unmatched.  I am a first time screen writer, and I am thrilled to be accomplishing my vision in so short a time.  Arvanites is truly a star!"
JANE RANZMAN- WRITER


"Steven did a wonderful job in assessing what was right and wrong in my script.  His coverage was amazing!  Not only did he provide detailed notes, but he spent time on the phone with me going over what worked and what didn't.  And he gave me suggestions on how to fix it. Taking a quote from "Analyze This": "You have a gift ... yes, you do. Yes, You Do!

SCRIPT ANALYSIS

 
My Most Popular Service


Why You Need My In -Depth Analysis  
A Coverage Report is the standard industry tool used by the Hollywood executive to determine which scripts they will read and which will be tossed.  Most often you never see this critique.  It’s filed away and you’re left asking, “what happened?”  Don’t take that risk, Hollywood doesn't read a script twice!


Any material that enters the Hollywood system gets tracked and if one major studio or producer passes, the negative feedback can spread like a ripple on a pond and your work is soon dead all over town.  Don't give them a chance to say "no", hit them with your best possible work, the first time!

TO GET THE COVERGE YOU NEED FOR A $ALE, FIRST YOU NEED IN-DEPTH SCRIPT ANALYSIS

My analysis is private; no one else will ever see it.  I email it directly to you.  My turnaround time for coverage is 7-10 business days. 

OVERREACHING NOTES: (emailed at the end of our session) analyzing overreaching issues including: STRUCTURE ISSUES, DAILOUGE and a MARKETABLITY REPORT.

ANALYTICAL REWRITE PLAN:  After we identify the trouble spots, I give you a blueprint forward to create a final draft that will knock your script outta the park and into the hands of a producer.

LINE EDITS: I pen mark your script to include grammar/spelling goofs, continuity problems and instant impressions; all valuable tools for your successful rewrite.

However, what makes my service unique is my one hour+ phone talk time.
 
I brainstorm script solutions, solve "story rot" and provide creative alternatives for what ails your script.  I never judge I only help.

These aural tools provide the foundation for your script revision

WEEK ONE PROJECT:

Concept Generation

We discuss: idea, theme, story, genre, marketability, goals and writer's block issues.  I am your mentor, muse and script therapist.  I will compassionately listen and address your professional scripting needs.

 Included: 75 "Office Hour" Minutes  (in person or on phone)

The foundation -- the blueprint -- the ground floor of your script.  It will inform all our course work to come.

With these essential elements in place we can now start structuring and detailing your idea into outlining.

WEEK SIX PROJECT:

Show Time!

We take a two-week hiatus.

During this time you use our six weeks of private coaching and encouragement to write a comprehensive first draft of your script. 
I assure you from my teaching experience this is not only feasible but doable.  With our intensive preparation complete, the actual writing will be the fun part; your validated license to create.


Then –

I take over.  I read your script, provide analysis, constructive critique and comprehensive analytical notes.

Lastly –

We devise a “battle plan” for your second draft and discuss the smartest way to market your finished project.
