Script Analysis Report Breakdown

This is the map to how our system works. Your analysis will be broken down into specific areas as shown below:

Concept / Premise / Genre: the idea.
Is this a strong concept/idea? Has the writer fully developed his/her idea? Does the premise work throughout the script or is it weak in any of the acts. Are there similar films already produced, if so, does it offer us anything new in this genre? What suggestions can the analyst offer to fix any of these problems?

Plot / Structure / Pace: the story.
Which story elements work/don't work? Which scenes work/don't work? Is the story complex or simple, does this work/not work? How is it paced? Are you pulled along into the story? Is the plot set-up well? Do you understand the plot? Does it make sense; is it plausible within the dynamics set-up? Does the script follow the dynamics of script structure successfully? What suggestions can the analyst offer to fix any of these problems?

Characters / Relationship: Lead & Supporting.
Do we empathize with our lead character or characters? Do we believe their actions and motivations? Do they have good character arcs? Are all the supporting characters integral to the story, are they used well? Do we become invested in the relationships between the characters? What suggestions can the analyst offer to fix any of these problems?

Setting / Locations:
Is the location an integral part of the story? If so, does the writer create the ambiance of the time/place well? Do we believe the characters fit into this time/era? Does the setting hinder the story in any way? What suggestions can the analyst offer to fix any of these problems?

Dialogue:
Is it original, realistic, comfortable or is it cliché , trite, awkward, clumsy? Does each character have its own individual voice? Is too much information communicated to the audience through dialogue exposition rather than actions? Is there a voice-over, does this work? Does the dialogue move the story forward or is it overwritten and unnecessary? What suggestions can the analyst offer to fix any of these problems?

Audiovisual Grammar:
Has the writer fully used the tools of screenwriting to make the script strongly visual? What suggestions can the analyst offer to fix any of these problems?

Feasibility / Marketability:
Is this script viable as a feature film in the current market? Is there an audience for this film? Is it of good enough quality both in idea and writer's ability to be presented to agents and/or producers or does the script need more or substantial rewriting and development?

Script Format & Presentation:
Has the writer understood screenplay form; style, format & structure. Are there any typos, spelling and grammar mistakes? Is the script professionally presented?
