Q. Does Extreme Screenwriting provide studio-style coverage?
A. No. Extreme Screenwriting's reviews are developed based on specific requests from producers. Studio-style coverage provides vague references. For example, it might indicate the plot fails to deliver. While this information is helpful to a producer in determining if he'll purchase the script, it doesnt' help the writer fix the script. Our reviews specify, by page #, exactly where the plot fails to deliver and how to fix it. For more information on Extreme Screenwriting's reviews, see Script Services page.
Q. What happens when you're producing or directing a film? Does Extreme Screenwriting close for busines?
A. Extreme Screenwriting will post its monthly closure, if any due to production, in the monthly newsletter and the email will send out an automatic response with the date the service is anticipated to resume.
Q. Why is Extreme Screenwriting's prices so low compared to other script services?
A. Because Extreme Screenwriting makes its money primarily from production company coverages and film/tv productions. We don't give away freebies (except the monthly newsletter) because we want writers to place value on their trade, but being the only service to handle coverage for production companies allows us to keep costs low to writers and assures we're up to date on industry selling trends.
Q. Will Extreme Screenwriting be increasing costs in the future?
A. No. We do not anticipate raising rate anytime in the near future.
Q. Does Extreme Screenwriting provide industry referrals?
A. Yes. Recommended screenplays and clients who've had recent successes, like contest placements are promoted (for free) in our monthly newsletter that has hundreds of producers, production companies, directors, actors, agents/managers and screenwriters that subscribe to it.
Clients with market ready screenplays can also be referred to our base of industry contacts that have subscribed to receive the VIDEO QUERY E-BLAST. See VIDEO QUERY E-BLAST page for details regarding this service.
Q. How many of Extreme Screenwriting's clients have gained representation, optioned a script or have any ever had a film made?
A. Extreme Screenwriting averages 30-60 clients a year that gain representation, option or sell a feature films and/or TV project, and we recently broke an industry record (among coverage services) for the most client successes in one month with 18 TV and Film projects on the air and/or in theaters in February 2019.
Q. How is Extreme Screenwriting's service different from other coverage services?
A. We are the only coverage service that caters to aspiring writers, professional writers, producers, production companies and others in the entertainment industry. We are the only ones with a Video Query E-Blast service with producers that have subscribed to receive the E-Blast. We provide a unique review that was designed based on the criteria set by producers. We are also the only coverage company that provides ghostwriting to industry producers and writers. Finally, we provide writers with polished material the opportunity to have their work considered by industry professionals via our newsletter promotions and our Video Query E-Blast.
