SCRIPT DOCTOR (skript dok-ter): A skilled screenwriter called in to assist a film project by rewriting parts of the screenplay to improve dialogue, pacing and other elements.
In the old days, your script would be submitted to studios, networks and producers one at a time. You would get your feedback from the first person, rewrite it, then move on to the next. Those days are gone.
Now, thanks to script tracking, one submission to a major agency or studio can determine your script's fate because executives use the web to let each other know what they've been reading. "Have you read so-and-so's script, titled such-and-such? You did? It's sitting on my desktop - what did YOU think about it?" And your script might be passed on without even being read.
It is a jungle out there. Filled with carnivorous beasts in Armani suits. The way to keep your script alive is to make it your very best draft - first time out. And the best way to do that is with the help of a professional script consultant --
