Skriptease Script Consulting Services
Skriptease Script Consulting accepts for a nominal fee the submission of
original screenplays for review and consideration for representation by Vinca
Jarrett in her capacity as legal counsel and packager, providing its services to
ensure that scripts with which it affiliates are of the highest caliber. When a
script is presented and is determined to be commercially viable, Skriptease
may then recommend representation of the script by the Firm in its capacity as
packager for spec sale to producers.
Skriptease was founded in 1992 by Jarrett in response to numerous Boston-area
writers at the Harvard Square Scriptwriters program seeking her out to assist
one on one with getting scripts into shape for sale and production. Since
then, Jarrett has assisted writers all over the world, including Canada, Europe,
and around the United States from coast to coast. Focused on individual
attention to getting the scriptwriter focused on story structure and character, as
well as the commercial realities of the business, Skriptease can help writers
at all levels realize the greatest potential of the finished screenplay.
Fees are as follows:
Skriptease provides to both WGA members and non-WGA members of previously
un-optioned or sold material:
Preliminary Review of Script for $100 to evaluate value for sale or
production (this fee is waved for all currently active WGA members and
director/producers who have engaged the Firm as production counsel). This fee applies each
and every time you submit a script to us for consideration of representation,
Coverage of a script for $200, which provides a basic analysis of a script
and instructs writer generally on where rewrites need to be focused at the early
stages of development.
Thorough script evaluation for $550, which provides a complete page by page
evaluation and written evaluation of the script to assist the writer in making
substantial modifications to a script. This service is frequently used by
directors and producers who have not written a script before or are working with a
screenwriter for the first time; and by new screenwriters (who have never
sold a script before).
One-on-One development and assistance with rewriting for films in
pre-production and written on spec. Price varies.
Workshops throughout the year assisting writers with works in development get
their scripts to submission and/or production quality. WGA members who have
sold or optioned at least three (3) screenplays (feature or television) may
submit initial scripts for coverage for free upon disclosure of actual screenplay
titles, option and/or sales fees, and WGA registration numbers, as well as
evidence of WGA membership. Additionally, clients who have retained Vinca
Jarrett or the Firm for its legal services may be entitled to discounted coverage of
scripts in production during the term of the retainer if the script relates
to the legal work being conducted by the firm.
The fees listed herein are subject to change based on Skriptease current prices.
Skriptease hosts workshops for screenwriters at varying levels. Focusing on
making scripts commercial for both spec sales and production, including
attention to subject matter, story, characters and costs (of script in production),
the workshops have helped writers gear their stories to the finish line.
Writers that have participated in the workshops have gone on to win awards in
screenwriting and sell scripts. Workshops are limited to 10 people in order that the
group remain focused. Each writer will have an opportunity to present their
script twice throughout the term of the workshop. Workshops run for 8 sessions
over a 10-12 week period, allowing time for rewrites by writers.

intermediate levels only.
