The other day I purchased an evaluation review of my tv pilot, ”Summons” through WeScreenplay. It was $69 for their basic service and the turn around is 72 hours. Flash forward to that afternoon, they had already finished my evaluation. I read through it and there are a few things that need changing, including some grammar issues, which I will address and it received a “Consider.” There are three possibilities, Pass, Consider and Recommend. Everyone wants a Recommend, but Consider means you have some work to do before its Recommend worthy, which I anticipated and am super pleased to get. I was just hoping for not Pass. They said my story concept was really good, the character arcs needed some work as well. Which is all totally manageable to correct and, hopefully, get it up to Recommend status the next time I submit for an evaluation.
Now, because of all this, and WeScreenplay having an affiliation with Coverfly.com (screenwriters platform) the judging gave my script just over 100 credits, which is substantial when you consider these factors: The first time it was evaluated, I got 102 credits, for a competition and the next time it was evaluated for a fellowship competition, it was given 36 credits. Now I have 238. With this new score, my script is listed on what they have is The Red List. It’s a list of Top 10 scripts in their genre and type, in this case, TV Horror and it is #7 right now. This was a goal of mine, to get “Summons” on The Red List, but I thought it was going to take a lot more than just one judging/evaluation. Again, I plan to make the corrections mentioned and get it reevaluated. Who knows if something similar will happen. I imagine, if it reaches Recommend that it will move up in the ranking.
For anyone considering eval with WeScreenplay, I will tell you it was worth it. The turn around time was phenominal and their association with Coverfly made it even better. 😊
I am really excited about this. A big goal of mine has been accomplished. On top of the book I published last month, another one coming out this summer, one more for the Fall (I have to write it first), another Feature script writen and in editing. Plus, “Chimera” might do well, too, seeing as it’s first contest got Finalist. Fingers crossed for a win this year, from any of my scripts. I would be elated if that happened.
Everyone have a great Friday, thanks for reading all the way through, just had to share.
