How can I protect my work?

Scriptapalooza strongly recommends that writers protect their work and register their scripts with the Library of Congress.

What is “industry” standard for my script?

The font should be courier and the font size 12. Page total should be between 90-120 pages.

What if I need my script returned before the 2-3 week turn around?

There is a RUSH JOB with a turnaround under a week. There is an additional fee of $50.00 for the RUSH JOB.

What if I don't agree with my coverage report?

Your script will be read and evaluated by an industry professional. You may not like certain aspects of your report but keep in mind the reader is using their experience, opinions and suggestions to the best of their abilities to help you improve your script, and that their perspective is subjective.

When I send in my script for coverage, will my ideas/characters/storyline be safe?

Yes. Your script remains 100% confidential. We have been doing coverage since 2002 and have never had an issue. Your screenplay will only be read by our reader.

Do the same people who read the scripts in the competition write the coverage reports?

No. The Coverage Service Department hires only industry professionals who write coverage reports for a living.

If I get a RECOMMEND on my coverage will you send it out to producers?

Yes, if you coverage comes back from the analyst with a RECOMMEND...we will send the coverage to over 75 producers (with your permission). And again, we are not attached to the script in any way. If the producer wants to contact you, we will give them your contact information. Scriptapalooza Coverage is only a service for writers.

Why don't other coverage services send RECOMMENDS to producers, like you guys?

Because other services don't have the connections and relationships we have built since 2002.

Can I work with the same analyst over time?

Absolutely. Just before you re-submit your screenplay, just let us know that you would like the same analyst.

I live out of the country, can I still submit?

Yes. We accept international script submissions paid in US funds.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. The transaction must be done through our website using our PAYPAL service, which is a secure site. Or you can call our office and pay over the phone.

Do you accept email submissions?

We only accept email submissions. Please attach your script to the application when filling it out.

What if my script is longer than 120 pages?

Industry standard script length is 90-120, so if your script is longer, we will charge you $1 extra for each additional page. Please contact us before you submit.

After you finish my coverage, is Scriptapalooza attached to the script? Or if you send my coverage and script to a production company is Scriptapalooza attached or get a percentage of the sale?

No. We are NOT attached in any way. We are solely a service for writers.

Can I request a reader that specializes in a certain genre?

Yes you can. Just email us after you submit with the initials of the analyst.

Do you do coverage on novels?

Yes, we do, please email our office for details.
