Can I get my script returned to me?

If you do the Development Coverage or Studio Development your script return is included in the service. If you do Regular Coverage your script is not returned.

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 prespective is subjective.

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. They dedicate their time, creativity and experience long after a script is read.

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 40 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.

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 soley a service for writers.
