Slated Analytics’ evaluation team has read over 10,000 feature screenplays, more than 400 of which have been produced. All of our readers have read for other entertainment industry companies prior to joining our team, and most have filmmaking experience of their own, including writing for television shows, directing award-winning films, selling television pitches to major networks, working for established producers, and working in the acquisition departments at major studios.
Our reader roster comprises men and women from varied backgrounds, ethnicities, and age groups. Readers are assigned on a double-blind randomized basis, meaning they don't know who the submitters of the projects are, and the submitters don't know who the readers are, in order to avoid any selection bias.
In order to keep Script Analysis as objective as possible on revisions, we do our best to get three fresh sets of eyes on your new draft when staff availability allows. Your new readers will consider the same set of story questions considered by your first set of readers. This ensures the writer is never accountable to one person's opinion or a fixed set of opinions. It also ensures that our assessment remains driven by story mechanics and avoids as much bias as possible. After your 3rd draft, each new draft will be handled by the freshest sets of eyes available on staff.
Scripts that have earned Recommends from our team prior to being produced include CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, A QUIET PLACE, MOONLIGHT, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA, LA LA LAND, MUDBOUND, DON’T BREATHE, THOROUGHBREDS, BAD EDUCATION, ARRIVAL and CHI-RAQ.
