“Just wanted to let you know that the screenplay I had assessed by Script Central, ‘Zealot’, found its way into the American market, which led me to one-on-one work with LA-based producer, Denise David who has worked on such films as ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and ‘ET’. I found your service very helpful and would recommend it to any writer.” Nick Burnett, Warrnambool, VIC – writer.
“David is an absolute legend. His notes for me on this draft were amazing. … honest and very very helpful. I felt he was passionate about critiquing the script, which in itself is inspiring.

“John was great not only with structure but also story lines and setting up jokes. Easy to talk to and liked my jokes! We came up for a better model for the Aboriginal Affairs TV comedy.” Fred Leftwich, writer, Lyons, ACT.
“Since I completed the first draft I’ve received over twenty comprehensive ‘Industry’ assessments including three in London. Some were super critical others glowing… some just scribbled out in haste relying on the McKee formulaic bible as gospel… None up until your assessment had a real grasp on the essence of the script… I’m buoyed that finally we have found someone who has made a concerted effort to understand the writer’s intention and articulated this in the assessment and for that I’m eternally grateful.” Neil Molloy, writer, Adelaide.

You have also provided a few very clever paths to go down in foxing these problems that I’m sure will give us much food for thought in the next draft. Your notes will prove invaluable in the development of the next draft.” Tim Maricic, writer/director, Perth, WA.

“Thanks a million for your analysis, it was so in depth and exactly what I was looking for, my biggest fear was that I’d get a skim over and a page saying that it reads good and the layout needs to be corrected. I can’t stress how much I appreciate the effort you went to.” Adam Ciancio, writer, Melbourne, VIC.
“I got your notes, Greg and found them to be excellent! I want to thank you for the tone of your comments and suggestions; it makes it a lot easier to start the task of rewriting.” Mike Yates, writer, VIC.

Thanks again for an excellent service.” Brendan Guerin, VIC – producer.
“Thank you for the promptness and thoroughness of the report. You clearly put more than a day’s work into it…” Anne Darrouzet, producer, Melbourne.
