Script Evaluation: £300
Occasionally writers, producers, directors and executives want a reading of a script to determine whether it’s worth pursuing for consultation. This service includes a reading of the script and a one-page report on commerciality, general strengths and weaknesses and a recommendation about whether to proceed to a consultation.
Story Idea Consultation: £400
Bella will analyse story, characters, and theme on 4-6 story ideas of 1-3 paragraphs each. She’ll provide possible marketability for each idea, guiding the writer to pursue the idea with the most potential.
Recession Special: £500
Due to its popularity, the Recession Special has become permanent even when the recession ends. The client has a choice between a 5-6-page written report with suggestions for some additions, subtractions, and changes for the rewrite — OR a one-hour phone call with Bella. This does not have the detailed analysis of the more expensive services, yet it gives a good guide to the rewrite, with specific suggestions for solving problems, as well as an analysis of the talent of the writer and next steps.
Script Overview Plus Script Notes: £1200
Includes a 12-15 page report plus written notations directly on the script which reinforce the report and add additional details. The Script Notes that Bella writes include suggestions for scenes that could be cut or condensed, improving script transitions, dialogue that could be clearer, possible character changes, scene transitions and where to insert story changes.
Re-Read Script After Rewrite: £500
Bella will re-read the rewrite and provide polish notes after rewrite.

The Annotated Script: £2000
