The site "masters" employ untrained in pilot script reading staff while charging an arm and leg for 3 reviews - $297- so don't bother. The last thing you need someone inexperienced in series bleating about your script.

Greg G. – Spec Scout Rep
Hello and thanks for taking time to provide feedback. I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your review. I'd love to address the concern regarding value and experience.

As you indicated, the $297 price gets customers three reads from our story team. Each story team member spends about 5-6 hours reading the script and writing the analysis (It can be as low as 3-4 hours for an original pilot versus a feature). In your case, the team that read your script has read over 2,100 scripts at Spec Scout alone.

After each of the three story team members reads and submits their collective 12+ pages of comments, our story supervisor reviews the work before delivering everything. For TV pilots, we can deliver that in 10 days (currently running a promotion).

So, collectively, we spend about 18+ hours (or 12+ for pilots) on every submission that comes in. Every team member has been with us for a number of years and each has a proven track record of selecting great scripts that went on to be signed, sold, and made. You can see some of our successes at http://www.specscout.com/screenwriters/#successStories.

In addition to providing coverage to newer writers, our team also actively provides notes directly to some of the most active producer, reps, and financiers in the business. Although we can't guarantee a given submission will get high scores, we pride ourselves on having a positive, constructive outlook, and on rooting for every writer who submits to succeed -- including you!

We are the only site for writers who offers a score that investors on Slated will consider. Because of the amount of time we spend on every submission and the real results we've been able to achieve since we opened in 2012, we feel very good about the value proposition we offer, and I'm sorry that didn't translate int his case. We wish you the very best of luck.

For any questions -- please feel free to email me directly! g@specscout.com

Don't recommend. James hooks you for a 6 month contract, from which he's the only one who benefits for sure. The best case scenario, your songs would show as "kept" by the studio (and you have no solid proof at all), and it could drag on for a year/longer, and it would have been enough to check the songs status just once in 3 months, logically speaking, but Jame invents the way to milk you monthly.
A typical "around the arts" scam: a sucker born every minute. Stay away.

Grains of helpful info vs. the money spent. "Considers" from execs mean or lead to nowhere, and for execs it's an easy money to make on volume. Stage32 doesn't honor time frames on their services (miss by months!).
Easy money for the site creator and some execs. I liked only 1 webinar out of 4 I bought. Won't use anymore. A typical "around the arts" gray noise site.
