Rocliffe Development and Script Reports

Our Ethos

Feedback, advice and notes are like the best and worst friend: best for the work and worst for the ego. Many newer filmmakers are terrified of admitting they don't know where to turn or how to get notes - but we offer a constructive, confidential and supportive service. If you want advice we are a help line.

LEVI DAVID ADDAI (Youngers, My Murder, Coming Up): Feedback is brilliant as you can get tunnel vision. You need to finesse it and make it clearer.

    Submission Reports
    Scripts evolve through a process of investment and development by all parties through to the writing and rewriting process. When a producer or development executive is looking at your work, they are assessing if they can live with it, develop it, make it into something workable over time and invest money in it. Bring out the best in your work and show your work in the best light. Scripts are meant to be read.

    Script Reports



    Send us a logline, short treatment, character breakdowns, an introduction to the extract and ten pages of your script. These submission materials are needed to enter our forums and the process of writing these elements out provides a brilliant focus to writers looking to develop a project. We are able to then assess the project for you while giving constructive, writer-friendly development notes on how to solidify the work in its next draft. These reports offer valuable suggestions across the different project elements and can increase your confidence in submitting to the forums held at different times of the year. Perfect for first time writers. GBP75


    FEATURE & TV SCRIPTS: We offer full script development reports on feature length Film projects, up to 120 pages or TV scripts, up to 65 pages. The emphasis here is to assess various elements within the piece and focus on what can be prioritised for development going into the next draft. These reports are more detailed and concentrate on the script, providing a deeper story and script analysis. Up to 100 pages: GBP150 More than 100: GBP199.

    SHORT SCRIPTS: With the digital age allowing filmmakers to post their own content more freely than ever before, writers working in or around the form can benefit from script analysis prior to filming. As experimental as some shorts can be, the most successful pieces are aware of the short form, conventions and expectations, even if only to break them. Our reports aim to give pertinent analysis at script level. Up to 15 pages only: GBP50.

    COVERAGE REPORT: For writers who have a script that they have developed to a level they are comfortable with, this serves as a dry-run before potentially sending it out to production companies, broadcasters or competitions. This report is written by sales consultants and in the shorter coverage style employed by production companies. The emphasis here is on viability. Script analysis takes place but consideration is given to the commercial feasibility of the script in its current form. The aim of this report is to prepare the writer for the often tough and clinical assessment given at this stage, by addressing these things here, before the script goes out to decision-makers. GBP250.
