Every script submitted to a studio, agency or production company gets “covered.” Readers are companies’ first and best line of defense.

Coverage is simply a reader’s report. A CI Standard Analysis consists of a logline, a detailed synopsis of the screenplay (this forces the reader to thoroughly understand the material before commenting on it,) then generally 3-6 pages of in-depth commentary and evaluation. The report concludes with a grid evaluating your screenplay from Excellent to Not So Good in 25 categories, including:

  • Main Characters
  • Minor Characters
  • Story
  • Premise
  • Plot Logic
  • Craft
  • Marketability
  • Dialogue

Finally, your screenplay is rated either “Recommend,” “Consider,” or “Pass,” for both the script itself and for the writer. See the FAQs section for more details on coverage definitions.
