For submissions in Hollywood, there are really just two responses: Pass or Consider. The whole idea of this site is to help make your submission a Consider. Why? For entirely selfish reasons: because I love to read great stories. Alas, most of the material I evaluate is simply not very good. And most of these projects seem to fail for many of the same reasons: thin plotting, familiar characters, weak dialogue, and a lack of creative set pieces.
I’ll do everything I can on this site to help you avoid the pitfalls that I see projects stumble into time and time again. I’ll also give you a ton of suggestions for what you should be watching and reading for inspiration. Thanks for reading!
