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. Please let me know what you’re struggling with, and what’s here that you find most helpful. Thanks for reading!
