"Your notes were fantastic. Incorporated many of your suggestions, As of this writing, the script you helped me on, "Born Under A Lucky Star," has made it to the finals of StoryPros International.

"Thank you for your great coverage which I plan to incorporate into the next draft." - Stephanie, Violets

"I am very pleased with the job your Analyst did with my script, including a number of helpful suggestions as to what worked and what didn't, as well as proposing specific revisions and improvements. Of course the ultimate compliment will be sending you more work, which I plan to do in the next few days." - Scott Allan, Saiman Two Tickets
"Thank you so much! I think my Analyst did a great job! The notes are spot on as well as the logline and synopsis. I will definitely take all the suggestions into consideration. A lot of wonderful stuff. I know my script will be raised to a higher level with the next rewrite. You guys are on the top of my list for script analysis." - George Covic, Secrets of Men

My only conundrum will be in finding an answer to the pacing dilemma for act III, the scene in the jazz-era hell... All the best." - Rafal Zlak, Astro Sun
"I think AWS Analysts must love a great deal what they do. Only that can make such a refined and devoted, functional Analyst. My Analyst got involved with this convoluted story to such a professional degree, that it really helps me to clarify to myself certain things regarding this script. I was happy to understand that my Analyst had technically deconstructed to the last extent, the whole plot, with objective, scientific arguments. Not to mention the low price you do it for, and despite that English is not my first language." - Corneliu Filip, Counterpart
"My Analyst's notes were fantastic. We're working on a rewrite now incorporating much of what was highlighted in the analysis. To be sure, when this draft is complete we'll be sending it back to AWS for another pass." - Lawrence Kennelly, The Snowmen
"I'm very pleased with the analysis. The overall evaluation is just the type of positive affirmation my writing partner and I were hoping to receive. We've been working hard, having just completed our fourth script together, hoping to get them all into fighting shape for upcoming contests and submissions to agents/managers. The recommended log line and synopsis were very strong -- much better than what we currently have. The suggestions/notes were spot on and the grammar/formatting helpful." - Lawrence Kennelly, Man With Cross
“This is really great! The macro note is exactly what I am working on now, so it's good to have that reinforced. How amazing to have the synopsis and logline offered as well - the price would cover these aspects alone, but having them included is a real plus. And the additional comments about its marketability strength is very encouraging. I will now permanently add your service to the steps I take when developing a script. I hope to have a new draft in a couple days - will be in touch then.” – Rebecca Ortese, Estranged
"Oh wow, this coverage just made my day. I knew from the last analysis that he is smart, has terrific writing skills, and has excellent taste/judgment. So I'm incredibly happy that he had such wonderful things to say about The Lobsterman's Son. At the same time, he once again provided me with a lot of outstanding suggestions for improvement, along with an intriguing logline and well-written synopsis. So glad I don't have to write one myself! Your service is the best deal around, and you can quote me on that." - Margie Kostrubala, The Lobsterman's Son
"I am so pleased with the coverage and with your reader's ability to identify problems that I'm send the revised script back to you. He/she found 18 specific area's where the script could be improved. Nothing got by him/her. You don't get second-chances in Hollywood. Your service is terrific." - Drenon Carlyle, Santa's Little Helper
"Wow, you are fast! The AWS coverage is fantastic and will be very useful in our final tweak. Please thank our analysis for his excellent work - the notes were spot on and I really appreciate the suggestions for fixing problems - he doesn't just point them out. This week our agent is sending out another script that AWS covered for us to a few producers and said it was our best work yet. She was really funny and said, "Am I just imagining things or were there absolutely no typos in that script?" My partner and I were high fiving each other and knew that its pristine shape was due to our analyst's excellent proofreading. He's our secret weapon. Thanks again!" - Heather Hughes
"Thank you for the fast turnaround and great feedback. The overall evaluation is encouraging, and tells me the story is on the right track. The analysis shows that the important parts of the script (particularly character, structure and plot) are mostly working, and the suggestions for improvement and specific character & dialogue notes are excellent and have given me some new ideas to rev things up. The logline and synopsis my AWS Analyst provided are also well-written. Overall, I'm very happy with my feedback and consider it an excellent value." - Margie Kaptanoglu, Behind the Curtain
"I'm blown away. Thanks, and kudos, to your Analyst, for the incredibly helpful, honest and right-on analysis. As a writer, I think the hardest perspective is on my own work -- to get the critical, professional eyes of your analysts gives a perspective I can get nowhere else. I think of your service as a group of expert trail guides, who help us struggling writers who don't know the signs of the forest, to help lead us out of confusion and uncertainty, to point the way, recognize the signs, and as a result, we become that much better on the next hike. Thank you, again. To be continually amazed and blown away is such a gas!" - Steve Solomon, Angel Bands
"Thanks for the feedback, as this was my first draft of this idea and I did want an expert opinion before I did a re-write. I was very happy to see that my Analysis pointed out some things that I had a gut feeling was missing in the story, and my Analyst definitely got the "feeling" I was going for. So I feel now that I am on the right track to making this script really good." - June Escalante, Honey Child
"The analysis was so heartening, so balanced, and so helpful. I cannot thank you, and the analyst, enough. The work that you and your analysts produce has been so inspirational to me. It raises the bar for me to reach higher, improve, and grow as a screenwriter." -Steve Solomon, David V. ,TV Pilot
"After reading the AWS analysis for Tales of Orenda, one word sums up my response: "WOW!" It is so rewarding to have my AWS analyst "get" the story and enjoy the characters. The greatest compliment I've received to-date about my writing was that characters were crafted so compelling that even though killed off, I should "bring them back!" I especially appreciated the suggestions for character tweaks, storyline focus. This aids my re-writes so incredibly, and provides a wonderful framework for writing the entire series." – Steve Solomon, Tales of Orenda
"What a marvelous job by my AWS analyst! I truly appreciate credit for the positives of the script, and the constructive suggestions for improvement. It was an incredibly thorough and thoughtful analysis. This feedback will re-animate my editing efforts, and produce a much better script." Thank you! - Steve Solomon, The Gift of Me
"The screenplay analysis from AWS was scary good! Every suggestion made perfect sense and opened up incredible opportunities to improve elements necessary for the story to work. I'll be sending treatments in soon, too!" - Julie Gribble, Jessica and the Manor House Spy, NY Media Works
"It was so wonderful to hear the reviewer's summary of my plot, characters and scenes: the feedback helps me gauge whether or not I'm succeeding in my writing. The Analysis was very balanced, constructive criticism, and praise, which, honestly, buoyed my spirit as a writer! This story was very close to my heart, and I created this short in a couple weeks. You have found an enthusiastic supporter of your service! **Update: I want to thank you and the screenwriter that gave me coverage for my short script, Angel Bands. I just found out that I was a top winner, taking 3rd place for best short script in the 2010 Calif. Film Awards competition! I could not have achieved that success without the valuable input provided by AWS.**" - Steve Solomon, Angel Bands

"I attended the Writers Boot Camp school in Los Angeles, a few years back and while I was there, I heard from several of my colleagues (an ex-Marine and a film producer) that they had received coverage from AWS that was really spot on, and they believed it really complimented their work. You can definitely quote me on that." - Dominic Daniel, Skinned, Rock City Films
"Thank you so much, I am super happy with your service, and I'll tell everybody that I know how awesome that it is. The notes were spot on and gave me great feedback.

"Thank you for the fast response ;-) and I completely agree with all of your analyst's comments. I have never taken a screenplay class, and just bought a screenplay program and wrote my first script.

"Thanks for the quick response! You and your readers did a good job on my script analysis. It was apparent a lot of time was spent on the script, and that it was read thoroughly.

We'll definitely be back." - Curtis Burdick, Rodney & Jerry: Grave Robbers

“Your “studio reader’s” style of presentation provides insight as to how my script would be received and criticized by a producer. The suggested edits were meant to polish the script into a more producible presentation. Your analyst obviously spent as much time on the last page as the first, which is rare in coverage.” - Christopher Canole, Felix the Flyer
“Your analyst quickly spotted the areas to improve in the script, and the incomplete character arcs; provided detailed coverage and development suggestions; added several do's and don'ts in format and spelling, and noted some movies for me to view again the same genre as the script; I got some insights I hadn't really considered, as well as a useful constructive critique.” - Marco Guarda, Prince Spider
"Your analyst went into in-depth coverage describing the weak-points and strong-points of the script. The synopsis sums the story up perfectly, and doesn't miss a beat. The dialogue notes were concise, and allowed fixes to be made immediately. The suggestions take on a flight of their own, to go beyond what you imagined, to make I believe, a better story." - Christopher Stamatelos, Man In White
“I loved the AWS analysis and will definitely be returning for more. It was well worth the money. Your analyst offered many suggestions that gave me food for thought, I was especially impressed with the last page, where a list of Actors envisioned for the roles of my characters, was included. I actually had to go to Imdb to look some of them up.” - Elizabeth Pfeiffer, Dropping In
"I just wanted to thank you for the great notes. The analysis was worth the wait, and as usual, you did a stellar job and I look forward to sending you more work in the future. - Elizabeth Pfeiffer, Red Gold

"Thank you very much for the very detailed and extremely helpful analysis! As a first time writer a service like yours is very helpful and I am positive that my script will be better as a result of it. I would say it is worth every penny but considering how well priced you are I think what I got back would have been a deal at twice the price. I would not only use your service again but will likely re-submit my script once I've made suggested changes. Thanks again!" - Jason Amelio, Green Fees
"I appreciate the quick turn around and spot on analysis. I also like how it's focused on improving the script with excellent suggestions. Many thanks, I'm sure I'll be using your services again." - Scot Byrd, Fleurette
"Once again I received amazing results from your coverage service. This Analysis was exactly what I was looking for: hard creative constructive criticism. I was lost in a sea of screenwriting resources, but have regained my bearings through AWS. And as usual the turnaround was at warp speed. I can honestly say that the purpose of your service is to give wholeheartedly affordable screenplay analysis that is directed at making the writer better; and I now believe that from the analysis I have received it will lead to being successful with my script. I know I still have a lot to learn, and as soon as I can acquire the funds to participate in the mentoring program I will. I would like to thank my Analyst, for I can tell he gave me more than what was required, and I would gamble to say that your service is one of the best deals in the industry." – Jeff Jones, The Lazarus Grid
"I really liked the analysis; it was very detailed and specific to the pros and cons of the script. The evaluation was spot on as to feedback I had received from industry insiders, and the suggestions for improvement were really specific to the genre." - Dominic Daniel, Skinned, Rock City Films
