72nd. St. Films is proud to offer consulting services in SCREENWRITING, PRODUCING and ACTING. All consults are available both online and in-person.
Before you send your script to a producer, agent or any industry professional, you owe it to yourself to make it the best it can be. We offers full consulting services for feature-length screenplays, short scripts, treatments and film projects.
Your script will be carefully read and evaluated for plot, subplots, structure, narrative description, dialogue, characters, format, and all aspects of Story and Storytelling.
You'll receive a professionally prepared Reader Report as well as complete Line Notes on your script.
We also offer Seated Screenplay Readings for your project where you can hear actors read your script aloud with an invited audience. Afterwards, everyone participates in a talk-back session of notes and constructive criticism designed to make your movie the best it can be.
Feature Film Scripts: $200
Short Film Scripts: $100
Discount Rates available to former students.
Readings: Depending on cast size. Contact with details for prices.
Producing ain't no big thing - it's a million little things! How do you line up all of the various elements you need to create your own film - and have it PROFITABLY distributed? Whatever stage your project is in, whether development, pre-production or post, you need to be on top of your game. And if you're in the middle of production and you need a hand - or a whole arm - now might be the time to grab a day or two and let us help you get organized and back on target.
Prices vary depending on Project. E-mail for a FREE initial consultation.
