Story Doctors acts as confidential consultants to both producers and investors on film related projects. Our analysis is not a screenplay coverage, it is an assessment of the story. At Story Doctors we view this as an essential first step in the process of determining the potential connectivity and marketability that the project offers with the audience, especially on a subliminal or subconscious level. Optimally, this consultation occurs before the investment or representation decision is finalized, although we have worked with clients downstream.
For us, marketability starts with the story and answers the question: is the story properly structured and maximized to be favorably received by both the industry and the audience?
Oftentimes, the story misses the mark and audiences leave either unfulfilled or downright disappointed, resulting in a project that doesn’t meet its financial projections, adversely affecting producers and investors alike. Other times the film is somewhat successful but doesn’t quite reach its full potential creating similar investment optimization concerns.
Poorly crafted story lines can be a real detriment to attracting and attaching talent, either above or below the line, as well as significantly limiting the pool of subordinate investors.
At Story Doctors, we understand that a film is a story told through images that spark subconscious audience recognition, acceptance and satisfaction.
In service to that goal, we are able to work with you or your associates to maximize your story’s potential so that you can optimize your investment return and enhance you reputation within the industry.
