Story Doctors acts as confidential consultants and manager, to both writers and their representatives on film and story 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 with and marketability to the target audience that the project offers, especially on a subliminal or subconscious level. Optimally, this consultation occurs before the work has been offered to the marketplace, although we have worked with clients downstream.
If you have a story you would like us to consider, you can schedule a consultation here.
For us, marketability and audience connection 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, even though well-structured and elegantly written, the screenplay’s story can miss the mark causing producers and investors to either pass on the project completely or commission additional rewrites, oftentimes without initial creator input. In an industry where reputation and perception are major driving factors, this often overlooked step of story validation relative to the subconscious connectivity with the prospective audiences can make the difference not only for project acceptance, but the potential for a greater voice in downstream control and development.
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 and insure that the story provides the best resonance possible with prospective audiences and industry professionals including producers, investors and additional talent.
Once we have the story resonance down, we help you find a way to get your story published or produced.
