Script Service

We have been busy evaluating and improving film scripts since the 1980’s.
Every year our team evaluates around 180 film scripts that are looking for financing on the international film markets. Since 1988 more than 3000 film scripts have been read, evaluated or improved or rewritten or written as ghosts.

Short script analysis for safer investment

Our multilingual team prepares reading reports or short analysis of 180 film scripts each year. Sales companies or producers are looking for license pre-sales with these scripts on the markets. At big film festivals and markets, such as in Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Toronto, Los Angeles, etc., a quick, clear and inexpensive assessment can prove invaluable and saves money. In case of time pressure, we establish a reading report within hours. At the film markets in Cannes and Berlin we are sur place.

Detailed script analysis with 97% prediction accuracy

Our extensive and meticulous 3-part analysis of film scripts is aimed particularly at those projects that are to be developed at a professional level.

dfk*films’ very own sso-method | *40-steps-method is the base upon which we build the most objective analysis possible. It keeps unwarranted views, opinions, preferences, and feelings out of the analysis. One can think of the method as a short form of psychoanalysis. Only with proper identification should the tastes, preferences, opinions, world view and values of an analyst appear in a professional evaluation of a film script.

Our approach comes to its culmination in our extensive, uncompromising and invaluable 3-part screenplay analysis. A serious and accurate evaluation of this kind is primarily commissioned by producers, investors and sometimes filmmakers, to make a good script great. They are investing in the development of the story and script, to elevate and widen the prospects of that project’s success on the market. This thorough and penetrating analysis serves as a point of departure for script-doctoring and rewrites as well as a basis for decision making for investors.
