Tommy Gushue has been working for me since December reading and doing notes on all my new material. He's the guy who reads my stuff before producers do. I've found his notes to be dead on. The kind of notes where you go, Oh, damn, he's right.
He just got into the CFC, so to raise dough, he's offering the same service to you at the following ridiculously low prices for the next month: $50 for half-hour scripts, $75 for hours, and $120 for features. You can PayPal him and email a script.
That's a hell of a lot cheaper than what I charge!Email him
before he gets too busy getting paid to write.

I'm trying to change my career from Programmer to writer(fulltime) but without any produced scripts, how does one get a gig like that? I did film studies at Sheridan a couple years ago and I've written some well recieved shorts...
By "a gig like that" you mean "charge for script notes"? You have to convince people that your notes are worth money. Without credits, it's unlikely. In Tommy's case, you can take my word for it.
The way I got that gig -- I did it for free for years until people realized I knew what I was talking about.
Then I got so busy giving out free notes to friends and other associates that I had to start charging.
I do that too, but it's just to give notes to my screenwriting friends. Last week my friend in Australia emailed me to say the notes I had given her husband a year ago were the exact ones he recieved after entering Page International's script competition recently.
I'm going to a screenwriter's meetup downtown tomorrow, they'll have some literary agents there. Maybe they'll need readers...
