I occasionally do screenplay critiques
, but I charge quite a bit. I also recommend my veteran development exec friend Victoria Lucas
. She charges a lot less, and she's quite good.
I want to add one more name to the mix. Tommy Gushue
is a young guy who gives really excellent notes, and he charges $150 for a feature. You would not know it to look at his credits, but when I've asked him to read my own stuff, he's repeatedly put his finger on structural issues that I hadn't noticed. Someone should hire him as their development guy, but in the mean time his services on the open market. He will also put his voluminous knowledge of TV at your disposal.
So if you need script analysis, but you don't have a lot of money to spend, go see Tommy G. He can save you quite a lot of time and frustration, and help you bring your material to another level.

I almost started a friendly critique of the Alex's sales pitch (every good pitch is a story, no?), when a thought crossed my mind: Wouldn't it be better if Tommy Gushue showed his class and gave that critique instead of me?
Or, if he can't (maybe he's too shy to critique Maitre Epstein publicly), perhaps other screenwriters can take on the challenge? Eh? Show your skills! Potential clients like me are watching.
Is there anyway I could get your email, or something because i have a question, and i believe you are the one who could answer it for me. Thank you.
@Brittany: sure, there are many ways. You could search for me on LinkedIn or Facebook. The easiest way is probably to look on my website.
