STRUCTURE 101: beat sheet

You’ve “beated” out the A, B and C stories into a beat sheet, and now you need feedback on your structure before you move to outline/script. Your consultant will analyze your structure and give detailed written and verbal notes (30 min Zoom or phone call) to ensure you’re starting with a clear and compelling blueprint. It’s crucial you lay the proper foundation for your show or it will collapse under the weight of the notes. Examples of beat sheets will be sent to you upon commission.

$450 (4 pages for comedy or 7 pages for drama) PURCHASE

STRUCTURE 102: breaking story

“Breaking story” is your number one job in a TV writers room but it’s hard to do alone. When you’re staffed on a show you’ll have several others professionals help you. In this 6-hour-one-on-one session the consultant will help you “break” your pilot or spec story. Not only will they brainstorm the beats (scenes) with you so you get a first-hand look at what it’s like to work in a professional writers room, but you’ll also leave with a “break” of your story. In advance of your session you will send a logline, a detailed character breakdown, and a summary of the “world” the show takes place in.

$1100 (6hrs) PURCHASE

PITCH 101: room ready

You’ve come up with a show idea to pitch and you’ve either already drafted a pitch document, or you’ve used the Pitch Development Tool, and now you need feedback. The consultant, who has sold pitches, will give you detailed written and verbal feedback (30 min Zoom or phone call) on your pages to get it “room ready”. The session will provide feedback on the structure of the pitch and the overall show including the conceit, characters and viability of the show. (Limited to 12 pages)
