Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

 For a  producer to read your script can be almost as daunting a challenge as getting beyond the blank page. But before you even think about a producer reading your script, you need to get your script past the script readers. Contrary to what you may believe, script readers want your script to be good because they want to read good scripts.

  Here are some of the highlights: 

Strong concept outweighs good structure for most production companies while agencies may put more weight on structure. Readers tend to read scripts twice, once for the story and once for the synopsis. Readers know if a script is bad by page 10.  They don't just see characters in scripts they see roles that A-list talent can play.

One most mportant thing is aspiring screenwriters should write in the genre that best showcases their voice, but know that comedy, horror, thriller and action genres sell in Hollywood. As we know  that Hollywood still spends an enormous amount of money hiring writers to develop screenplays from novels, plays, old films, treatments, magazine articles, concepts, and news stories. Occasionally studios find what they consider to be a good original screenplay and pay a considerable sum of money for it  usually after a frenzied bidding war.

 So, the question is  how so much screenplay development fail, both in Hollywood and among the smaller independent companies? Why aren’t better screenplays being developed and filmed?  My opinion is because people don’t recognize true writing talent or know how to develop it. Writers have been historically undervalued in the film business. They should to write a good screenplay takes not only an understanding of narrative and character but a knowledge of cinema. The ability to write a good screenplay is developed over time by writers who are fortunate enough to collaborate with talented directors, and the best screenplays are usually written by writers who are a little older.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
