Producers and Filmmakers come to SS, particularly the Blog Page looking for scripts. Historically they are snapped up fast.
So, I'm calling on volunteers to write Script Reviews. This is cross-promotional. The Writer of the script and their work is showcased, but you as the Reviewer also are.
Here are some guidelines Don has posted previously:
Short Script Reviews.
The purpose of the Short Script Reviews on SimplyScripts.com is to sell a script.
The reviews have to be 100% positive. If you feel the script isn't good, don't review it. It is important to maintain credibilty that the works reviewed are, in fact, quality scripts.
Items to cover in the review:
Budget or Production or contest information (LC can help with this)
About the Writer: The Writer submits a short BIO Linked to Website/other work, accolades, etc.
About the Reviewer: As Above - (this is where the Reviewer should link to their website, facebook page, your scripts, etc. People will assume that if you write a good review, then you can write a good script.) This is also resume worthy. A number of reviewers have on his/her Facebook and LinkedIn pages "Reviewer for SimplyScripts.com".
I paraphrased a bit of that blurb btw.
You don't have to be an experienced or professional reviewer. If you can write a script, you can write a Review. Word count is up to you, it doesn't have to be long, just address the pertinent points as to why it would make a great short film, what you enjoyed, tease the plot, don't give away the ending etc.
You can run it by me for any typos, layout questions etc. Or, you can submit directly to Don.
Once we get some volunteers I will also put a call out to Writers who would like their script reviewed.
I'll volunteer! Sounds like a win-win proposition. Sign me up and let me know what I need to do next. Thx for the opportunity, Libby!

Hi all, for all too, Don & LC. For those who do not know me... I have been a SS member for many years - yeah... I have been gone for as many. But, it is here where I started my now successful career. And, yeah - now it's pay-back time (pay it forward).
A brief out-take from my profile... "Barry John Terblanche here. A produced screenwriter of many years, I write across all genres and formats.
