Learn the secret to becoming a Hollywood Gatekeeper!
It’s true! Nearly all Hollywood film companies use “readers” to evaluate scripts before spending thousands, and even millions, of dollars on a motion picture.
Scripts are submitted to the companies and the reader is the first person to read and consider the project. Then the reader makes a recommendation to the company regarding the potential of the script becoming a popular movie. Hence, readers are often referred to as the “Gatekeepers” of Hollywood.
The bulk of the work is done online, which means you no longer have to live in Los Angeles to be a reader.
Yes! It’s an actual job.

Are you polishing your screenplay?
Are you starting to raise money?
Is this you….? You’ve had your script covered and then cringed at the results? Have you heard your colleagues asking, “Where do they get these readers?”
Do you want to get your movie off the ground?
Before you spend a single dime on craft services….get an unbiased opinion.
Not from your mom. Not from an intern who really wishes they could be on set somewhere. Get an opinion. From a professional.
