What is a script doctor?
The script doctor's job covers multiple intertwined tasks, but in short, what they do is an in-depth analysis in the development stage of a script. Some of these tasks are: identifying the strengths and weaknesses in the story, reinforcing or transforming its narrative structure, developing characters and plots, discovering the hidden meanings in what is written, analysing the feasibility from the point of view of production, or identifying the potential audiences.
The script is a working document, essential to ensure the harmonious development of the subsequent creative processes. It is also vital to enroll the right people in the project and for something as crucial as fundraising.
