manuscript & screenplay critiques

What to Expect

Every Mission Ranch Films Critique includes a thorough evaluation of story structure and arc, character development, craft and artistry, visual storytelling skills, and writer strengths and challenges.

Your project will be returned to you with notes and comments in the margins, so you’ll know specific areas you need to address.

Each critique also comes with a one-hour phone appointment with Zena, who will walk you through your story, explain what works and what doesn’t, and give you clear and no-nonsense guidance.

So even if your story is not yet ready for publication or production, you’ll know exactly what you need to do next.


COST: $499 for manuscripts up to 60,000 words.
(For projects longer than 60,000 words, add $99 per 10,000 words.)


COST: $299 for screenplays up to 120 pages.
(For screenplays longer than 120 pages, add $10 per 10 pages.)
