Script Coverage is a filmmaking term used for the analysis and grading of screenplays often within the script development. While coverage may remain entirely verbal, it usually appears as a composed report, guided by a rubric that changes from company to company.
Script coverage criteria include the following:
- Identification: Title, Author, Type of Material, Locale, Genre
- Logline: A one sentence summary
- Comment summary: A paragraph summary of the analysis
- Grade: Excellent, Good, Fair, Poor for categories that include characterization, premise, storyline, production values, dialogue and more
- Synopsis: Summary of plot: 1-3 pages depending on script quality
- Budget: The script reader's estimated budget
