More than just coverage

Slated's Analysis is the only screenplay review proven to predict great movies. You just need a completed feature script to get started.

Script Analysis

Slated's Script Analysis gives you an accurate indication of how producers, talent, and investors will respond to your script. You'll also get tons of constructive feedback for ways to make the draft stronger. That includes 10+ pages of incredible notes, plus a Script Score on a 100-point scale.

Our seasoned story analysts have each evaluated hundreds of produced and unproduced movies for studios, production companies, management companies, and agencies. Each story analyst is well versed in recent market material, and goes through a months-long training process prior to joining the Slated Analytics team.

Script Analysis has proven invaluable to hundreds of filmmakers, and helps immensely in the development process. The scores and feedback are always confidential unless you choose to share them. Script Scores can be used to attract the best producers and investors.

How it works

Screening Analysis

Slated's Screening Analysis for narratives and documentaries is a first-of-its-kind, secure, convenient, and cost-effective virtual test screening that gives filmmakers early insight into how their film could fare with festivals, sales companies, distributors, and audiences, and even critics, which you can get before the film is ever exposed.

Like Script Analysis, Screening Analysis gives you 10+ pages of incredible notes from Slated's development staff, plus a Screening Score. The scores and feedback are always confidential unless you choose to share them, and can be used to attract sales and distribution.

Financial Analysis

Slated Analytics’ machine-learning based financial projections have been derived by analyzing the performance factors of more than 10,000 released films in minute detail. By arming yourself with the most meaningful comparative data, you and your team will have the earliest intelligence on what to expect from the marketplace at every stage in your project’s development cycle, from packaging to financing to sales. You’ll also demonstrate your professionalism and market awareness to potential investors.

You can also use simulations to confidentially see the impact of adding any cast, crew, companies, budget, and soft-money commitments you can conceive.

Your project’s Financial Analysis report also includes sensitivity analyses for the key elements that impact revenue.

Team Analysis

The Team Score reflects the strength of the project’s team, on a 100 point scale, based on the Individual Scores of the key talent and companies attached to the project.

Individual Scores are an estimate of each person’s potential to impact the commercial and artistic viability of the project. They are based on a blend of box office revenues and awards, adjusted for inflation and weighted towards more recent releases.

The combined chemistry of team members matters in the marketplace. Generally, the higher the project’s Team Score, the higher the return on investment.

"Slated's script analysis is, by far, the most comprehensive and professional coverage out there. Our clients are always thrilled with the thorough feedback."

Nikki Stier Justice

Distribution Executive
(Loving Vincent, To Dust, Extra Ordinary)
"As investors we’re constantly searching for projects that stand out of a crowded market. Slated made it easier than ever before to find a winning project."

Justin Begnaud

Executive Producer & Investor
(Super Troopers 2, Chef)
"Thanks to Slated’s Screening Analysis, we discovered DOMINO: BATTLE OF THE BONES, acquired it and gave it a targeted theatrical release. We couldn’t be more thrilled."

Marcy Hamilton

TriCoast Worldwide
"Slated is an invaluable resource to indie filmmakers like myself. When one of our scripts scored well, Slated's EP team immediately engaged, and they have been supporting me as a filmmaker ever since, even introducing financing and distribution to our movie."

Ricky Fosheim

(Pure O)
"There is nothing out there like Slated. I submitted my project for Script Analysis and, when the script scored well, Slated's EP Team reached out and began providing strategic guidance as I put together the package. They ultimately introduced both financing and distribution to the film."

Mike Stern

"I got my feedback and I have to say…I have submitted to every screenwriting contest from Nicholl to Austin, and none of them have ever given me a write up as comprehensive and on point as I got from Slated. Slated, right out of the gate, really crushed it."

Wade Wofford

Frequently asked questions

Is analysis required for me to list a film on Slated?

No, you can list a film on Slated without purchasing analysis. Your project score will include a team score based on your verified attachments, but will be incomplete. Many of our investors set minimum script/project score limits in their interests, so your opportunity matches will be limited.   

Does Slated Analytics estimate sales to distributors?

No. Slated Analytics’ projections are estimates of the overall financial potential for your project at the consumer retail level, not how much a distributor might offer as a minimum guarantee for the rights to a specific format or territory.

Can you give more detail about how your reviewers assess each script or screener?

In a nutshell, your Script or Screening Score indicates the quality of your project: The higher your score, the better. Three reviewers evaluate each script or screener thoroughly, then provide an Overall rating on the “Pass / Consider / Recommend” spectrum and assign numerical scores for ten individual attributes of the material. The scoring formula weights some categories more heavily than others. Each reviewer’s ratings are converted into a score on a scale of 1 to 100, which are then combined to determine the Script or Screening Score.

What is the Likelihood Certified Fresh percentage, how is it calculated, and how does it relate to scores?

The Likelihood Certified Fresh percentage is the probability that a project will receive the Certified Fresh accolade from Rotten Tomatoes*, a key driver of a film's financial performance.

Following a study showing the likelihood of a movie being Certified Fresh, profitable, and Oscar worthy, Slated's data science team built an estimator allowing all film industry participants to know the likelihood of a movie being Certified Fresh at the point of development. The estimator leverages Script or Screening Score, Team Score, and other key data points to generate the estimate.

This likelihood percentage is calculated as part of our Financial Analysis service, designed to help filmmakers show the true market potential of a project.

*Slated is not affiliated with Rotten Tomatoes.

What if I don’t agree with the Script or Screening Analysis?

There’s no getting around the fact that story analysis is inherently subjective. Slated Analytics designed its process to be as objective as possible by applying the same set of rigorous standards to every script or screener, based on the criteria that buyers and reps themselves use to judge material. No matter how ‘original’ a script or screener may appear to the casual observer, the industry will instinctively look for meaningful comparisons when evaluating its storytelling elements. Slated Analytics’ story analysis anticipates that industry evaluation process for your benefit as writers, filmmakers, and producers.

Whether the coverage lauds your project or recommends further development, the points made will reference tried-and-true storytelling principles and cite specific examples (with page numbers or timecode) from the script or screener. And either way, displaying your Script or Screening Analysis to potential investors and partners is completely up to you. At the very least, the analysis will help you determine the most meaningful comparisons for your project and provide you with an early read on the industry’s likely response. After all, forewarned is forearmed.

How accurate are Slated Analytics financial projections?

The Slated Analytics team constantly reviews and improves its models to ensure their accuracy and efficacy in a constantly evolving market.

The dataset includes financial elements (production and marketing budget), creative elements (genre and MPAA ratings), marketing elements (release date and theater count), and dozens of other data points, including team composition and script or screener quality.

The team is constantly expanding the reference data set and improving Slated Analytics’ algorithms to make sure its models remain as accurate as possible. Not only has this system been shown to be more accurate than current industry tracking, but it does so as early as the greenlight stage. That said, as anyone who knows statistics and portfolio theory can attest, the broader the sample set, the more reliable the associated projections can become.

How will my Script, Screening, and/or Financial Score impact my project’s Project Score?

While the exact weighting of each component score within the Project Score is proprietary, the Project Score will definitely increase when your Script, Screening, and/or Financial Analysis is delivered. The very fact that you have submitted your project for rigorous evaluation demonstrates professionalism and market awareness, both of which send out strong industry signals. How much your Project Score increases depends on the quality of your script or screener and financial prospects as they relate to expected production and marketing costs.

Are there example analyses to review?

Yes! We have 200+ sample analyses available. For each project, be sure to select the Script/Screening tab to see the Script or Screening Analysis, and the Financial tab to see the Financial Analysis.

Who will see my Script, Screening, and/or Financial Analysis reports?

Your analysis reports are 100% confidential unless you choose to make them visible on your project profile page. Visibility settings for your project’s analysis are separate from your page’s overall settings, so you can choose to share with specific people, all Slated investors, or the entire Slated community.
