Now offering Script Critiques on a Limited Basis.
Due to my teaching schedule, my critiquing time is mostly for students. However, I can take on additional scripts during select times during the year.
Full evaluation of film, television or play scripts. Includes notes on structure, character, dialogue, what’s working and what isn’t working, as well as suggestions for the next draft.
Features up to 130 pages (standard formatting): $250

Half hour television scripts: $100
NOTE: This is a critique service only; I will not be passing along any scripts to producers or studios.
“I learned more about the art of writing screenplays in one writing seminar from Sean Gaffney than in an entire year at the American Film Institute.” —Robert G. Lee, comic/writer for Veggie Tales
“Thank you so much for the critique. It is just what I need to take my writing to the next level. You not only told me what was specifically wrong, but also what I could specifically do to improve it and what was most important to do first. An action plan–I love it!” -Carol Hall, novelist, screenwriter
“Sean is a master at what he does, but what makes him such a great teacher is that he can communicate how to improve writing skills to people no matter what level of expertise they may be writing from.” —Kim Messer, Product Manager/Editor Lillenas Drama
“His insights into the writing process are as stimulating as they are useful. You’ll leave the classroom eager to fire up your computer and get to work.” —Paul Buchanan, Professor of English, Biola University
