What coverage company do you use?

I just wanted to know what screenplay coverage companies everyone on here uses (if you even use any).  Which ones would you recommend?

I use mostly, but I also like, too.

I use Talentville coverage. It's a bit tricky though. First you have to review like crazy to buy a ton of reviews. Then you have to hope like hell that people are still giddy from the holidays and are throwing around high scores. With any luck you land top three and get the coverage. I was very satisfied with the evaluation.

I use no coverage whatsoever, which is why I don't get invited to children's parties and have to see a counselor twice a week.

So far I use Talentville for coverage. Free is good. If I ever do a rewrite on my scripts I'll probably use one of the services Dawn mentioned. Problem is I'm a MAJOR procrastinator and rarely finish anyt--

Barb Doyon of gives very solid notes for $75.  All her notes are geared towards the marketability of the script and it is not your standard "coverage".  She has helped me tremendously.

Scott Parisien of is excellent as well.

And Terri Zinner of is rock solid.

They all have different strengths, but with their reasonable prices, I generally send them each my script when it's ready to be looked at.  The cost of all 3 is what a lot of readers charge for 1 read with coverage that offers less to help with script development.  I'd confidently recommend any of them if you're looking to develop your script more.

I have used and found them to be excellent.  Their charges range from relatively cheap to 'Oh My God.' depending on what you want.  But they are highly spoken of in the industry.  One company I sent my script to was very impressed I'd got an Honourable Mention from Industrial Scripts and said they were recognised and respected throughout the industry.
