Why SCRIPTick?

Content is King is the most quoted line in the film business. Great scripts are the backbone of great films for decades and good scripts never fail to achieve success with the audience. However, the challenge is finding such great scripts for producers and filmmakers and hence compromises are often made to proceed with whatever is found to be good from the available scripts.

Recently, Mr.S.R. Prabhu, Producer of Dream Warrior Pictures has shared the analysis of number of synopsis they receive each month from Script Writers and how many out of them were shortlisted for next level. The analysis is shared here:


Out of 814 synopsis received, only 43 were shortlisted (just 5% out of the story pitches). Balance 95% of the synopsis were not considered. Look at the kind of time, resources and manpower being spent to short list good scripts.

Our team at SCRIPTick has read over 100 Full Bound Scripts in the year 2022 and out of them only 4 were shortlisted for taking up to the next level (just 4% of the scripts received).

This means only 4 or 5 out of 100 scripts/synopsis received could go to the next level at professional production houses and can be considered as scripts worth pursuing.

Every Producer who is planning to start a film need not go through so many scripts/synopsis to finalize the one they wish to produce and instead can take the help of SCRIPTick.

SCRIPTick team will do the job of going through hundreds of synopsis/full scripts, shortlist, curate and offer Best of Scripts to Producers so that they can chose the one that meets with their plans.

This way, Producers are able to save time, resources and manpower and review only the best of scripts offered by Team SCRIPTick.

Is it not a big opportunity for Producers?

As most Producers especially New Producers do not have an organized set up for script evaluation like Dream Warrior Pictures, currently, a large number of scripts are being taken up for production without adequate due diligence on their worthiness by experienced screenplay writers and hence we see a high percentage of failures of new films. Scripts offered by SCRIPTick would have gone through that rigor of evaluation on their worthiness by a team of experienced screenwriters and hence Producers and Filmmakers can be reasonably sure of the scripts offered will work well with the audience when they are made as feature films or web series.
