Scriptango is a unique tool for screenwriters that auto-analyzes screenplays and generates a detailed visual report. Observe the charts, spot flaws in your story and rewrite efficiently.
"What a clever tool you've come up with. Certainly very useful in identifying potential problems. I'll likely be trying this again with other screenplays. Thank you." -- Andy Davie
We are a group of screenwriters and programmers who offer a new experience to screenwriting. We believe a visual representation of a screenplay can help screenwriters understand their story and its flaws better, and improve it easily and efficiently.
We help screenwriters do a better job, by showing them instead of telling. Our smart software analyzes their screenplay and generates a visual report, which contains charts that display, page by page, the levels of the action, conflict, transitions, appearance and pace. It's the perfect reflection & validation tool!
Submit your screenplay in PDF format using the form below, and you'll receive your visual report within hours!

** we will not keep your screenplay once it's processed.
The purpose of the report is to help screenwriters understand their screenplay better, and make their next rewrite sessions as effective as possible. "One picture is worth a thousand words" fits perfectly here. Visual translates better, so it's easier to get a comprehensive overview and spot flaws purely by observation. We don't offer "right" vs. "wrong" evaluation, since this is subjective, but rather an opportunity to reflect on the work through a different lenses.What does the visual report contain?
The report contains five charts that visualizes, page-by-page, the following key elements of the screenplay:
Action - The level of any kind of physical activities performed by the characters.
Conflict - The level of negative interaction between characters (non-internal).
Transitions - The level of changes in set, time and space, which occur between scenes.
Appearance - The level of participation of important characters (speaking or not).
Pace - The level of Rhythm and Tempo, which set the overall flow of the story.
The numbers at the bottom of each chart represent the pages/minutes of the screenplay. Each bar in the chart represents the level of that element for a specific page (e.g. Conflict level on page 7). The higher the level, the higher the bar and darker its color.How to rewrite effectively based on the visual report?
High levels do not necessarily mean the result is "good" or "right". Some screenwriters, for example, would prefer a low action or pace sequence. The screenwriter must validate the results with his/her expectations, and if they don't meet, he/she needs to rewrite accordingly. By looking at the charts, the screenwriter can easily spot "flat areas", lack of diversity, or parts with different results than expected. Those are the sections that should be rewritten.How can the visual report be generated by a computer?
Our engineers are experts in the Computer Science field called NLP (Natural Language Processing), which studies the ability of a program to analyze and understand human language. And what is a screenplay? It’s text with a certain structure, rules and purpose. For example, to measure conflict our software analyzes the characters' sentiments, mood and emotions. A computer can often extract more valuable information than the human brain.What are the requirements for submission?
Your screenplay must meet industry formatting standards, be in English and in PDF format.What about privacy and security?
We will not send your screenplay to anyone else, nor use it for purposes other than processing it with our software. Our website is extremely secure for submissions, and guarded by McAfee and Comodo SSL.Why is the price of the visual report so low?
We charge a low price for the report because it's an automated process. No humans are reading the screenplays. True, we've spent a lot of time and money developing this software, and we still do, but we'd like it to be affordable for everyone. In any case, first 35 pages report is available for free!Is there a money-back/refund policy?
Yes! Our policy is money-back-guarantee-no-questions-asked. For whatever reason you can ask for your money back within 7 days, and you will get it.
