Adam Levenberg is author of THE STARTER SCREENPLAY and one of Hollywood’s most in demand screenwriting consultants. As a reader for USA Films (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, TRAFFIC), Adam recommended scripts such as HOLLYWOODLAND and SYLVIA, which were both produced by the studio. After working as a Creative Executive for Intuition Productions (THE STEPFORD WIVES, PASSENGERS), Adam moved on to One Race Films (XXX, THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK, THE PACIFIER, FIND ME GUILTY, FAST & FURIOUS) where he became the company’s Development Executive.
At One Race, Adam’s responsibilities included interacting with every major literary agency in order to cover the spec market and meeting with the industry’s top screenwriters to hear pitches and help fill writing assignments for the many original and sequel projects on the company’s slate. After leaving One Race to become an independent consultant, Adam’s clients now include one of Hollywood’s biggest producers as well as a legendary two time Academy Award winning actor. Adam is a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts with a degree in Critical Studies.
The Pros Agree – Adam Moves You Forward!
Adam knows what he is talking about. He always gives an unbiased perspective that comes from an intense knowledge and love of cinema.

If I got an email from Adam with a script attached, I would assume it was great. If he suggested I read it immediately, I would.
Screenwriter (Nonstop – Currently in Production)
This site is amazing because writers receive great notes and get to discuss them at length with a professional. The best part: If a script deserves representation, Adam will get it to the right agents at a moments notice.

I highly recommend this service!

Having sold twelve projects to the major studios, let me offer the highest praise: “Adam Levenberg is on my speed dial.” Simply put, he is one of the best development executives and story analysts in the business. I speak to Adam on a regular basis to discuss my upcoming projects because he offers reasoned, intelligent, cogent advice and criticism, has a wicked sense of humor AND he has his finger on the zeitgeist. There are a great number of companies claiming they can help you with your screenplay. Finding a service where writers from outside Los Angeles can get amazing feedback and not get taken to the cleaners is rare indeed. You’ve just found one.

Clients Love Working with Adam!
I have optioned a script to a major studio based production company and sold another but my consultation with Adam Levenberg exceeded all expectations. I have had a number of analyses done on projects and Adam’s insight and expertise is second to none. His passion for film and screenwriting is contagious and his notes are worth their weight in gold. Couldn’t be happier…
Adam, did an amazing job of helping me point out the weak parts of my script, and delivered the honest straight forward professional opinion family and friends could not. His suggestions helped me build better, stronger characters and a solid structure. I think the biggest mistake screenwriters make is sending their material out to soon and Adam helped me avoid that. I paid one reader twice as much for a single page of coverage where as Adam spent two hours going over my script and gave me lots of exciting ideas which allowed me to go straight into a rewrite.
I’ve been writing for a few years now but I’ve never really known what my strengths and weaknesses are. In the time we spent together today I now not only understand what I need to work on, but also have much more confidence in my writing ability. I am confident that, very soon, I will be a respected and regularly working writer.

To anyone who is thinking of hiring someone to give them notes on a script, I would tell them to ignore all the other teachers and come-ons and rush right over to Adam’s site. His insights into my scripts’ problems were right on the money and I have never received such intelligent notes on my work from anyone. I loved the one-on-one face time we had and his patience and compassion with a writer’s tender feelings made me feel I had a chance to fix my work, present it to prodcuers with confidence and SELL IT!! And ain’t that what we’re all looking for?”

Adam Levenberg is a real Pro when it comes to evaluating scripts. He knows his business! He cut right through my script that I had labored over for years and other consultants just fawned over. Yet Adam was able to see the flaws instantly and make recommendations for elevating it to a professional level with only one consult.

Adam is not only a consummate professional, he is also bright, insightful and a virtual encyclopedia of information when it comes to film and screenwriting. His honest and enthusiastic approach to consulting is refreshing. I have worked with script consultants in the past, but no one was able to come close to offering the practical advice Adam gives. His advice makes it possible for a new writer to break into the industry and to sell a screenplay. This is an invaluable service.
Meeting with Adam was an extraordinary experience. As an NYU Film Alum with many years of writing under my belt, I thought I knew everything about screenwriting. But the insight I got from Adam regarding my script was about a hundred times more relevant and useful than a class at Tisch. Not only that, it cost about $3,000 less. I was expecting a short consult, but to my surprise Adam spoke with me for more than 3 hours about screenwriting, the business, and my script. He’s also been readily available to discuss new ideas and give insight. The guy truly loves making movies, and brings passion and enthusiasm to his work. I will definitely be working with him again.”
