Advisory Team
-ibIn scripted filmmaking there comes the moment when art meets audience, usually at a test screening. Until that moment, everything is opinion. Those audience responses reveal whether all the money and effort have been worthwhile.

Zoodiker offers the chance to check in with your future audience before careers and capital are at risk: at the screenplay stage. We apply data science to the responses and demographics of hundreds of readers, so you know whether your story connects. The large number of readers overcomes biases and offers revolutionary insights into your specific story.

We offer these insights before you commit to production. This means rewrites rather than reshoots; more hits, fewer flops. Crafted by filmmakers who deeply value the art of writing, Zoodiker is a game-changer for writers, producers, investors, and executives alike.
