Transcription from the interview:
Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?
A: A friend on LinkedIn told me about the contest, and when I researched it the prizes sounded so much fun that I wanted to enter. You can’t pass up a chance to get professional feedback on anything you do, and getting a script read by actors is a phenomenal prize.
I haven’t entered any other contests with Undercover. I’ve thought about it, but not gotten around to it.
Q: Were you satisfied with the administration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?
A: Oh yes, they are fantastic. Above and beyond what I expected. There are so many contests where you submit something, pay the fee, and never hear from them again. Wildsound aren’t like that. I’ve submitted a screenplay before that didn’t quite make it, and I got feedback with ideas for improvement much sooner than I expected. When it comes to Undercover they’re still keeping in touch.
