I had my table read party for Crime Extraordinaire with a group of friends and writers and everyone was truly amazed at the energy and authenticity that your cast brought to the characters. Thank you for choosing the right cast — they all did an impeccable job!
– Howard Fridkin (Crime Extraordinaire)
It was an amazing experience. I’m really grateful for this opportunity and I loved the way the actors brought the characters to life. I was so surprised at how they got it! They interpreted it exactly the way I was thinking it when I was writing.
– Lauren Hoekstra (Yellow Touch Red, You’re Dead)
I was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to see real people react to the film. All the feedback I have had so far has often been either critical or negative (in the case of many professors at my school) or effusive (because I have been present in person at many of the projections). The WILDsound audience could speak freely and honestly and so their impressions were a joy to see. I was also over the moon to see that many in the audience seemed to have grasped and engaged with the main story arc but also with some of the sub-themes of the film. I took a risk by making a film that is somewhat open-ended and one which depends more on visual and musical communication rather than verbal communication. I am delighted to see that, for some in the audience, this paid off.
– Director Don Duncan (A SIGN)
I thought that the feedback video was one of the best gifts this short film could bring me. Everything the audience said was so precise, every emotion… They captured the essence of the film! I never thought it could go so far. It really inspired me to keep on working.
– Director Laura Garcia (ALEX)
It made me so happy to watch the feedback of my film. I wish I could have been there. I love people who are open minded and ready to see with their heart. And I love cinema. As most of the people there love movies too.
– Director Laura Lehmus (Alienation)
I loved hearing all the different interpretations from the different audience members. Everyone comes to a screening with different backgrounds and history, and that all informs the way in which they receive and perceive a film; it was fascinating to me, and I thought everyone had very valuable things to say.
– Filmmaker Sarah Deakins (Greece)
I entered the FEEDBACK Festival because it was recommended on moviebytes.com. It was highly rated, and I liked that I would receive feedback regardless of the outcome of my script. Good feedback is hard to find, and so I decided to do it. The feedback received was very valid and constructive.
– Screenwriter Niel Thompson (FAUST)
I have to admit, when “Flat Pennies” performs well in some of the huge competitions this year, I will have to give WILDsound much credit for making my script stronger and far better. – Writer Robert Ward (Flat Pennies)
