Seeing the people’s reactions and comments on the film from the audience was a great experience for me and the rest of the crew and cast. I wish more festivals had an event like this as it is the very core of filmmaking. It made the screening of my film at your festival (and the awards) really special and real.
– Director John Hellberg “Mousse” short film

The feedback notes taught me, analysis after analysis, how to trim the fat and think organically, and helped me understand that in a good script “less means more”.
– Alexandre Kounde, TV Pilot “No Love Doves”

This is a very good idea ! I really like the initial reactions to the audience because I saw different kind of reactions. That’s why I made this film to provide various emotions and feelings to the audience.
– Director Karim Quaret, “Lapsus” short film

The FEEDBACK Festival has a reputation for providing on-the-money professional feedback for each submission. I like to enter every project I do in WILDsound because it is a great barometer for comparing your work to what is hot in the industry.
– Michael Miceli, Feature Screenplay “BESA”

Today’s Festival Testimonials (via MovieBytes)

We’re extremely satisfied with the administration of the WILDsound competition. We were offered the opportunity for a table read of our script. Okay, I admit it. We were skeptical. We weren’t convinced they could do an effective reading of such a large-cast script. But they completely blew us away. They came up with an amazingly effective presentation using two talented actors as the main characters and three playing revolving roles. In addition, WILDsound has provided post-win guidance. They’re cordial, helpful and quick to respond to questions. On one occasion, I emailed them at about two a.m. and was astonished when I received an immediate response. This is the first contest experience in which we really feel our screenplay is being actively promoted.

– VerLynn Kneifl, Feature Script

The feedback WILDsound has given to my script has been vital. It has put me into the right direction to improve my script in the best possible way. I scheduled to enter other contests because I believe in this project and I want to spread it in any way, until an agent/producer will be found.

– Roberto Lezzi, Short Script

Wildsound ran the contest smoothly. They met their deadlines, delivered what they promised, and kept in contact with me throughout the process.

– Michael Kellner, TV Pilot

WILDsound is wonderful. I have to say I was particularly pleased with their feedback. It was timely and the person actually read and understood the story. I thank them for that and would recommend their site to all writers. When my work was chosen as a winner it really boosted my resolve to keep writing. I plan to submit this work to more contests.

– Carkic Angelina, 1st Scene Script

The administration of this contest is a treasure! They take great time to provide the most expert, detailed feedback, even allowing my choice to incorporate the committee’s ideas or stay with my draft. With caring support, they honored each deadline and every award they promised, and I’m forever grateful for their insightful niggles to enhance my story.

– Elan Carlson, Feature Script

Without a doubt, I think the administration of the Wildsound contest is one of the best I’ve seen so far in many years of entering contests. Not because I won their contest, which is way too easy and cheesy of an accolade to heave upon them, but because of Wildsound’s conscientious and dutiful actions after I entered.

As any contest participant knows, if you do contests long enough you’ll need to contact a contest with a question concerning your entry, payment, whatever. A lot of contests that I’ve been involved with actually forget this aspect of their contest… timely responses to a participant’s questions. Screenwriters are innately stressful people. Most creative types are. And we want to hear back from a contest ASAP if we have a question. A couple contests I never heard back from if you can believe it. Matthew at Wildsound replied to most of my emails within hours if not a few minutes. He’s right up there with the best of them, such as the hardworking Greg Beal at Nicholl.

– Robert Ward, Short Script

Wildsound was more than I expected. After my initial entry, they made some great suggestions on improving the script. I took their advice, made the adjustments and resubmitted the pilot. They sent back more notes, I made some minor final touches, sent it back and found that I won. Since they announced my win, they have kept me posted regarding views of the video and what I can do to help promote my script.

– John Fuhrman, TV PIlot

Matthew Toffolo and WILDsound provide everything a screenwriter needs to find the way to a story’s successful completion. I’m forever grateful!

– Elan Carlson, November 10, 2014

I’ve had a great experience with the WILDsound screenplay contest. The feedback for my screenplay arrived right on time. It was thorough, insightful and very helpful in guiding me during the revision process. The table read of my screenplay was recently posted to YouTube and to the WILDsound website and, by all accounts, it was a wonderful experience!

– Kyle Jenkins, October 14, 2014

Wildsound is a new screenplay writers best friend – they are always upbest and positive, but also constructive. I won a 1st scene reading by real actors and not only enjoyed it but found it useful for seeing tone and pace issues. The monthly schedule and fast feedback turn around is a huge help when one is continually editing and coming up with new (and better?) drafts. Thanks you Matthew!

– David Kurtz, August 8, 2014

This is an excellent contest that gives useful feedback. It can be difficult to get honest, unbiased critique that can help make your material better, but Wildsound points out what you’re doing well and what can be improved. They are fast, friendly, and professional. I will definitely enter again in the future.

– Maria Hammarland, August 8, 2014

More than once my screenwriting has been the beneficiary of the feedback I’ve received from WILDsound readers, regardless if I reached the finals or won one of their contests. In fact, their feedback improved some of my scripts to the point that it probably helped them place in other contests! Matthew Toffolo, the founder of WILDsound, is getting the word out online about my June 2014 win (for CAGEY in the short category) and has posted video of an actors’ read-through of the script and my answers to interview questions. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the results of this contest.

– JJ Hillard, July 7, 2014

I’m so happy I entered my TV spec script into the Wildsound contest. The feedback they gave me was really helpful, and it was clear that the person critiquing my script was familiar with the show I was writing for. Seeing my script performed by actors was very rewarding. I highly recommend this contest to any aspiring screenwriters.
