– Elan Carlton, Cahoots, Feature Script

I have taken the time to review your feedback and have found your comments and suggested invaluable. As an amateur writer, with this being my first attempt at a screenplay, it’s feedback like this that will help mold me into a stronger writer. I am taking your suggestions and comments into consideration and heading back to the drawing board. My time is limited and I do not want to rush myself.
– Sarah Kochan, Feature Screenplay “Infected Romance”

Thank you for your incisive feedback on my submission. I especially appreciate the specificity with which you address areas that need improvement, and I can see how revising them will make my resubmission better.
– Edythe Wise, Feature Screenplay “Orpheus Takes a Detour”

Thank you for your excellent feedback! This is my first ever script / writing attempt, so I really did need the valued advice you so clearly pointed out.
– Ben Browne, Feature Screenplay “Sinjar”

Thank you very much for your email and taking the time to write such a good feedback. I really appreciate all your comments and I will definitely take them on board. No worries about being harsh – the harder the better as it helps me to improve my writing.
– Andrew Chaos, Feature Screenplay “Release the Chaos”

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

I’ve had a great experience with the WILDsound screenplay contest. The feedback for my screenplay arrived right on time.
