Comedy Festival Testimonial – June 17 2020

Screenwriter Joel Stern (THE WAITING ROOM)

“Word Games” was my first entry and I not only received valuable feedback, but it won “Best Screenplay” for September 2017. The entire script was table read by actors and placed on YouTube. It provided me with a valuable tool to see it performed as well as to promote it.

In this suspense/comedy, Bill Egan, a crusty Alcatraz corrections officer, suddenly finds himself in a waiting room along with a one-armed Medal of Honor award winner-turned hitman, a ditzy bank teller and a Bronx street hoodlum. From different time periods, they try to piece together the events that brought them there.
Little do they know they are about to face the ultimate judgement.

Comedy Festival Testimonial – June 8 2020

 Screenwriter Andrew Fisk (GEEKS: A LOVE STORY)

The festival did a reading of another feature length screenplay of mine, as well as some other creative works. So this was certainly an incentive. The feedback I received for “Geeks” was incredibly helpful. It let me see the screenplay in a way I had not seen before and got my brain moving in a new direction. I got rid of all the scenes that were slowing the story down and streamlined it. This screenplay is so much better now than it was a few months ago.

Screenwriter Scott Sawitz (FOR LOVE OR MUSIC)

I’m always looking for the right place to submit, not just anyone that’ll take me … and a festival for comedy sounded amazing. I got great feedback and used it to better develop myself as a writer.

This is a very special Festival. I am so sick of festivals that take your money and do little else to ensure that your screening gets a large audience. This Festival produced an audience of over 200 for our short film LIFT and the others shared on our program. After considerable time in the editing room you don’t really see your movie until you witness it in the midst of a full house. Thanks providing that.

What a great festival. Really enjoyed the aspect of getting videofeedback of our film. In a time of international crisis, the fetival turned around and made the festival happen anyway with private screenings and streaming. That must have been a lot of extra work, and as a filmmaker i highly appreciate that. Five stars all over the place, because this has been such a great treat to be part of, and it would be foolish of me to put one star on Networking, since the the situation in the world does not give us the chance. And I am not going to let covid-19 win over this festival! Also wo now know, that this festival will get the films screened no matter how the world turns!

These are difficult times for us all to gather and talk about our work. However, it is very encouraging to receive such valuable and insightful comments on my comedy, UNCLE FRANCO’S BIRTHDAY SUIT. Thank you and stay healthy everyone.

  Jason Harris (RICK THUNDER IN…LOOK BACK TOMORROW)

I loved watching the audience reactions. Rick Thunder has played probably over 20 fests now but unfortunately I have not been able to travel with the film often so seeing and hearing what people thought of it is fantastic. Thank you to everyone who watched and offered their opinions.

Screenwriter Darren Coyle (LATE FEES)

Since the script is a comedy, i have been eager to get it in front of comedy people, so I specifically focused on submitting to comedy festivals. The feedback has been very informative and welcome. As a writer, you cannot put a price on good, constructive feedback. So, thank you guys!
