Comedy Festival Testimonial – March 5 2019

I was completely thrilled. The audience took so much from my story that I hadn’t considered, likening it to ‘David and Goliath’ and The Pink Panther. I was also so excited to see that they understood the message I wanted to communicate and the tone of the film, showing me that I had succeeded in the parts of the film I’d thought I hadn’t.

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO. Moderated by Matthew Toffolo:

 

Comedy Festival Testimonial – February 25 2019

Awesome, thank you so much! Very clear, artistic, raunchy, (and the most pleasant surprise), youthfully appealing. I didn’t see that coming. It’s a real eye-grabber and conversation starter. Well done. The progressive script is not for everyone. The film short is not for everyone. Good! Screw’em. I like it a lot. I hope you enjoyed the project and the process as well. Please thank all your staff.
