  • Finally a competition that understood the nuance of my script. I’ve paid tons of money to competitions that seemed to have totally missed the point. Thank you!!!!!

  • Thank you so much for the analysis of my screenplay. The comments were extremely useful and constructive–particularly the comments regarding the addition of “action description,” “environmental details,” and the “writer’s voice” throughout the dialogue. Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated and will only help me to improve the existing draft.
