ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – January 20 2019

It was nice to hear that the audio design was appreciated, particularly that knee stomp (Hi Stewart!). We spent a lot of time making it ‘wetter’, so it’s nice to hear it specifically mentioned. It was also nice to hear the production design was appreciated. The mention of that shot where everything is swept off the table got me particularly, as watching playback for that on set was the first moment I felt we really had something cool in the making.

ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – January 14 2019

Screenwriter Alan Rosenfeld (Jonny Quest: The Terror of Dr. Zin)

I needed a starting point to kick off this adaptation. A gauge on not only my ability to write a complete script but also on how other fans would take to seeing one of their childhood icons come to life again. There are many voices when it comes to writing a story such as Jonny Quest. The invaluable feedback from the festival helps me understand what other see in the story and help guide me as a young writing artist and bring the story to life.

Logline: “When a madman attempts to destroy Apollo 11, a courageous clever young man and his family must outwit their old nemesis to save the rocket and heal family wounds”.

ACTION/ADVENTURE Festival Testimonial – November 29 2018

I was very happy that people really seemed to get my film. Action short films are sometimes a hard sell. There’s nothing so visceral, powerful and ugly as two people punching the s%&t out of each other with their fists. But weirdly enough, I think words have as much– maybe even more, destructive power! I wanted to make a film about human beings and the complexity of relationships. And how we can get so turned around because of our relationships. The audience GOT and LOVED the film and that made me so happy.

Thank you very much for your well-considered feedback. I’ve read through your feedback a couple of times and thought I’d let you know it’s very actionable feedback and something I feel I can use to make me a better writer altogether.

This is the most intensive and helpful script notes I have received from any contest or paid reader. I would have paid for these notes without having entered the contest. If I had this reader years before, I wouldn’t be so disheartened and soured as I am now on screenwriting. If I ever regain my enthusiasm for screenwriting and film, I will surely follow the constructive notes on a rewrite.

Thank you to all of the actors, well done! That was good to see and it has both given me encouragement and some pointers to improvement for my final draft. I’m really looking forward to submitting that to you shortly! Thanks again
