Although I am serious about writing screenplays, I lack experience. I found the Feedback Animation Film & Screenplay Festival so much fun,and yet I learned so much by participating in this. Thanks for the support and all of it. I would encourage writers and of course those interested in animation to check this one out — definitely. Thanks!
