Animation Festival Testimonial – October 13 2018

I loved it. It was a totally new experience for me. I’ve obviously shown the film to a lot of friends and people I meet, and it is great to see their reaction as they watch the film. But having people who know about film talk about and comment on your work is something very different. The fact that the audience picked up on some of the small details about the characters & story line gives me a renewed devotion to finish up the series.

Awesome! So happy to have been a part of this festival and to hear such thoughtful and encouraging feedback from the audience. Thank you! Shep is a lovely host and takes the time to do her own independent research and intently watch each film, which is really impressive.

Animation Festival Testimonial – September 24 2018

Thanks for the excellent and detailed feedback. Certainly a lot to think about and digest; probably over a few weeks, before I dive back in to re-writes.
You’ve certainly hit a few nails right on the head. Sometimes, if not most times, it does need another experienced eye to point out the flaws/defects/structural blips and other aspects that stop a screenplay from being the best that it can be, which this certainly isn’t…..yet.
