Horror Festival Testimonial – March 29 2019

The audience seemed to really like the film and that validates all the effort and creativity and sacrifices you make to bring something like this into reality. You hope what you create will connect with people and it seemed like my film did that. I also appreciate how smart the comments were. Folks really got into the spirit of what “The Blood Of Love,” is about, which is: How far would you go to hold onto the person you love?

I just wanted to write to say how much I appreciated your notes on my script. These notes were clear, precise and objective. They will be of great help to me in improving the script. It is so rare that a competition sends something like this that I wanted to say thank you. A few times I have received notes from other competitions that so obviously didn’t even read the script that these were shocking at how amazing they were. Alright, I’m gushing at how great you guys are so I’ll stop. But seriously, very helpful and thank you.

Was influenced by a random tweet from the Horror Twitter account to join the contest. After putting off contests for years (I’m very self-critical) I decided to take a chance and enter the contest. I’m happy I did!

It was very exciting. This was the first feedback that we’ve gotten from complete strangers, so it was great to see that people really enjoyed the film, and that film successfully communicated a state of anxiety.
