Horror Festival Testimonial – March 22 2019

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!

Horror Festival Testimonial – March 5 2019

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.

Horror Festival Testimonial – February 26 2019

I was happy to see that the audience had remembered the character’s names and were able to distinguish plot elements only from the sound design. I also enjoyed listening how people would compare the story and its characters to real life issues.
