This is most excellent. I loved the thorough feedback, and some of the fixes or easy and some require a little more thinking but regardless, I’m glad to be getting your feedback.
– David Baugnon, (The Messiah Project)
Thank you for your encouraging words and for this great chance you are giving me. If I had to rate your feedback, I would give it 110 over 100 !! In fact, it is thanks to your previous feedback that I was able to improve this piece: even when they are harsh, your comments are always constructive, thorough and motivating.
– Maroun Rached, (Elan Vital)
I really appreciate the detailed feedback, it is very encouraging and gives me very specific things to improve upon.

That’s the most useful feedback I have received. Certainly understand the issues you brought forth.

These notes are very helpful in my advancing this piece and as a new writer I am extremely pleased with the generally positive reinforcement here.

Thank you for the extremely useful feedback on my script Digital Natives.

Thank you for the feedback to my script “Father Flanagan”. I was very excited to get this valuable tool and you did not disappoint!
– Chris Beatty (Father Flanagan)
I greatly appreciate the time and effort from you and all of the actors involved. It was really something seeing a reading of my work.
– Seregon O’Dassey (Absynthia)
Thank you for your feedback and notes. This is very constructive. I agree to reduce the number of characters. They can be brought out in specific episodes.
– Tomas Stanley (Pocono Heaven Lodge)
Wildsound was more than I expected. After my initial entry, they made some great suggestions on improving the script. I took their advice, made the adjustments and resubmitted the pilot. They sent back more notes, I made some minor final touches, sent it back and found that I won. Since they announced my win, they have kept me posted regarding views of the video and what I can do to help promote my script.
– John Fuhrman
Thanks so much for responding with such detailed, articulate, and useful feedback. It’s greatly appreciated! The commentary is both resonant and practical.
– Eli Edelson
TV Spec Screenplay (Hannibal)
I appreciate you taking the time to give me a good insight into the next steps and tweaking I need to work on.
– Lois Terrans
TV Spec Screenplay (Supernatural)
Thank you for the helpful feedback! I’m sure my script will be stronger after revising!
– Victor Obi
TV Pilot (The Guardian)
Thanks for the feedback! Very helpful advice for my next draft.
– Ryan Feldman
Girls, TV Spec Screenplay
Thanks to you and your team for such excellent and detailed feedback. It’s clear that those reviewing the script have put a great deal of time and effort into breaking it down and assessing it professionally – and we’re very grateful. We particularly appreciate the fact that both the strengths and the weaknesses have been highlighted, so we can see what we’re doing right, as well as which elements need work.
– Sara Myles
TV Pilot (May Contain Nuts)
I have found your feedback particularly helpful. You’ve picked up on some great logic points of the story I couldn’t see having been immersed in the story.
– Ed Vassi
TV Pilot Screenplay (Our Demons)
Thank you very much for your notes! They are spot-on. I agree that the story should probably focus more on Peter’s dilemma. If it ties in with Phuc’s heroin operation though, I’d need to walk that fine line of developing the subplots enough without overpowering the main story.
– David Chan
Family Guy TV Spec
Appreciate the feedback. Thank you for the fast response!
– Cole Folwer
Masters of Sex, TV Spec Screenplay
Thank you for the feedback. I will take the notes into consideration for future drafts.

Thank you SO, SO, SO much for your feedback. I am not a “writer” by trade, so this was absolutely fantastic to read.

Treasured Ones, TV PILOT
Wildsound ran the contest smoothly. They met their deadlines, delivered what they promised, and kept in contact with me throughout the process.
– Michael Kellner
I just wanted to say THANKS for the feedback. It was very specific, detailed and makes a lot of sense. It helped me to consider a lot of what I hadn’t considered before. I really do appreciate the time you took to prepare this and I feel this was money well-spent. I will continue to work on this and send to you again in the near future. Thanks again
– Robert People
First Lady, TV Pilot
For anyone starting out, I cannot recommend a better competition to enter. Since rewriting my script based on their constructive criticism I have placed in a handful of semifinals and finals that I don’t believe I would have reached without their feedback and continued support.
– Kim Godfrey-Hempsall
ERASER, TV Pilot
That you immensely for these invaluable notes, WILDsound. Looking forward to submitting “Perfect Match” again in the future.

Thank you for the feedback. Grammar is always something that I struggle with, and thank you for the pointers on focusing on the visual rather than the reader detail.

I Can’t Think Straight, TV PILOT
I am going to take your comments and make the character more likable in the pilot. My 2nd episode builds on this trait but I understand we have one shot. I will always appreciate your feedback. I know this can be a successful show.
– Jason Fuller,
Living Fuller, TV Pilot
Thank you. I enjoyed the comments immensely as it told me I had accomplished a lot of what I tried to do.
