TV Festival Testimonial – June 17 2020

Screenwriter Paul R. Price (PAX GRAVITATE)

I believed in myself, even though I didn’t have any way to promote my material with an agent so that it could’ve been seen by an agent. This was an opportunity of a lifetime. I’m thankful for some feedback. This helped me tweak the script making it better over all. I”d like to thank WILDsound for their input!
