Recent Testimonials: 
 
I have to admit, when “Flat Pennies” performs well in some of the huge competitions this year, I will have to give WILDsound much credit for making my script stronger and far better.
– Robert Ward (Flat Pennies)

I had my table read party for Crime Extraordinaire with a group of friends and writers and everyone was truly amazed at the energy and authenticity that your cast brought to the characters.  Thank you for choosing the right cast -- they all did an impeccable job!
- Howard Fridkin (Crime Extraordinaire)

 Friendly, helpful, and with great feedback on my submitted material, both when successful, and when less so. Definitely a screenplay event worth entering! 
- Neil Doran (Everything's Fine)
