ROMANCE Festival Testimonial – July 6 2018

From RED RIBBONS, by Zach Closs

I think the promise of feedback was a big reason for my submission, as constructive criticism can be hard to come by. The feedback I received was incredibly helpful; I could tell the script reader fully engaged with that I was trying to do, and suggested very clear, straightforward fixes.

Genre: Romance, Drama, Crime

Two years, a month, three weeks and six days after a controversial exposé forced him to flee, a young journalist returns to his hometown, hunting the pardoned rapist that was the article’s subject, and rekindling a tormented relationship with one of the victims.

Narrator: Sean Ballantyne
Kim: Lauren Toffan
Dancer 2: Clare Blackwood
Dance Leader: Val Cole

ROMANCE Festival Testimonial – June 11, 2018

From Screenwriters Screenwriters Kristy Leigh Lussier & Lee Vander Boegh (THE WRECKERS)

I kept hearing about this festival and about Wild Sound. Many friends and contacts have participated and loved the experience. Honestly, this was our first submission ever of the script to any contest/festival.

We didn’t expect to get the amazing feedback that we did (only because we are hyper critical of ourselves).  The feedback was SO helpful and gave us a great insight into some things we had not really brushed on. With the feedback we got, we were able to make another good edit on the script and re-submit to a few other contests, which we ended up placing as Finalists in both.

WATCH the Winning Screenplay Reading:

Genre: Comedy, Romance

They’re paid to turn weddings into disasters, and now are hired to plan a fake one. But when thrown into a job out of their element, this unbreakable duo quickly discover the only disaster they’ve created is the one between themselves.

CAST LIST: 
Narrator: Carina Cojeen
Ellen: Carly Tisdall
Trevor: Christopher Huron
Groom: Peter Nelson
Pastor: David Occhipinti
Bride: Kiran Friesen
