Moutaz Jad Los Angeles, California
Thank you for such wonderful, thorough and thoughtful feedback. I have never gotten this kind of feedback from a competition. Thank you!
Luke Yankee Long Beach, California
Superb feedback. Both insightful and useful. It's nice to get a reader who actually has ideas and suggestions about your work. The fact that I'm receiving this from a contest format is mind-blowing to me. You guys are onto something special. Keep it up!
Be Smissen Murrieta, California
I was pretty sure the feedback would be lame, short, and barely usable. Sort of like the book reports I wrote in the 6th grade. Happily, my cynicism was confounded again. The comments were insightful, honest, and constructive; even a little creative. Definitely worth the price of admission. Thank you for running a contest that doesn't seem like such a scam for a change.
Ron Maede Plainfield, Illinois
Wow! Great feedback!! I once paid $500 for an evaluation that wasn't one tenth as thoughtful or useful, not to mention detailed. I could tell your reader actually read every word and gave it some thought. Worth the price of admission alone!
John Aldriedge Arlington Virginia
I really appreciate the feedback in your contest. The notes were insightful, clear, concise and gave me a great sense of the level of importance and detail that went into the analysis. It's nice to know that someone worked as hard to critique it as I did to write it.
Leon Hendrix Rhinebeck, New York
We want to thank you for your evaluation of our script. It was articulate and well written, and showed you took the time to absorb it. Writing these short, comprehensive reviews is clearly an art form of its own. It was a pleasant surprise to get serious feedback from an experienced industry professional.
Mark Beech and Linda Gray Battle Creek, Nebraska
Many thanks for the excellent feedback. You were able to articulate and hammer home a couple of points that others had made but that had not made sense to me.
Paul Littell Rowayton, Connecticut
Thank you for, again, another great analysis. Your advice is so clear to me to be exactly on the mark that I can't believe I spent so many hundreds of hours on this project without any of it occurring to me! I think I'll go back to writing limericks, epigrams and shopping lists ;)
D. Jay Williams Spokane Valley, Washington
Please thank your reader for his or her very perceptive and helpful comments (and I speak as a fairly well-respected UK script editor myself).
Ellin Stein London, England
Thank you so much for the thoughtful and on-target evaluation and suggestions. You made me feel seen.
Mark Hammond Jersey City, New Jersey
This is the first screenplay contest that means something to me. I've won others with better pieces of writing that were less commercial and got me nowhere. Your helpful summary pushed me towards my second draft faster that any meaningless award could have. $60 bucks for an entry free: questionable. Honest notes on my screenplay: priceless.
Ellyn Shull Kirkland, Washington
Thanks so much for the thoughtful and very useful critique. It's great to know one's work is being read so thoroughly!
Matt Lambert Los Angeles, California
Just a quick note to say thanks again for such a powerful insight. I love the meatball and oatmeal analogy! I'll give this a great deal of thought on my next rewrite of the script.
Chuck Duffie Claremont, California
The feedback I received on my script was helpful. In fact, I have made revisions based upon those suggestions. As well, I must say I liked the tone of the way the feedback was written better than that of any festival... just so you know.
Philip Sedgwick Tucson, Arizona
Wow. I don't know if you'll get this e-mail but thank you! thank you! thank you! -Your useful feedback came at the perfect time. Hope is a precious commodity these days, and your critique gave me enough to keep going for a while.
Mark Charles San Diego, California
Thanks for the feedback! It was stated very clear and helpful. I’ll definitely make the recommended adjustments.
Dionne Ellison Clementon, New Jersey
Thank you for such a thoughtful and professional analysis of my two scripts. Wow! (And your reader's writing is far superior to mine--it was a real treat.)
DJW Spokane, Washington
Your feedback was outstanding. Thank you so much.
Kevin Jaxon Park Forrest, Illinois
Thank you for the excellent notes -- very helpful on the important issues -- I'm hard at work incorporating them.
Hamilton Mitchell Studio City, California
Just wanted to thank my reviewer for their notes. They're the most on-point and useful notes I've received in awhile!
Ricardo Acuna Los Angeles, California
Thank you for these great notes! I appreciate the concise and thoughtful review - very helpful
Christine Downs West Hollywood, California
Thank you very much for the feedback. The competition aside, this is very helpful indeed and will absolutely assist me in the redrafting of my script.
Ronnie Mackintosh West Lothian, Great Britain
Thank you very much for the oh so helpful evaluation of my screenplay. I am excited to have this information to guide me in my writing.
Theresa Danley Chinook, Montana
Many thanks for the feedback. That alone, was worth my submission fee.
Anne Iwobi Brighton, England
Thank you for the insightful and carefully considered feedback. The comments and suggestions were valuable, and I look forward to working with you in the future
Ken Lemm Atlanta, Georgia
So I just received my evaluation Seth. Let me tell you that your readers are too kind! Great suggestions and feedback. Plus someone actually REALLY read my script! Awesome.
Brian Downs Kentwood, Michigan
I have entered my script in other competitions over the past year and a half and received other critiques and coverage from various sources. I have to say that the recent evaluation that I received from your reader is by far the most thoughtful and valuable feedback I have ever received. Not only were the suggestions clear and helpful, but this is the first feedback from an objective source where the reader was obviously familiar with the novel from which my screenplay was based. My script took Second Place in another major competition this year and the feedback was not nearly as valuable as what I got from you. I often wonder about the credibility of some of these contests, but it appears that Fresh Voices is a true Class Act!
Jim Farina Palatine, Illinois
Thank you so much for writing me the feedback! I found it tremendously helpful and insightful. You are providing a fantastic service for writers and I feel so blessed to have found your contest
Laura C. Memphis, Tennessee
Thank you for the detailed feedback. It was quite obvious the reader had read the material cover to cover and their level of professionalism and understanding of story and structure was clearly evident and a breath of fresh air.
Rosanna Marquez, Los Angeles, Ca.
Thank you so much for your spot-on evaluation! Thank you, though, too, for your encouraging words.
Jane J. Reno, Nevada
If I only enter one competition next year, it will be Fresh Voices.
Alexi Solomon Albequerque, New Mexico
My script’s been optioned! Thank you Fresh Voices!!
Sarah Weiss-Long San Antonio, Texas
At first I didn't know what to make of your contest as there are SO many pretenders and scammers out there, but I feel you guys are really doing a great job encouraging, challenging, and respecting new and growing writers. Thanks for everything, and look out for my next draft!
Leon Hendrix Rhinebeck, New York
Thanks to you, I've had three requests to read my script. Hopefully I'll have some questions for you about option agreements soon!!
Bill Carter Denver, Co.
Fresh Voices is FIRST CLASS in every way -- professional, philanthropic and great with communication. The website is easy to navigate and everything about your organization seems a step above the rest. I wish you continued success with it.
Jan Stanton Los Angeles, California
Your packaging reports have proven so valuable to me. I have a letter of intent from an actor and he's helping me approach directors he knows before we take the package to producers. Amazing!
William S. Los Angeles, Ca.
I've tried several consultants over the years, but I must say I've never been given the level of attention you've offered me. It's been a great help to know I have someone to turn to for advice.
Lisa San Diego, Ca.
Wow, thank you! Please pass on my sincere thanks to your readers for their astute and invaluable comments, and I want to thank you for running such a great comp – where else can we get such professional and useful feedback for such minimal cost!
Margaret Riseley Sarina Beach, Australia
Thank you for your kind email and support. It's been a pleasure participating in this competition. Everyone I've been in contact with at Fresh Voices has been most considerate.
Emily Solomon Washington, DC
It's very nice to receive such a positive and encouraging message. I was also very happy to receive my feedback on the script. Congratulations to you and the peeps at Fresh Voices on running such a well organized competition.
Caroline Farrell County Dublin, Ireland
I'm greatly impressed by the level of communication and professionalism of the Fresh Voices competition, and the feedback from the first round was most inspiring.
John Radzniak Verona, New Jersey
I’m continuously impressed by the first class way that Fresh Voices does business. Your follow-up letter is yet another example of how you take the time to do things right and in today’s age you really stand out.
Jan Stanton Los Angeles, California
Thanks for the encouraging words. I appreciate the time and passion you put into the screenplay evaluations. It appears that Fresh Voices is a quality organization.
