June 26, 2018 – 1st Scene Screenplay Testimonial

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.

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.
