1st Scene Festival Testimonial – September 19 2018

Emanuel Ruggeri

It really helps to have a performance of your screenplay. The actors were patient and made the dialogue come to life. It also made me realises that the action scenes were convoluted, so it forced me to create another draft. Since the rewrite, my screenplay has won several minor awards. Thanks for your efforts FIRST SCENE. Cheers 🙂
