    I paid for a half-page of script notes and got more than my money's worth. A lot of very useful feedback. I'm looking forward to submitting a new draft in 2017.

    Their sound feedback has helped me consistently improve my script. If I ever get accepted, I would consider spending the money to go to LA to attend the reading in person.

    I was selected as one of the scripts for the Dec/Nov. reading. It was a fantastic experience and a big help for me in polishing up/rewriting my script. Everyone from the event organizers to the actors to those in attendance were fully involved in the reading. The feedback was top notch and offered up in a truly respectful, kind way. Love them!
