Some of our judges comments…

It was a pleasure to read such great new voices and stories with real heart.’ – CHRIS PROVENZANO – writer & producer on Silicon Valley, Justified, Mad Men

These scripts were wonderful. It was great fun to read such a diverse group of stories, all of which were so well written.’ – PATRICK LUSSIER – writer of Terminator Genisys

‘I would like to applaud each of the writers and thank them for allowing me to read their wonderful work. Each writer is clearly at a level that assures me that if they are not already working (paid to write), that time is nigh’ – FRANK RENZULLI – writer of The Sopranos, The Walking Dead

I’ve really enjoyed reading these scripts. They are such a great, varied and eclectic mix.’ – NEIL MASKELL – actor in Peaky Blinders, The Mummy, Kill List
