Interview with Sean Elwood, Winner Best Scene Screenplay January 2015

WILDsound Festival

When I read that each script would get feedback on how to make it better, as well as the winning script getting a full reading at their event using actors really piqued my interest. It’s always great to get constructive criticism on something you’re very serious about, no matter what it is, and WILDsound definitely delivered on their critique toward my script.
