Here are a handful of testimonials about ScriptAWish.com, the company putting on this event:
When Michael gives me a script, I know it's something I have to read. I trust his taste because I know he has a great eye for talent. The fastest way for an unknown to get their work read by someone like me is through him.
Bard Dorros, Manager at Anonymous Content.
Getting notes, for a writer, can be a swift punch to the nuts. Luckily, Michael's got the golden fist. Dead on accurate, his notes might sting a little, but the reward of following them is better than you can even imagine.
Christopher Waild, TV Writer for CBS show NCIS .
This guy is invaluable! My writing has been elevated at an incredibly rapid pace, and the guidance I received led to meetings with a manager and an executive at Sony. The best decision you'll ever make is to work with Script A Wish!
Eric Patter, Screenwriter.
No one I have ever met has such a wealth of great taste, incredible contacts, and development talent as Michael. Thanks to him, a mere two days after I graduated from film school I had a meeting with executives in Los Angeles, after which they optioned my script. The next day, also thanks to Michael, I was "hip-pocketed" by a very in-demand manager. Put simply, Michael changed my life.
Michael Martin, Screenwriter and Now HarperCollins Author .
The most unrecognized side of Hollywood is that of the development world, where creative minds serve to discover, support, and nurture screenwriters to make a good script great. To do this well it takes an understanding of not only the writer's process, but structure, character, tone, commerciality, and above all the gut instinct to realize what is a movie and what is not. From the moment I started working with Michael I knew he had exactly what it takes to turn 120 pages of paper into gold.
Ryan Engle, Former President of Production for Kopelson Entertainment and 2012 Black List Writer.
I heartily recommend the services of Michael Ferris and Script A Wish. I met Michael a few years ago when I was working for Academy Award winning Producer Arnold Kopelson. Michael found us a writer and brought in a project that sold to New Line Cinema. Michael is good with story, has taste, and I trust his opinion. The best thing about working with Michael is that I know if he wants me to read a script, it will be something of quality. He's a no BS guy, and he doesn't waste people's time.
Michael Palmer, Screenwriter.
