Allen did a great job, he was prepared, had perfect visual reference of script and screen. And is the only person I've ever seen correctly cover idiosyncrasies such as spacing and punctuation for cadence.
Loved the enthusiasm of the presenter, who painted a clear picture. I got a lot out of it, especially understanding the difference between managers and agents
Our hosts are outstanding! Couldn’t ask for better mentors! I felt it was an incredibly important experience and crucial to further my writing ability.
I'm grateful for all the sensible and well-grounded feedback that were given so benevolently. They will definitely put me on the right track. I realise how lucky I am. Again, a million thanks.
I had a pitch deck call with Julia Verdin; relaxed, insightful and thorough, and a really good conversation to boot. I left with the confidence that I’m on the right track, armed with many valuable insights and thoughts to further improve my deck, honestly couldn’t have asked for more. Highly recommended. Thanks also to Jason Mirch, and special thanks to Angela Cristantello who was incredibly helpful throughout the process.
Allen and Nick are great.A weekly creative meeting is so motivating as a writer.
I loved the 'table read' for so many reasons. It makes participation less awkward, along with all the typical benefits of hearing your work read aloud. I will definitely apply all the tips. I'm so excited for the next one!
While pitching last night, it felt like I had two people already in my corner (RB and Allen) which allowed me to go off book and relax. I felt I could open up with Brad more than I would have if it were just a one on one pitch session.
I appreciate the clarity, honesty and overall inspirational tone of the webcasts that you guys provide. I always leave feeling a little smarter, and slightly less terrified:)
Just keep it coming guys. I’m so happy to be invited to the Writer’s Room. I truly (finally) feel like I might have a shot in this industry. I’m writing every night after work until 11:00 (or later). Thanks x a billion.

This session was incredibly valuable, since I had the chance to see a variety of pitches in action, and the reactions in the room, to help me better understand what to tackle next in my revision process.
Stage 32 presentations are genius at covering what is important and doing so in a way that is inspiring. I couldn't ask for more.

“Since I joined Stage 32 in February my writing has really taken off in a really big way. A Horror feature screenplay was optioned by a studio. Stage 32 has just been fantastic. It’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever invested in emotionally since February - because the of help of Writers’ Room members who have had conversations with me, read my scripts, and had constructive criticisms. The support is just awesome. It opens up a lot of doors.” - John M., Optioned Screenwriter & Writers' Room Member
