“It’s a pleasure to be involved with your story. The acting was so good it was unnoticeable which is exactly what is required in short story telling. The mark of a great film, for me, is when I am drawn into the story and don’t notice the camera work, the lighting, sound or acting. Well done to everyone involved. This is a gem.”—Gareth James, RATMA Film Festival, Keighley, UK (“Scrappy” won their People’s Choice Award, 11/19/2017)

“Such a sweet story and short film. Congratulations! Looks beautiful, too. I loved hearing your dad’s story from his own voice at the end.”— Jim O’Heir, actor (Garry / "Jerry"/ "Larry" / "Lenny" / "Terry" / "Barry" / "Gerry" Gergich on NBC’s “Parks & Rec”, and star of multiple award-winning feature film “The Middleman”), Los Angeles, CA USA

“My favorite thing you've done! Starts with excellent illustrations...characters are outstanding, and story riveting. But, what really stood out to me technically was the quality of the digital video. It was so pristine. Congrats. You should be very, very proud.”—Don Moseley, multiple-Emmy and Peabody winner, NBC5 News & DePaul Center for Journalism Integrity and Excellence, Chicago, IL, USA

“Congratulations. I saw ‘Scrappy’ the other day and I really enjoyed it. You told a good story, and you got the best out of your actors. You should be very proud.”—Dale McRaven, writer/creator “Mork & Mindy”, “Perfect Strangers”, WGA TV Award winner for “The Dick Van Dyke Show”, Los Angeles, CA USA

“I watched ‘Scrappy’ last night and really enjoyed it. Very powerful message, and I’m glad the poem translated to film so well. I also like the addition of your dad talking about the story at the end of the film to help bring a personal touch to the film. Plus the girl actor you found is adorable! Hope it does big things on the festival circuit.”—Jeff Chiba Stearns, Emmy® nominated and Webby award winning animation and documentary filmmaker, Meditating Bunny Studios, Vancouver, BC, Canada

“Touching. Another job well done.”—Ron Magers, anchorman ABC7 (retired), Chicago, IL, USA

“Excellent work as always! A nice story well-told. Nice little vignette of your father telling the story behind the credits, as well. A triumph all-round.”—Phil Lepherd, award-winning filmmaker, & editor at British Sky Broadcasting, London, UK
