Dave Di Pietro, Reel Cool Entertainment raves :
...The Ritz Group's Creative + Investor Summit was one of the best events of 2017. We were overwhelmed at the response we received from investors, producers and industry professionals. Our company was lucky enough to be chosen for the Shark Attack presentation, which was informative as it was entertaining. We cannot sing the praises of this event high enough. Anyone who is connected to filmmaking in the State of Georgia should mark this as a "must attend" event in the future! Thanks for an incredible time!'
Mark Holliway praises:
The ability to put creative work in front of investors was incredible. Writers often have no outlets that come even close to what Bernadette Boas has created. She has done so in a very unselfish and giving way. The best was the feeling of people in a position to help writers do so eagerly.without regard to any bias as to any of the genre. David Cox
