What I learn most from Gini is that some of the best students are the best teachers and Gini excels at being both. She wants to learn and is open to sharing her knowledge as well. She is an effective communicator and business builder and an individual we can learn a lot from.”  February 1, 2010

U.S. Government Agencies

"We were delighted at our success of using your service to set up meetings for a delegation of senior executives in the animation entertainment industry from Hong Kong seeking introductions to U.S. companies involved in films and toys and games, as well as financing.  The response exceeded our expectations.  We directed people to respond to our Website and had over 100 responses.  We set up over 200 one-on-one meetings, and even had a waiting list for our reception and breakfast.  Both the Hong Kong delegates and U.S. companies were very happy with the high quality of the participants on both sides.  I also appreciate your help in writing the letters for our mailing.  You were able to highlight
what was important to both sides, and it made it so much easier for me to have your knowledgeable, expert assistance.   Thank you again for all your help."

"This is definitely a GREAT SUCCESS story not only for me but also for the Victims...You have an amazing service and if you ever need a spokesperson then be sure to keep me in mind....I wanted to thank you for the services you provided in your submission service.  I was amazed at the responses that I received for my TV reality show and how quick they started after I received confirmation that the submissions had taken placed.  I have signed an agreement with a production company in Burbank, California and we are scheduled to start the production of a pilot show in February 2007.  It was obvious that you have a passion to help others and I say this with a lot of confidence and credit this from my personal experience with you and the time you took to personally respond to my questions.  I am excited about my show and it will certainly be one of the most positive shows on TV with a defined purpose.  I know that in the very near future this show will be the leading tool to bring changes by creating public awareness in our communities.  Thanks again."

"I have used your service a total of four times now, and each time have been stunned by the wonderful results.  I have referred this service to hundreds of friends and fellow professionals and all have rave reviews. Recently I used Gini's SCREENWRITERS SERVICE to announce the availability of film rights to my newest book FLYING BY THE SEAT OF MY PANTS: FLIGHT ATTENDANT ADVENTURES ON A WING AND A PRAYER. (WaterBrook Press, Random House - May 2005)  As usual, this service delivered more than it promised.  I was stunned by the number of producers and feature film companies asking for the treatment and showing interest in the acquisition of rights to the book.  Thank you Gini, for providing a much needed service that takes the sting out of rejection.  With your service, only those interested reply.  And there is no face to face "go take a hike" or "wasted time".  I love this!"

        Larry LaRochelle
        Dracut, Massachusetts

"I wanted to thank you for your easy to use and helpful query service.  I'm still talking to two production companies that wanted to see a rewrite, which I've now finished.  And I'm still awaiting responses on the first read from five more.  The best thing about your service was its ease of use and the ability to reach a lot of people at one time.  I received a total of about 25 responses from people wanting a copy of the script."
        Amir Epstein
        Oakland, California

"I received 6 or 7 positive reactions so far and a few that asked me to send other pitches.  So I feel this has definitely been worth while and would like to try another query for another script in the near future.  I appreciate your efforts and see that there are a lot of companies that are new to me."
        Gwendolyn Hulet
        Minneapolis, Minnesota

"Thanks so much and thanks for all your follow-ups for my horror/thriller  Alabaster,  which was sent to both producers and agents and to the e-mails only list.

       Derek Hill

"I am impressed by your service for my  Y-Chromosome  script.  I had expected that your organization merely would distribute all incoming ideas to potential buyers, but you genuinely do give advice, and I have taken your advice to heart...I received a lot of positive response, and about 9 persons want to receive the script."
       Jacob Heilijgers

"I got a great response for both my screenplay about a revenge-seeking cop  Road to Redemption  and my suspense novel  Perfect Partners.   I got dozens of responses from film industry pros, agents, and editors seeking to see my material, and my projects are now under consideration by about a dozen producers and production companies and a dozen book editors and agents  As a Canadian writer, these e-mail queries have really helped me connect with film professionals and major publishers and agents.  Thanks again."

"In just a few days, I got interest from a half-dozen producers and production companies in my first script,  3rd , a psychological drama about a young archaeologist. It's based on discovering that feelings of deja vu or a past life are actually passed on from one’s ancestors because of a “memory gene” that encodes past memories of an ancestor.  One L.A. producer was especially excited, since she had often thought about this kind of theory, especially since no film has yet come out on the topic."
