John Wildman was the epitome of a professional, a joy to work with, steadfast, and a team player through the stormy times. He clearly recognized our need, and provided a calming influence as well. We felt like we were his only client but we all know that was far from the case.

Those of us who worked with John Wildman this year found him to be a rare combination of determined enthusiasm and practicality; he knows film festivals and film promotion much better than any us.
