"Dan and Nuria Wicksman are two extremely talented live-action and animation writers. As a story-editor, I could always count on them to deliver a solid and entertaining first draft. Besides being great writers, they are enjoyable to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend them for scriptwriting on any show."
Denise Downer, Screenwriter & Story Editor (Avengers Assemble, Tom & Jerry in New York)
"Dan y Nuria son un equipo de guionistas fantástico; dominan perfectamente los mecanismos de la narración audiovisual pero no se limitan a seguir los dogmas o los protocolos formales; saben interpretar las ideas de los directores y adaptar las narraciones al tono y lenguaje que el proyecto pida en cada momento. Siempre trabajan a favor de obra y son muy rigurosos. Y lo más importante: son gente muuuuuuuuy divertida."
