Testimonials

"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."

("Dan and Nuria are a fantastic team of screenwriters; they perfectly master the craft of audiovisual storytelling, but they don't limit themselves to following dogmas or cliches. They know how to interpret the ideas of the directors and adapt the stories to the tone and language the project needs. They always do what’s best for the show and are very thorough. And the most important thing: they are veeeerrrryyyy funny folk.")

Paulo Alfaya, Director (Pocoyo, season 5)

"Dan and Nuria are an extremely talented writing team. They brought so much warmth, humor, and excitement to our series...We have nothing but great things to say about them!"

Joshua Staman, SVP of Development at Meticulous Media LLC

"I had the best experience working with Dan and Nuria who poured their signature quirkiness, humor, and heart into many episodes...They're fast and fun, too! I would jump at the chance to work with Dan and Nuria again."

Noelle Wright, Screenwriter / Story Editor / Producer (Doc McStuffins, Rainbow Ruby, StarBeam)

"Both Dan and Nuria are great screenwriters. They are familiar with children's animation and are very good at working with our team in the Kim and Jim's Wormhole. It was great to work with them."

Lei Wang 王雷, Founder / CCO at Escape Velocity Animation Studio

"Talent, professionalism, and speed. Dan [with Nuria] has written several live action and puppet scripts for our children's English Language Learning series. He has the ideal combination of being easy to work with, turning work around fast, and generating plenty of creative ideas."
