2009 SHORT SCREENPLAY COMPETITION WINNERS
Thanks to everyone who entered our 2009 Short Screenplay Competition. The level of competition this year exceeded our expectations. Over the past three weeks, our featured judge and evaluation panel have been engaged in a series of lively discussions and debate to select the screenplay finalists.
AND THE WINNER IS...
First Place goes to Nick Shupper for his short screenplay, Broken Records. Nick is currently a graduate student at American University completing a Masters in Fine Arts in Film and Electronic Media. His screenplay, Broken Records, is a touching story of a man recently released from a mental institution and his struggle to adjust to "normal" life in a modern and seemingly complex world.
Evaluator's Report: "Broken Records is a masterfully done work of psychological realism that can be described as Forest Gump meets Sling Blade. The plot is excellent and the central character is interesting and intriguing from beginning to end!"
