The Winners!

Congratulations to this year's winners of the Communication Arts Department Open Frame Film Festival Contest:

Scripts - The Cube by Rick Thomas & Definition by Alyssa Pearson

Directors - Stephen Thomas & Alyssa Pearson

Producers - Alyssa Pearson & Cory Green


Thanks to everyone who entered the contest this year. A record number of scripts were submitted -- all told 9 scripts & treatments were submitted. Thanks, also to a field of alumni judges who helpfully weighed in to distinguish between the scripts' many merits.

These scripts will now enter a process of development and one or both will be produced by a team student producers, actors, musicians, designers and crew persons.

If you're interested in entering the process, now is an ideal time, we have many various positions available.

Congratulations again to the winners!

Another Delay!

The competition between this year's screenplays included so MANY scripts, and so many scripts of similar quality....

...that we're calling in a second round of judges. Since the number of directors selected is tied to the number of scripts selected -- we'll defer announcing any of our winners until WEDNESDAY at 5 p.m..

So sorry to keep you guessing!

Thanks for your hard work!
