BREAKING NEWS (11.13.12)


PLAYball tops the list in the “Feature Screenplay-Family” category at the 4th annual All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival.

 

PLAYball, a screenplay I wrote with Melissa Murillo, took First Place in the 4th annual All Sports Los Angeles Film Festival. The festival, held this past weekend at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, features films, documentaries and screenplays that demonstrate a love for sports and competition.

 

I could best describe this festival by saying, it's like getting together with your sports-loving friends and watching ESPN.  Last year my screenplay, The Little White Kart, took 4th place here in the “Original Feature” category.

 

PLAYball is the story of a 12-year-old boy who becomes the General Manager of the Chicago Cubs. He brings technology to the game and, with the help of his best friend, writes an iPad App that may very well give the Cubbies their first World Series win in 104 years!

 

Check out pictures from the festival below!
