By May 20, 2020Blog, Contests, Featured

We are excited to announce the winners of the 2019 ScreenCraft Animation Screenplay Competition. Selected from over 700 entries, Lemmings by Chris A. Bolton has been selected as the feature winner, No Quarter by Travis Kehoe has been selected as the Kids TV Winner, and Definitely Cursed by Brennan Gilpatrick & Erin Walsh has been selected as the Adult TV Winner.

Lemmings is based on a true historical inaccuracy. When a rebellious lemming discovers her tribe’s sacred tradition of jumping into the ocean is based on a lie, she tries to convince her village to stop the ceremony before it’s too late.

In No Quarter, when a tween slacker is sucked into a fantasy adventure game, he must battle an evil Dark Lord to win his freedom or be trapped forever.

In Definitely Cursed, a young witch and her human co-worker navigate the daily frights of working at ‘Definitely Cursed,’ a store that deals in dark and magical artifacts.

In addition to the ScreenCraft team, this year’s jury was comprised of execs, program heads, and writers from DreamWorksNickelodeonThe Simpsons, Spirited Away and Pixar.
