Screenwriters Workshop member Al Easter has won the Saint Cloud State University Short Screenplay Competition. A jury of three unanimously selected Easter’s screenplay, entitled “The Jigsaw Puzzle,” from the field of entries. Asked what it feels like to win, Easter said: “[The] $200 prize isn’t much but the script is only 5 pages long so that’s $40 a page. Not bad.”
Contest organizers required submitted scripts be producible in St. Cloud and limited to 5-pages in length. When asked if he could provide a copy of the script for our readers, Al said: “Wait for the DVD.” A short while later the script showed up in our e-mail. You can read it here. Production is slated for the end of May in St. Cloud. Easter is a member of Screenwriters Workshop’s Sunday evening script group. Congratulations, Al!
