Winning ANIMATION Short Screenplay: BARRINGTON BUNNY, by Sandy Wolf

This Christian allegory is to be animated in a surreal style, suggesting religious pageantry and a supernatural presence. The story is embellished by John Luther Adams music suggesting the crystalline beauty of the arctic winter. The use of dialects and bits of costuming and props suggest an international significance to the plot.

Animation Short Screenplay: A STITCH IN TIME by Rita Pomade

A Stitch in Time is a fable about universal love and redemption using sound instead of dialogue. The mind speaks many languages, the heart only one. This story is about the language of the heart. The animation tries to show how the other is us, and concludes with a joyful celebration that comes from that awareness.

Winning ANIMATION Short Screenplay – BATROOM by Crafty St James

Genre: Animation, Comedy

Two Bats have an awkward exchange at the urinal, while waiting for the greatest baseball game of all time to start.

CAST LIST:

Narrator: Elizabeth Rose Morriss
Little Bat: Jack Comerford
Big Bat: Jordy Kieto
Announcer: Brian Carleton

Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

BATROOM is about a young bat whose adrenaline pumps from the anticipation for the upcoming huge baseball game and is too anxious to be able to urinate in a public restroom.

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Animation.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

It’s clever, funny and even if for two minutes, if it can pull people away from their everyday routines, it is worth it.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Cute and clever.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

The Bellboy by Jerry Lewis

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

It was written in 2008 and just sat on my hard drive until 2017.

How many stories have you written?

Several hundred.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Follow the Leader by Rakim

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Figuring out the details for the restroom was challenging.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Acting, producing and filmmaking. I love to imagine stories, scenarios, and fantastic events to make real. The whole process from thought to manifestation in exhilarating.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

After rediscovering my script I went searching for a festival that accepted short animated screenplays and after finding FEEDBACK Animation Film and Screenplay Festival, I knew that this was the one for BATROOM.

I am the type of person that appreciates feedback and thought the feedback was on point, concise, progressive and offered very thoughtful creative suggestions.
