The UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television has presented screenwriting awards to five students for work completed during the 1996-97 professional program in screenwriting.
The student’s feature-length submissions were judged by faculty members Deborah Amelon (“Exit to Eden”), Corey Mandell (the upcoming “Metropolis”) and Valerie West (NBC’s “Escape From the Streets”), among others.
Honored with cash awards were:
Gabriella Aratow, for her adventure-comedy, “The Glass Harmonica”; Jeff Bacon, for the teen drama “Gridiron”; Barbara Covington for the time travel-themed “Moments in Time”; Eduard Ersolvas for “Crazy Man Michael,” a coming-of-age story set in the ’60s; and Dan Williams for the college drama “Close Enough to Perfect.”
