Run gamut from ghosts to Santa Claus

Five students in the UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television were presented screenwriting awards June 20 for works written during the 1999-2000 school year. Feature-length scripts submitted by students were judged by a panel of professional writers and faculty members.

The winning scripts were:

  • “Trial Marriage” by Lisa Caruso of West Orange, N.J., about Manhattan attorneys who are representing opposite sides in a high-profile divorce case while planning their own wedding.

  • “The Last Days of Hell’s Kitchen” by John Kelly of New York City, about an estranged husband and wife who are devastated by the loss of their daughter and reunite to steal enough money to escape to Paris.

  • “Ghostland” by Fernley Phillips of London, described as “Ghostbusters” meets “Seven.”

  • “Renshaw’s Modern Manners” by Amanda Roberts from Hornsby, Australia, a romantic period comedy about an opinionated city-dweller who is challenged by a country girl.
