Movie Poet – The Final Curtain - post author Don is proud to announce the winners of our December 2014 short script competition.

“Christmas Cards” by David M Troop ~ First Place
An elderly man spends Christmas with his friends and family.

“Fair Share” by Pete Barry ~ Second Place
Fay and Eddie find out their relationship is built on lies, damned lies, and statistics.

“Side Scroller” by T. James DeStein ~ Third Place
A video game sprite must overcome the obstacles faced by its predecessors in order to move the world forward.

I am very sad to report that this is the last Movie Poet winner announcement. It is a sad day for the screenwriting community. A lot of screenwriters got his or her start at Movie Poet honing skills with short scripts and a supportive community. I was very lucky to have a supportive relationship with Chris and there are many aspects of Movie Poet that I strived to emulate.

Chris is going to focus on NJ Film School. I hope that those of you in the New Providence, NJ area can support the en devour.

– Don

I am one of the lucky ones to have met Chris as I took two screenwriting classes with him a few years back. He is a wonderful teacher and I’ve learned so much from him. He introduced me to MP and it was there that my love of 5 pages scripts evolved. I will miss MP and I’m glad the SS is here for us screenwriters.

Glad to see three of MP’s all time best writers finished in the top 3 for MP’s last contest. Movie Poet was a great site. I made life long friends there, not to mention the invaluable screenwriting lesson I learned. Chris is a class act and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for giving us Movie Poet.

It has been a great four years at MoviePoet, I’d like to thank Chris and his Mod Squad for giving me the opportunity to learn and hone the craft of screenwriting. Also, thanks to my fellow Poets and friends for their comments and guidance.

I truly will miss you all.
