Koopersmith's iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009-2010 hits a Chord at famed Scriptapalooza's International Film Competition.

NEWS FLASH: August, 2010

Chicago, Illinois USA: My Spec Movie Script (1 of 3 penned to date) entitled:

iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009-2010

recently placed in Scriptapalooza’s International Screenplay Competition: 2010 based in Hollywood, California, now in its 12TH year. The Winners are found at: http://scriptapalooza.com/Winners.html

I have been diligently working on this 7-Part Movie Franchise since January, 2009 cultivated from Decades of Inspirations, Observations & Revelations. Surprisingly enough, it took me only 2 Months to write this particular Script that was selected. 377 QuarterFinalists were culled from 3541 total Submissions from across the Planet, representing all Sectors of Society & Genres of Prototypes, an Honor indeed. Mathematically, that Figure alone represents:

10.64570996893553%

of the total Entries reviewed. Winning a Contest of this nature is sure to make Movie-Making History and set some Writers’ Careers into High Gear, rating as a ‘Dream come true.’ In my particular case, this Journey all began with me finding GORF (that’s FROG back-words), a Plush TOY with a wide 11” Grin & 24” tall @ Walgreens in January of 2005. Realizing his Look alone could make the saddest Person smile and forget their Pain, Woes and impending Circumstances, I soon realized THE FROG (with his ample Amounts of Mass Appeal) would ‘break the Ice’ between People as I embarked on a GREEN CAMPAIGN designating GORF as:

‘Chicago’s First Green Mascot & The Icon of The Green Movement’

and nicknaming him ‘The Grin Reaper ®’.

What was surprising was that I did not even know what a Movie Script looked like prior to Saturday, August 8, 2009. Motivated by a Friend who complimented my Writing Style, I then taught myself Screenwriting per various Library BKS. I wrote non-stop from August 8, 2009 through April 6, 2010 using GORF & 9 other TOYS as THE CHARACTOYS®, all found in my TOY BOX. This Chapter in my Story is still unfolding and grows (more exciting!) every Day.

The relevant Topics shared by SKiN (totaling 7 BKS & 7 Movies) & iN THE COMPANY OF ANTS ©2009-2010 are primarily based around the universal Concepts of:

- Eliminating Racism;
- Dispelling Mixed Signals & Ironies; &
- Getting to The Heart of ‘What Matters’

MY CONCLUSION ABOUT RECEIVING THIS AWARD: “Writing does not stop at any ne Technique. It is a Lifelong Process that grows and matures with us as The Craft evolves. For this reason, I highly encourage others to actively pursue their Creative Talents in many diverse ways that explore these Avenues and to allow themselves to see what’s just beyond the next Bend.”
