Fairfield Studios launch their Best Screenplay Annual Competition

In celebration of the budding successes and mounting presence of the movie and entertainment industry in the Shreveport-Bossier area, Fairfield Studios launched the first annual Shreveport-Bossier Best Screenplay Competition, encouraging local talent to make their voices heard.

The contest website,, drew an astounding 80,000 hits during the mere three months of competition, offering up a delicious grand prize for emerging screenplay writers. Not only would the winning script be produced by Fairfield Studios, but then also publically premiered at Shreveport‟s own Robinson Film Center and entered into film festivals across the country.

Fundraising is underway at Kickstarter with very generous incentives. Donors can also donate through the Bossier Arts Council and qualify for tax credits.

Grand Prize went to “Lobster Boy,” written by Terry Kendricks, whose showstealing screenplay went on to steal the stage once again, when announced to a live crowd during Shreveport‟s Red River Revel, in October 2010. Additionally, Mary Kim Sipes‟ screenplay, “Izzy‟s Christmas Wish” grabbed the People‟s Choice Award.

Production for Lobster Boy is scheduled for May 2011.
