ScreenCraft Names Fellowship Winners

ScreenCraft has announced the recipients of their 3rd annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship. Presented by Final Draft, the fellowship is designed to advance the careers of talented screenwriters through ongoing consultation and introductions to key entertainment executives and talent representatives.

The recipients are:

  • Dante Russo, for his half-hour pilot Haters
  • Nancy Duff, for her hour pilot Dead Drop
  • Heidi R. Willis, for her feature Black Sunday


Haters, a biting dramedy, centers on Kimberly Noh, a self-destructive millennial who discovers that not much has changed when she returns home to Long Island for the funeral of her high school best friend and former ringleader of her disparate clique of “haters.” Disillusioned by the reality of adulthood, she discovers that confronting the past she’s been trying to escape is the only way to take charge of her future.

In Dead Drop, 14-year-old Alexandra Sawyer finds herself placed in Gilbert Hall after her father suddenly goes missing. To outsiders, Gilbert Hall is a group home. To the GH5 Special Forces unit of the CIA, it’s a highly guarded safe house for orphaned offspring of the CIA’s elite. Alexandra must now come to terms with the startling truth about her parents while being trained with her peers as a junior agent and pursuing her own agenda.

Based on true events, Black Sunday tells the harrowing story of a Depression-era family that gets trapped in their rural Oklahoma farm house by the worst dust storm in U.S. history, only to find their safe haven turned into a house of horrors when they take in two disturbed drifters seeking shelter from the storm.

Selected from over 2,000 writers who submitted features and pilots globally, Russo, Duff and Willis will each receive a $1,000 writing grant and be gathered in Los Angeles to meet the following mentors: Geoffrey Fletcher, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Precious and Violet & Daisy; Diana Ossana, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Brokeback Mountain; Robert Moresco, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Crash and producer of Million Dollar Baby; Lawrence Grey, producer with two recent seven-figure spec sales to his credit; Michael Colleary, award-winning writer of Face/Off, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Firehouse Dog; and Ari Lubet, literary manager at 3Arts Entertainment, the company behind such TV shows as Orange is the New Black, Parks and Recreation, Louie, The Mindy Project, Silicon Valley, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and more.
