About the winner:

Trashman Dewey Binder’s steadfast pursuit of his real family has come to an unsuccessful end. But, it’s just the beginning when he must pull off a dumpster to debonair masquerade to stop the eco-vigilante Greens from buying his company. His unquenched need for a family drives him in the wrong direction away from the parents who raised him, his fellow trash comrades and into the dysfunctions of the Greens, a “real” family whose blurred boundaries and sexual missteps prove to be better thrown away than recycled. Unfortunately, he finds himself in love with Shelly Green and must salvage a second chance once his real identity is exposed. When it counts, Dewey summons his inner-trashman and the support of those who have always loved him and attempts to drive his big beautiful trash truck straight to his destiny.

SOLID WASTE a comedy set in the world of trash, and takes a comedic look at what it means to “go green”, self-sustaining energy and the ever-growing world of eco-friendly efforts to bring about environmental change. Why will some of us only “go” kicking and screaming? Who knows, this story might just move people from “YUK” to “WOW” when they think about trash and all the opportunities it brings. It also addresses the concept that "family" is what you make of it and should be cherished not thrown away.



And a bit about Anne Kruse:

This second generation native Southern Californian aspires to bring her comedic voice to the screen. The leap was taken and she has been attempting to break in the biz full-time subsequent to a seventeen year stint as a career counselor. Living the paradox of being a career counselor and not knowing what she wanted to be when she grew up changed once screenwriting became her passion, and there’s no looking back. Helping others find what their passion is and making plans to pursue it provided Anne with a clear understanding of character development, motivation, inspiration, conflict and most of all perseverance. She graduated from the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television’s screenwriting program in 03’ and has her M.S. in counseling from CSU, Long Beach. She looks forward to the day when she tells her accountant that screenwriting is no longer just a hobby, but rather the biggest dream this girl could dream and it has been ACHIEVED.
