Nevada Film Office Announces 2003 Screenwriting Competition Winners

BEST SCREENPLAY 1st Place
“CIVIL SERVANT”
Thriller


When a slacker college student lifts what seems to be a declassified government file as a quick way to complete an assignment, he never expects to uncover hidden info about top-secret government “breeding” of children with ESP, telekinesis and other mind-blowing mental powers. He becomes obsessed with tracking down these “subjects” and the government is equally determined to destroy the trail, him, his girl and anyone else in their way.

2nd Place - “SERPENT WATCH”
Family Adventure/Mystery


A family adventure about four young troublemakers from a remote Nevada town who uncover a tunnel that leads to an abandoned observatory under their local lake. Their secret discovery raises new questions about a legendary sea serpent that haunts the waters. The kids risk their reputations and eventually their lives to solve the mystery and ultimately revive their dying community.

Ms. Andrea Gyertson Nasfell

3rd Place - “A PLUMMER IN VEGAS” Comedy


In a family of plumbers named Plummer, a young man discovers the truth: he's adopted, he's NOT fated to be a plumber, he's Jewish! His destiny and his birth father are in Las Vegas. Mistaken identity, hilarious misassumptions and slapstick encounters with everything from wiseguys to Yiddish slang, rigged craps to rich women, all lead him to a mad-dash finish on his journey of self‑discovery, with nary a toilet in sight.
