Universal Picture's Dwight Caines Reveals Winner of KITS National Short Screenplay Competition

Dwight Caines [President, Domestic Marketing, Universal Pictures] joined us for a quick Q&A session with our Top 3 Finalists to reveal the results.

And the winner is...

Rainy Days

By James Gutierrez

"Abandoned as a baby, Percy’Q traverses through life attempting to overcome the traumas of his past.”

The reactions of our youth -- especially in the way they were truly rooting for one another -- were priceless. Each of the Top 3 were leading at different points, and with only a few scores left to count, there were only 12 points separating first and third. No doubt in our minds all 3 films deserve to be made.

A huge CONGRATULATIONS is deserved for all of the youth who entered scripts, making it a very close competition. This is just one of many competitions you will enter as screenwriters during your careers; your stories and skills will only get better.

A big THANK YOU to all of the judges who helped make this competition a huge success!
