Stowe Story Labs is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards Fellowships.
Andi Delott -- Andi's feature film script, FAITH, is a drama about Jennifer, a Pastor’s wife searching for answers about her son’s death following an initiation rite at a Christian University. FAITH plots Jennifer's journey, which makes her question her own faith and how far she’ll go to find the truth.
Jake Taylor -- Jake's 1-hour TV Drama Pilot, WICCA PUNK, plots the journey of 13-year-old witch Harper when she moves with her family to a coastal Oregon town, attracting the unwanted attention of a malevolent witch’s coven at her new school.
Andi Delott is a novelist, advertising executive and emerging screenwriter. Andi's writing focuses on female-driven screenplays and novels. Her screenplay, THE DEAL, was accepted into the 2017 New York Women in Film and Television Writers Lab. As a novelist, she has published five romances under a pseudonym and currently writes contemporary and upmarket fiction. Andi heads up the ABC TV account at an entertainment advertising agency in Los Angeles. As ABC's agency of record from 2000 - 2018, she serves as the main client contact as well as the internal creative lead. In this role, Andi has helped successfully helped brand, launch and sustain multi-year marketing campaigns for TV classics including Lost, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Dancing with the Stars, and Modern Family to name a few. Now, in addition to working with ABC, Andi's clients also include Netflix, Amazon, and Disney.
Jake Taylor lives in Mesa, Arizona, but his heart remains in the Northwest. Other than placing well in one other contest, making the 2018 PAGE Quarterfinals with WICCA PUNK is his first major success with a script. His day job is a Baker. He camps, fishes, hikes and grills whenever he can. He has been married to his gorgeous wife for almost six years. Together they like camping, furniture shopping, and DIY projects on their house. They are also expecting their first child.
We love these projects for plotting difficult journeys for these two disparate women. We are excited to award Andi and Jake the 5th Annual PAGE Fellowships. To make the choice more meaningful, these two scripts stood out in a very, very strong field.
"This is our fifth year working with Stowe Story Labs," said PAGE Executive Director Kristen Overn. "We are excited for Jake and Andi and applaud their success in being selected for what we are sure will be a productive lab," she said.
"Every year, working with the PAGE team, we discover great new talents from all walks of life," said David Rocchio, President and Founder of the Labs. "This year is no different. We are excited to work with Jake and Andi and, as well, the many other PAGE Quarterfinalists attending this fall's lab, bringing interesting stories, varied backgrounds, and unique voices to our community. I want to thank Kristin and the team at PAGE for this wonderful partnership. We look forward to doing more together in the future," he said.
