Here’s some background on Tory:

“I’m a young 24-year-old actor, martial artist, and writer from Little Rock, AR. I’m currently living in Burbank, CA, with goals to become an great actor in major action movies and comedies. I enjoy fitness, dancing, and love martial arts movies. I’ve acted in plays and short films since I was a child, and have always loved writing movies. I especially wanted to write movies I could star in. I used to write everything I watched on tv to learn, and when I got Blade II on DVD as a kid, you could see the script if you put it in a computer, so that’s where I learned structure and formatting.”

And here is a short introduction to the script:

RINGMASTER is about a college student who enters an underground MMA tournament for money for college. On a night out, after offending a woman, Cristina Perez, in a bar, Devon Marks gets beat up by her. After finding out she’s his new Spanish teacher and seeing her boyfriend, MMA bad boy Aiden Mars,  beat her in front of him, he decides to let her train him for the tournament. With a bit of laughs, intense action, and life lessons, I believe it can be an inspiring movie to see.

Congratulations to Tory on being named our overall winner!
