Here is a little background on Matthew:MatthewHeinze_pic

Matthew Heinze has been writing movies since he was a kid growing up in Chicago. He learned the actual screenwriting art form and format at Columbia College where he majored in Fiction Writing. After graduating, he and several close friends started a small indie film company where he was a writer and director. During their 7 years of collaboration, they pumped out short and feature-length comedies which showed in many film festivals. 

For the past 8 years Matthew has been working in the field of Instructional Design, developing and writing online training scripts and interactive course material for a wide variety of clients.
Matthew moved to Austin, Texas in 2012 and has since been focused on taking his screenwriting to the next level.

 

Here is a brief synopsis of the winning script:

Belle Sweatburg leaves her inactive comfort zone to chase the man of her dreams into the culture of long distance running, hurdling career and family obstacles along the way.
