Meet our Spring 2017 Screenwriting Contest Third Placed Winner: BURNER by Bob Canning!

Bob’s script had a hot start, with three big plot twists in the opening ten pages. That’s a great way to catch a reader’s eye! The script has a strong balance of action, comedy, romance and drama. Check out Bob’s short bio and logline for the script below: we’ll be working with him to refine these further during the coming year.

Here’s what Bob wins…

  • Bob has already started his one-year of free script development with us, and receives a $200 prize fund.
  • Once Bob and his script is ready, we’ll begin pitching his script to the industry! Guaranteed!
  • Plus, he gets an InkTip Script Listing and have his logline featured in InkTip Magazine so he can promote himself and his script to InkTip’s entire network of producers, managers, and agents. InkTip Magazine is sent to over 15,000 producers and representatives.

Here’s some background on Bob:

Bob Canning was a writer for the Disney Studios for 14 years, and is a published playwright with two international awards. His first full-length screenplay, a direct-to-video comedy called Takin’ it Off!, went Platinum in sales and begat two sequels.

Blessée (Wounded), a romantic drama, is currently in the capable hands of an Oscar-nominated European director, and his globetrotting comedy about a 1940s James Bond, The Adventures of the Velvet Cat, has won several awards. He is excited about the reception his western-fantasy, The Ghosts of Silver Gulch, is getting, and for this award for his thriller, Burner.

And here is Bob’s short introduction to the script:

Fargo with sand. A Palm Springs police detective must put aside her health and marital problems to solve a brutal homicide, while the hitman responsible is now experiencing uncharacteristic bouts of guilt and anger after killing the wrong person.

Congratulations to Bob on being named our Third Placed winner!
