Our Two Honorable Mentions:

Before we get to the Big Three in this contest, I want to give a “congratulations” to the following two entries that, while close, didn’t quite make it. I think these are potential family films, which as you know, are a lucrative segment of the D2DVD market. I would urge each to revise their comedy loglines and scripts along these lines. I am posting these loglines as they were sent to me. Both are okay, but could use some “sprucing up.”

The House That Jack Built by Jack Whalen of Mansfield, MA.

A 25-year-old orphan discovers he is the only heir to a Newport mansion. He turns it into an orphanage to the frustration of the local Historical Society.

Poof! by Jeff Edwards and Josh Forbes of Los Angeles, CA

Two amateur magicians kidnap the beloved white tigers of the world’s greatest illusionists, (think Seigfreid and Roy) and hold them for ransom in exchange for learning the secrets of their magic.

Again, congratulations!

Stay tuned…

I don't think you could release a film called poof in the UK due to it's anti-gay connotations. Although it would tie in with the Siegfried and Roy angle.
