Parker Briscoe, 3rd place winner in TWP November 2004 – April 2005 teleplay/short competition for his short script, “Folklore,” not only went on to put his script on film but won best mini short fantasy at Shockerfest in California. Folklore was also nominated for a best short fantasy film award at the Bare Bones film festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma. It won recognition in Canada and was chosen to play the first Fantasy/SciFi International short film festival in Athens, Greece.
Parker is currently writing/developing a feature film with a wildlife film producer in Canada. The film, entitled "Cottontail,” is a dramatic piece about the family of a missing First Nations girl, MAGGIE, 24, and how her disappearance affects the small town and native reservation from which she originates. The main character is Maggie's younger sister, CHARLEE, 19, who winds up on a path of substance abuse and gangs, which threatens her with the same fate as her sister.
“I am currently writing the script and we are looking for some good acting talent to put a fire under this project,” said Briscoe.
Parker, in collaboration with his partner Matt Paproski, are developing a film studio in Saskatchewan, Canada. “The money isn't in yet, but the work and drive to get
there sure is,” said Briscoe.
