Titans Compete in Script Writing Contest

Seven radio-TV-film students recently represented Cal State Fullerton in the Paramount Pictures’ KNOW HIV/AIDS short screenplay competition. The effort garnered honorable mentions for Titans Eric J. Olague for his script “Graduation Day” and Erick Lynch for “Vampire Awareness.”

The contest was created in a partnership between Paramount, Viacom Inc. and the KNOW HIV/AIDS Foundation to raise awareness and funds to help educate young people on protection and proper medical attention for HIV andAIDS.

Nearly 50 entries from 11 Southern California colleges and universities were judged by film industry and communications professionals from Paramount Pictures Corp., CBS, Viacom Inc., Kaiser Family Foundation, mtvU and Showtime Networks. The entries were judged for creativity effectiveness, adherence to the topic, factual accuracy and production feasibility.

On May 3 the competitors were honored during a luncheon on the Paramount Studios lot. Joining Olague and Lynch at the festivities were the other CSUF competitors David Guttenberg, Rose Meza, Rob Kirby, John Texas and Erin Larsen.
