Jeff Hand's animated script, LARRY, LORD OF DARKNESS, won the animated/family genre category in the 2014 Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Contest. This is the first time this script has been entered in a contest. There were nearly 7000 scripts entered in 11 feature and TV categories.

Back in 2011 I woke one morning with the basis for a historically set horror film in my head. (The premise: a trainload of Tsarist Russians steams eastwards, fleeing the Russian Revolution. A pack of Siberian Zombies bars their way.)
Then titled ZOMBIE EXPRESS, I pitched it at the London Screenwriters' Festival before a couple of hundred people, one of whom liked it enough to ask me to submit it to his company, Iron Box Films. Retitled GLAZVOROV, with a new monster - and no zombies - but still set in the Russian Revolution, it then had a rehearsed reading before John Madden and a live audience at BAFTA in London, in the Rocliffe New Writing Forum. Soon after that I clinched a funded development deal with iron Box, a fledgling British company with a growing slate of films in producution and development.
