Ms. Claire Hutchinson, M.A., received her training in screenwriting from UCLA. She is an accomplished writer of multiple screenplays and plays in a wide range of genres, and the co-writer of two film soundtracks. She has had poetry published, and her Master's thesis, "Conrad and the Idea of Progress" is an accepted critical work on the writings of Joseph Conrad, the 19th-early 20th century novelist. In 2006, her drama-comedy play, "Harry and Marge", won third place in the Humana Festival of New American Plays for the Actor's Theatre in Louisville, KY. Her short screenplays have consistently placed highly in the American Gem Short Screenplay Contests. In 2009, her short drama, "That's Amore," was a Top Ten Finalist in the Mafia Short Script Competition sponsored by Pavaline Studios. Ms. Hutchinson founded Ambassador Communications in 1999. Under this banner, she performs script consulting for various individuals and companies.
Claire also publishes the Christian Screenwriters' Newsletter, which has a subscriber base of approximately 550 screenwriters and producers. In addition, she is the Founder of the Faith and Values Screenwriting Competition, a competition geared to finding the best faith-based and family-oriented screenplays for production. The first place winner of this competition went on to sell his script to Believe Pictures (Michael Landon, Jr. and Brian Bird). After Claire critiqued the second place winner's script, the second place winner later submitted the script to the Kairos Prize contest and won 2nd place. In 2010, Claire finished writing a WWII documentary entitled "For the Love of Freedom" for Jeffrey Worthington, Producer/Director of Worthington Media (www.forteloveoffreedom.com). The film is now in post-production. In 2010, Claire's TV series "Manitoba Crime Scenes" was optioned by Flat Rock Motion Pictures LLC.
