Motion Pictures major Hannah Wacholtz recently became a top ten finalist in the Screenwriter’s Network Screenplay Competition in the short film category. Wacholtz’s shot film entitled “Cherie On the Rocks” describes the unlikely friendship of a sex worker and a tube player.
“The screenplay is a drama with a sweet twist, diving into mental health issues and the stereotypes that come with being a sex worker. I try to feature women and a diverse cast in all of my screenplays and Cherie is no exception,” said Wacholtz.
Although Wacholtz didn’t end up winning the competition, she continues to submit her screenplay to other competitions in hopes of becoming a director and screenwriter post-graduation.
