Fresh Voices Names Grand Prize Winner

The Fresh Voices Screenwriting Competition has named Chris Bowen’s Science Fiction entry Travis 6 as their Grand Prize Winner for 2014-15.

The script tells the story of a grieving man, wracked with guilt, who has six chances to go back in time and save the woman he loves from a tragic accident.

Travis 6 is a suspenseful journey inspired by such classics as Rashomon and Reservoir Dogs, as we watch the same story play out non-linearly, from several different perspectives. In the case of Travis 6, they are all the perspectives of the same man as he travels back in time and replays the same event over again, each time learning more from his prior iteration as he tries to change the course of history. The script explores universal themes of love, guilt and the need to let go of the past and move forward after tragedy.

Competition Chairman Joel Mendoza said, “What I admire most is that Chris wasn’t afraid to take some major risks with this piece. That they paid off exponentially in the script’s emotional journey is a testament to the strength and originality of the writing. For this reason Travis 6 rightly won not just the Competition, but the Courage & Fortitude Award as well. As we debated the winning scripts internally at Fresh Voices, there was one script we couldn’t stop talking about and it was clear we had found our winner.”

Originally from Wilson, North Carolina, Christopher moved to Los Angeles in January of 2015 after earning his MFA in Screenwriting from Northwestern University and being named a 2014 Nicholl Fellowship Quarter Finalist. Chris now takes home the $3,000 Grand Prize Cash Award as well as a generous prize package from industry sponsors.

In receiving his Grand Prize Award Chris Bowen said, “I am beyond honored that Fresh Voices has chosen my script for the Grand Prize Award. This script in particular is very personal to me, so to learn that it connects with others is immensely rewarding.”
