Screenplays

The Founder of Angry Bear Film Productions, Chris Griffin, wrote seven feature screenplays, co-wrote two feature screenplays, and wrote three television pilots.  In 2020, he decided to put those screenplays to the test.  He entered six of them into competitions.  This is how they fared.
