Student's First Screenplay Ranked Top 10 Percent

Lydia Griffiths '14 scored when she submitted her very first screenplay to the BlueCat Screenplay Competition. The Order was ranked in the top 10 percent among more than 4,000 submissions.

Lydia, a History and Film Studies double major, combines both her passions in The Order, a fictional story set in 1421 centering on English Baron Jasper of Hareford and the assassin sent to kill him. The work was conceived in a BW screenwriting class and through her research on 15th century England and the 12th century Islamic Assassin Sect.

The modest author shares that she submitted to BlueCat for "the exposure and the feedback," not expecting the sweet surprise she received six months after submission.

After graduation, Lydia's dream career is filmmaker, screenwriter or producer.
