LOS ANGELES, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sci-fi screenplay "Genesis Prime" was named a semifinalist in the Scriptapalooza Screenplay contest, making it the 12th time the screenplay has won or placed in a national screenplay competition in the past 12 months. Written by an unrepresented Los Angeles Writer/Director by the name of Joe Crouch, Genesis Prime is a four-quadrant screenplay that combines family, drama and comedy in a fun sci-fi masterpiece.
