An 11-year-old Mansfield boy has created a short animated film, which won a contest to be played on the cable station Ion and NBC 5.

Sam Scott's film is called In The Cookie Part 1 and features a pair of kids who are sucked into a fortune cookie.

"They're in the 17th parallel," he said. "They're in a different universe."

His proud mama has made him watch it a thousand times.

 "I was just so excited. He never ceases to amaze me, but you can't help it when you see your kid on TV," Reagan Scott said. "I just screamed really loud."

Sam's mother said she didn't even know he was entering the contest until she found him at the computer in the middle of the night during the summer.

I went in there to see what he was doing, and he said, 'I have to finish making this film," she said.

She said he had just created his own Web site, so this contest was right up his alley.

The film airs Sunday on NBC 5 during the Zula Patrols at 10 a.m.
