Bradford Richardson and his Cat
Bradford Richardson and his Cat

Just received this email from screenwriter Bradford Richardson:

“As you know, SAVE THE CAT was a major epiphany for me.

This past spring I used your Beat Sheet to rework a favorite old script of mine, the coming-of-age Actioner, EVEL LIKE KNIEVEL, based on actual events.

The logline is: Summer of ’74. Twin Falls rebel, Kyle, makes a wild leap into manhood after Evel Knievel awards him with a security job behind the scenes of his Snake Canyon River Jump. When the event expands beyond Woodstock proportions, and a riotous gang of bikers threatens to destroy Evel’s Skycycle, Kyle comes up with the plan that saves the day.

I just found out that EVEL LIKE KNIEVEL has been chosen as a Second Rounder in the 2008 Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Competition. Maybe this is the heat which will help me find a manager and agent.

THANK YOU… and your Cat!”
