Address of Movie agent
Dear Sir or Madam:
WHAT IF YOU WERE LOST IN THE DEEP DESERT AND DISCOVERED THAT WILE E. COYOTE WAS REAL… AND THAT HE DESPARATELY NEEDS YOUR HELP?
I am seeking an agent for my latest screenplay: “THE LAST FRIENDS OF WILLIE COYOTE”.
Logline: “A powerful madman fueled by a wrongful revenge unleashes a terrible war upon Wile and his people. Wile has to change his ways fast or he and all of his friends are doomed. Issue in doubt”.
Tagline: “A cartoon becomes no laughing matter”.
Genre: Fantasy/Action-Adventure (NON-ANIMATED / LIVE-ACTION), PG-13)
What DID ever happen to Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner? Set in 2002 in the southwestern desert on a vast secret crumbling airbase commanded by a legendary but tortured officer, this screenplay not only finally answers that question but goes much deeper into their personal and darker world, featuring unusual peoples and strange events. It is very loosely based upon the classic cartoon characters created by Chuck Jones in “THE ROADRUNNER”. During a nightmarish conflict, loyalties, honor and courage are put to the ultimate test in a surreal landscape. Everyone’s last hope for survival lies in the lengendary perseverance and determination of Wile E. Coyote himself.
Personal: 26 years of fiction/non-fiction writing experience, Army/Navy-officer/enlisted, 24 year veteran street deputy sheriff.
Education: A.S.(Fresno City College), B.A.(Calif State University Fresno/CSUF), M.A.(National University Fresno/psychology).
