Screenwriter With a Black Animation Screenplay That Rivals the Movie “Sing” is Seeking Representation

Leon Fowler, screenwriter

Nationwide — Leon Fowler, who has been writing for over 30 years, has come up with a screenplay for a major motion picture animation for children of color (something rarely seen in Hollywood) that will rival the highly successful movie SING!

That idea is 8 NODS, an inspiring, action-packed adventure that digs into the competitive world of the record deal. The story line is compelling and exciting with familiar beats that pulsate from the beginning of the movie to the end. The movie pulls you into a fantasy world where the main character faces immeasurable conflicts on an epic journey that will push him to the edge and make him confront his biggest fear.

In this fantasy animation, a timid mouse from the sewer slums is accidentally swept out of the only place he knows. He lands in a big city full of frightening and unsavory creatures. When other animals soon discover his incredible and spectacular ability to rap, he becomes an overnight sensation. After signing a record deal with the notorious Rat Trail Records, the timid mouse is forced into a nationally televised rap battle against the record label’s number one star.

Unfortunately, the show is rigged. Is the timid mouse ready to risk it all? The winner will surprise you.

Agents and managers who are connected in the entertainment business: like anyone else, Leon says he just needs one opportunity for the right person to read the first 50 pages of this remarkable script.
