ACTION Best Scene Screenplay Reading: CADILLAC MIKE, by Julian Brantley

Mike is confident and his morals and good nature are what set him apart. The opening of this story shows Mike going about his everyday routine, whether it’s going to the gas station to fill up or working security at a strip club. This screenplay has a certain rhythm that follows Mike as he goes from a typical routine to a clear mission. What’s great about the hook of this story is that Mike’s characterization is made very clear through three interactions – with Old Skool, Dwayne, and Curtis.

CAST LIST:

Narration – THOMAS FOURNIER
Mike (40s black) – 6 – JOLLY AMOAKO
Old Skool (60s) – 7 – LOGAN FORSYTH
