Kevin Richardson (Film/Video 81)

Kevin Richardson (back right in photo) has been working with John Hart studios to develop the classic comic strip “Wizard of Id” into a feature-length film. In addition to story and script development, Kevin has reached out to celebrity voices and been pitching at the studios. “Working as an independent animation producer is not for the weak of heart. It has many bring a new generation into the tent and entertain them.” Big names like Chuck Jones once tried to develop the property, as did Steven Spielberg with John Candy, a screenplay writer, as well as Jim Henson’s team. “There is definitely a colorful cast of characters and situations, not to mention thousands of strips to refer to for inspiration and gags.”
