When given the assignment of writing the first act of a feature film; his mind immediately went back to his West Texas roots and his favorite sport – bull riding. Hughes left Texas in 2008, when he was accepted into the UTLA program and spent the entire summer in Los Angeles interning in Hollywood for Ridley Scott at Scott Free Productions and for Ron Howard at Imagine Entertainment. During that time, Brad had a small hand in such projects as “Body of Lies,” “Robin Hood,” “The Incredible Shrinking Man,” and “Friday Night Lights.” One night while sitting on Venice Beach, as usual, his mind wandering back to the Texas landscape, the lifestyle, and community he missed. He decided to dive back into the writing process and the official road to “Tough Draw” began. His passion for this project and dedication to creating an authentic film that accurately portrays the sport of bull riding and the community that embraces it has been the driving force that has assembled the team and support that stand behind “Tough Draw” today.
