Poker Noir

We are raising funds for a pitch-presentation of the feature film POKER NOIR. The video will be a polished compilation of scenes - truly portraying the shooting aesthetic, characters in full costume and the unique look of the highly stylized neo-noir film.

These three scenes will introduce the film's central theme, our hero's heart and major 'showstopping' moments, all through a rare lens of cinematic vision known as Neo-Noir.

"Paul Malone is the only man brave and tactful enough to take down the tyrannous casino owner Mr. Todd. But when he is caught up in a high-stakes romance, a gamble of a friendship and an undercover crime bust, this poker-playing avenger will be given the ultimatum to become an order to save those closest to him."

POKER NOIR - a moving narrative with a dramatic force of style - is a window into the grime and grit of the underworld executed through cinematic NEO-NOIR techniques.

YOUR DONATION enables our team to financially inquire the necessary materials, locations and crew to make this vision a reality.

In the world of POKER NOIR, there are no clocks, no keeping of time. In the film, you are peeking into the gambler's psyche. A mentality where time is no longer an obstacle or the focus. Days, hours, even weeks can go by - but all that matters in POKER NOIR is that your chip stack doubles and that sucker across the table from you gets his cards shoved down his throat for talkin' to you that way.

With an ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK SINGLE "You Got Me Good", a Stunning Shooting Location and a Driven Visionary Team, we here at POKER NOIR are ready to produce the Pilot that will be the start of everything. Get to the table now, while seats are still available!

"Let the games begin!"
-Mr. Todd
