NEW YORK, NY – 8 Mar, 2017 – Independent film production and distribution company Digital Magic Entertainment has released a new trailer for its upcoming feature film, Pickings – an indie crime film that offers a healthy dose of Spaghetti Western themes and film noir elements.
The new film tells the story of a short-tempered mobster and his gang of thugs who try to shake down a neighborhood bar. They are soon confronted by the bar’s owner, a mysterious Southern mother with a dangerous past. “This is a family story, a gangster flick, and a Southern revenge film all rolled into one,” said filmmaker Usher Morgan. “We’re mixing some really cool comic book elements with Spaghetti Western elements to produce some interesting results. I can’t wait for folks to see it!”
The teaser trailer, released on March 4 by Digital Magic Entertainment, is accompanied by a musical track recorded by one of the film’s leading actresses, Katie Vincent. The song “Trouble is” will be one of many original songs featured in the uniquely stylized, independent film.
Pickings was written, produced, and directed by Usher Morgan, who self-funded the film after its Indiegogo campaign failed to reach its desired goal. Morgan, the filmmaker behind the award-winning comedy short Prego, entered production in March of 2016 with a $350,000 budget. Principle photography was wrapped in October of 2016, and the film is currently being packaged and sent to film festivals nationwide. Pickings is Usher Morgan’s directorial debut. The film is now being submitted to film festivals and will be released to theaters in the U.S in late 2017.
