Gumshoes is a story that takes a twist on the film noir genre. Starts with a mysterious detective and a classy dame in a bar but it does not end the way you think it would. Press play on the trailer above to catch a teasing glimpse of it.
During an unspecified period of existence, John Fracas, a middle-aged, disheartened detective, discusses the specifics of a crime scene, also known as an "orchestration." He lets loose his emotional frustrations and struggles to a fellow bar patron who cares to listen.
It was an awesome (and lightning fast) two-day shoot followed by some visual effects for the climax. I worked under Director of Photography Martin Buzora who is a wonderful cinematographer with an equally wonderful smile.
It's screening at the Canadian Film Fest on March 22nd. If you have a chance to go, please attend the screening and drop me a message letting me know you saw it. I'd like to hear what you thought about this stylish little baby.
