The first teaser trailer for Pickings portrays the dark story of a mysterious bar owner, and how she will stop at nothing to protect her family.
About the Film: Jo Lee-Haywood (Elyse Price), a single mother and neighborhood bar owner has spent years trying to escape her violent past. But when a local mobster and his gang of thugs come knocking on her door, Jo is forced to embrace her inner demons and confront her deadly history in order to protect her family and her property. Still waters run deep in this stylistic, neo-noir crime saga.
The film stars Elyse Price, Joel Bernard, Katie Vincent, Emil Ferzola and Joe Trombino and was written, directed and produced by Usher Morgan.
The teaser trailer features an original musical track created by one of the film's leading actresses, Katie Vincent. The song "Trouble is" will be one of many original songs featured in this uniquely stylized, independent film. Pickings entered production in March 2016, with a budget of $350,000, and was self-funded by filmmaker Usher Morgan, who previously directed the award-winning short comedy film, Prego (also featuring Katie Vincent). Pickings is Morgan's first feature film. This neo-noir crime film will be released to theaters in 2018.
