Watch The New Teaser Trailer For "Pickings" - In Theaters March 2, 2018



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Digital Magic Entertainment announces the release of a thrilling new trailer for its upcoming neo-noir indie crime film, "Pickings".
Shortly after completing his award-winning short film, Prego; writer, director, and producer Usher Morgan teamed up with cinematographer Louis Obioha and actors Elyse Price, Katie Vincent, and Joel Bernard to bring to life an exciting new feature film, entitled "Pickings."

This neo-noir meets Spaghetti Western crime film pushes the boundaries of style and takes the viewers on a thrilling ride into the story of Jo Lee Haywood - a single mother and neighborhood bar owner who 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 property. Still waters run deep in this stylistic, neo-noir crime saga.

Principle photography began in March of 2016 under a shooting budget of $350,000. The film was shot in Yonkers, New York City, Southampton Village, and Staten Island for a total of 35 days, and post production continued until November of 2017. The film stars Elyse Price, Joel Bernard, Katie Vincent, Emil Ferzola and Joe Trombino and was written, directed and produced by Usher Morgan.

"This is a family story, a gangster flick and a southern revenge film all rolled into one," said 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 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. You can watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEakc1u5Ah4

After receiving 10 nominations at the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival in December, Pickings went on to win "Best Feature Director" (Usher Morgan), "Best Cinematography" (Louis Obioha), and "Best Feature Actress" (Elyse Price).

Pickings is scheduled to be released to select theaters on March 2nd, 2018.
