It is our honor to share with you scenes from the opening of our noir motion picture, Trouble Is My Business.  Our sincere thanks to everyone who has helped make this possible.

We invite you into the world of 1947 noir in Los Angeles.  Everything should be sunny, but the smog creates a fog, a haze that permeates not just the lungs, but people’s psyches. This is a world that looks great on the outside: classy cars and snappy dressers, but under the tailored facades and shiny demeanors, it is a place of intense mood and deep shadows, a place where people’s true character may be as well hidden as the stoney face of a gambler holding a royal flush.  Moral lines are anything but black and white.  Add to this betrayal, passion, ambition, money and sex, and detective Roland Drake has his work cut out.  But then, trouble is his business…..

  7. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, wonderful blog!
