Supernatural Being, Agent Reckless, is in charge of distributing bad luck among humans, and must force The Mob into self-destruction
"The Universe Began With A Big Bang, And We Are All The Ashes..." - Reckless
The King of Hearts is a short film directed by Antonio Jimenez and produced by Dynamic Films, LLC.
The Film is about a supernatural being, Agent Reckless, who's in charge of distributing bad luck amongst humans and must now force The Mob into the path of self-destruction.
"You Cannot Control, You Can Only Manipulate." - Murphy
The film is about the properties of luck and chance, not only in our daily lives, but in reality as a whole. Agent Reckless represents a less powerful version of God; while over seeing the destruction of a mob known as "The Zodiacs," Reckless' sympathy for humanity makes it difficult to execute his mission, and his victims.
"It Is Foolproof (beat) But Then Again, Nothing Is." - Werner
It is a poetic film with many characters and many motivations, all leading to powerful consequences.
Reckless - Oversees bad luck.
Cancer - Hitman, and heir to the throne of "The Zodiacs."
Hope - Daughter of Cancer, plans to murder her father on her birthday.
Aries - Godfather of "The Zodiacs."
Leo - Son of Aries, and rightful heir to "The Zodiacs."
Werner - Hope's lover, and inventor of the "foolproof" bomb.
The film is an homage to directors Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino, combined with the influence of several other filmmakers, The King of Hearts will be a "Supernatural Western."

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
The budget for the King of Hearts is approximately $12,000. With that money, we will be able to make the first short film of its kind, in the Philadelphia area, topped off with a bang!! Our pyrotechnician consultant Patrick White, is currently working with us to plan out this special effect. View his IMDB page here (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2173919/ )
Each member of this production is working hard to fulfill their dream of making it in movie industry. While there are many other theories on how we can achieve our goals, we have decided "go big, or go home". We believe that, as students and low-budget filmmakers, this project will give us what we need to earn our spot in Hollywood.
We will update our progress to everyone as we move forward, so PLEASE follow us, like us, and check out our website http://www.agentreckless.com
