DEAL is the story
of one man’s violent journey to find his place in the ranks of an underground
Vegas group called The Organization. This group is in place to serve the Vegas
elite, making any unique problems and situations disappear... no matter what it
takes. To become part of The Organization is a true test of blind and
emotionless perseverance. And once you’re in, your responsibility and life is
Vegas and the deals of The Organization.
Matt has spent a couple
of years as a runner for an underground Vegas group called, “The Organization.”
This group’s responsibility is to keep the problems of the Vegas elite hidden
and managed. The problems are anything deemed an issue, such as murder, rape,
debt collection, special deliveries and general enforcement.

through out-of-state casinos cheating the properties out of millions, while
policing Vegas’ own properties for cheats like themselves. They manage the
market share and maintain quality control.
Fixers are the
problem solvers. Vegas is an open city, meaning no one organization has
complete control; the fixers play the roles of mediators, enforcers and cleaners.
They can be saviors or silencers.
Runners are the
movers and transporters for The Organization. They are trustworthy, know their
role and make a quick buck for a short run. A Runner’s guideline is simple: Don’t
ask, don’t tell and you won’t disappear.
Matt has spent his
time as a Runner and now he wants something more, to be a Fixer.
In order to move
up in the ranks, Matt is granted an audition with a long-time Fixer. This
Fixer, Cole, will show Matt the ropes. Once Matt proves himself, he will be

The deals are not to be divulged and the players are to remain anonymous. Once
the game begins, each player must finish. The only way out is to be the winner.
The losers will pay for their mistakes.
Matt will do
whatever it takes to earn his position and get his DEAL.
WHO I AM...
My name is Chris
DeFranco. I have written, produced, directed and edited hundreds of
commercials, several long form videos and six short films. I’ve earned awards
and received accolades. And now I want to make a movie.
I am a hard working
professional who loves the craft and have been in the world of commercial and
television production for over 15 years. Along the way, I have enjoyed writing
screenplays, developing ideas and creating interesting characters. It was
recently with the introduction of the DSLR (an affordable camera with high quality
results) revolution, I realized I could take everything I’ve learned over the
years and apply it to making my own film.
I’ve waited long
enough and I’m ready to take it to the next level. I am ready to make a movie,
my movie... “Deal.”
team behind “Deal” is looking to raise $35,000. The funds will be used to pay
for equipment, crew, locations, food and actors. We will also be calling in a
ton of favors from friends, family and a couple of shady characters.
We want everyone
involved with this project to be a part of the entire project. For this reason,
we will be keeping a production log with updates from the set, video journals
and pictures. It will be a complete record of our efforts.
We also would love
to have your vocal and viral support. We want you to spread the word about our
film. Let people know about Deal and how they can be involved. The more the
We need to meet and hopefully exceed our goal
of $35,000 in the time allotted. You can see time is ticking way. If we don’t
reach our goal… well, we are shit out of luck. No money - no movie. And that
sucks. So, please... contribute and spread the word.
