Gimme the Loot Trailer

"Do what you gotta do to make that shit happen!" We are exclusively debuting the first SXSW promo teaser trailer for Adam Leon's Gimme the Loot, a new narrative feature premiering at the SXSW Film Festival next month. The film stars newcomers Tashiana Washington, Ty Hickson, Meeko, Zoe Lescaze, Sam Soghor and is about two determined Bronx teens who "must hustle, steal, and scheme" and try their hardest to become the "biggest writers in the City." This looks quite impressive, I highly suggest seeing it if you're at SXSW in March. It looks like Leon has captured New York exquisitely. Check out the first teaser trailer here!

Watch the first SXSW teaser trailer for Adam Leon's Gimme the Loot, debuted on FirstShowing:

When Malcolm and Sofia’s latest graffiti masterpiece is buffed by a rival gang, the two determined Bronx teens must hustle, steal, and scheme to get spectacular revenge and become the biggest writers in the City.

Gimme the Loot is written and directed by New York filmmaker Adam Leon, making his feature debut after the short Killer previously. This is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival down in Austin next month in the Narrative Feature Competition category. This was filmed in and around Brooklyn and New York City.

    one of the few black movies that doesn't involve tyler perry. "one giant leap for mankind"
    • Why is it a 'black' movie? Because it features black people as the lead? So most films are 'white' movies? Graffiti writers today are mainly 'white' and middle class by most standards.
