Watch: First Trailer for Kickstarter-Funded Film 'Down and Dangerous'
A smuggler bleeds like anyone else. He just gets more chances to prove it. I think what they prove here is how far you can go with a little bit of money. Our friends at The Film Stage have tipped us to a trailer for Down and Dangerous, directed by Zak Forsman and The Sabi Company, a cocaine smuggling drama starring John T. Woods (Heart of Now, S-VHS). Forsman is well known in the crowdfunding world for his many projects, but this is his latest, an impressively well-made microbudget crime thriller called Down and Dangerous that looks like it belongs at major film festivals. Give it a shot, you'll see it actually looks great.
Watch the first official trailer for Zak Forsman's Down and Dangerous, found via The Film Stage:
Always one step ahead of the Feds, Paul Boxer (Woods) is the most inventive and principled smuggler in the trade, and has never needed to carry a gun. When violent mid-level traffickers coerce him into designing a foolproof plan to bring several kilos of cocaine across the México border, he maneuvers to rid himself of their hold over him once and for all. But when a sharp-witted woman from his past enlists his help to escape this rival outfit, Paul must confront the man that is hunting him down, and choose between his livelihood as a smuggler and his integrity as a man. The film was successfully funded for about $40,000 on Kickstarter last year. It will be premiering at the upcoming Phoenix Film Festival. For more info, visit their Facebook.

Looks amazing for a 40k film.

Well cut together, not sure it'll be a great film, but I suppose you couldn't get a sandwich on most movies for $40 grand.

Hollywood action and drama without the bloat and overspending. Might be good for a look if it comes my way.

I'm impressed. But they should've figured out a different hashtag other than #DADmovie...

hey situasian, director of the movie here. wanted to fill you in on why we're going with the hashtag #DADmovie. It's not as strange as it may seem, but you learn that my dad was a cocaine smuggler and it was his adventures that served as the creative spark behind this movie. It's no coincidence then that the acronym for Down And Dangerous is D.A.D.
