Slick: A modern heist short film with a twist

First four minutes of Slick, one our first ever independent short films shot in Riverside, California. 

After successful heist on the mob, 5 robbers meet at their rendezvous location. One of them suddenly doubles over dead. Suspecting a rat in their midst with the arrival of SWAT teams via helicopters imminent, accusations fly and conflicting personalities clash in a heated standoff that could very well spell life and death for all involved.

Special thanks to California Aviation Services for the helicopters and Diffenbaugh for the location.
