Short Summary

 The Death of Gary Goldwater came from a world that I (Joel F. Gardiner) created over two years ago and have been struggling to make ever since. It's a dark comedy based on two characters that find themselves falling heavily into debt with a local loan shark and in order to settle it they are charged with the task of taking out one of his "associates". Believing that it can't be much more difficult then how it's made out to be in the movies, they set out to take care of their problem. However, they soon realize that it's pretty damn hard, not only disposing of a body, but disposing of the right body, as they begin to pile up around them.

 Now originally "The Death of Gary Goldwater" was written as a full length feature titled "Hitmen". However, after re-working it and creating what is essentially a teaser for a story much deeper I realized that there is so much more to this universe that can be explored. So the idea is to use "The Death of Gary Goldwater" and create that universe by having it be the first of many in the series.

 Directed by Clinton Jones Starring Olan Rogers and myself Joel F. Gardiner
