Follows two con artists who bite off more than they can chew.
Double Cross (2015) Online
Cocky young con-artists, Jenn and George have been making all the right moves, breaking the law, and having fun doing it. But one night after making suspiciously light work of a heavy score, they find themselves crossing the line into dangerous territory... in more ways than one... DOUBLE CROSS is a five minute crime caper about two con artists who bite off more than they can chew.
The filmmakers cite Steven Soderbergh's 'Out of Sight' as a big inspiration for the energy and tone of the movie.
The entire movie was shot in one night.
The VFX team took inspiration from 'Luther', 'True Detective' & 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' when creating the opening title sequence.
The director, Sam Bradford, actually voices the only other role within the movie as the night porter. The recording was then tweaked to make his voice almost unrecognisable.
The director's credit as the voice of the night porter was marked under an alias for fun during the end credits. 'Danny Ryan' is the combination of the two first names of the lead characters from 'Oceans Eleven' played by George Clooney & Brad Pitt.
DOP, Phil Thomas, studied a lot of scenes composed in the series 'House of Cards' in his prep work towards shooting 'Double Cross'.
During breaks on set while the crew re-positioned for the next take, music tracks were played to continue evoking the mood of 'Double Cross'. These tracks included scores from 'House of Cards', 'Ocean's Eleven', 'Confidence', 'The Italian Job' and 'Limitless'.
The movie was filmed on a two camera setup of RED Dragon Cinema Cameras.
During pre-production, shooting and post - _Double Cross (2015)_ producer, writer and actress, Kyla Frye, had to nickname Sam Benjamin and Sam Bradford 'Benj' & 'Brad' to stop confusion when addressing each of them.
