Godbout Entertainment Announces THE TRADE

Writer/Director Gerald J. Godbout III has an extensive background in music, which includes being a DJ and ultimately the head of his own music label. That all changed within the better part of the past decade when Godbout III decided to further his to pursuit in filmmaking, a jouney that has already earned his film group, Godbout Entertainment, the credits of being an award-winning filmmaking company.

Today, Godbout III and the cast and crew, along with starring actor, independent filmmaker and producer Dennis Jusino are leading the way with a newly unveiled press release for a self-financed short film they are now working on called The Trade, gritty, urban action crime drama set on the streets of Miami about two cousins whose life-long careers as criminals bring them way in over their heads when a dirty cop introduces them to the criminal underworld of prostitution and sex trafficking.

Actress Brittney Santos also stars with Jimmy Dempster who will also be seen as the main villain in filmmaker Danny Vega's year-end feature release, A Dance With The Devil. Actors Anthony Belevtsov, Fran Rafferty, Michael Opal and Rafael Lugo round out the cast, with Genesis Action Stunts designing the action sequences to host its own fair share of hand to hand and weaponized fight scenes, as well as gun battles and a brutal climatic final brawling scene between the two lead characters.

Filming is set to begin in late August/early September for a six week shoot, with the hopeful prospects of a feature-length production to come. Check out the press release below, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below, or on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.
