Gambling is one solution to paying bills in tough times, but it doesn't always produce desired results.
This short film Lucky Shot takes us through the highs and lows of gambling not just with a
basketball game but with one's own life. Many times gambling just deals with faking people out, or even
calling someone's bluff, which can turn the tables on someone who gambles with a gun. This film, featured
in Access Sacramento's Place Called Sacramento 2011 showcase, presents a look at gambling from
multiple angles including basketball and armed robbery. Sometimes gambling can even unite two unlike
Another undertone of the film contrasts the difference between good luck and bad luck. In this film
Rick has more luck gambling with his life over six bucks than betting on basketball for the same amount.
Many times momentum drives outcomes, which can also lead to fakeouts. The film stars Producer Raghni Reddy and Jeffrey C. Vanacore.
Reddy also wrote and directed the film while Vanacore did the editing. Reddy also created the suspenseful
soundtrack movie. The rest of the crew included Directors of Photography Aaron Lord and Dylan Nelson.
Overall, it's a well-produced film showing that small projects can deliver big messsages.
