From Ballard High School.

Expert assassin Bruce Viper stalks his newest target Oswaldo Mcgee on a late rainy night in a diner. In this noir homage short, Oswaldo aims to get his takeout before Viper can take him out.

We wanted to do a noir homage with a modern comedy sensibility. Its a throwback with as much fun production and costume design as we could manage.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
