Americons tells the story of a broken down collegiate football star who gets a shot at real-estate stardom during the eleventh hour of LA's nihilistic sub-prime mortgage boom. Directed by Theo Avgerinos, we have a clip from this true story drama which was written by and stars Beau Martin Williams and Matt Funke and produced by Michael Masini, who also appears in the movie.
The year is 2007 and twenty percent of the state of California is employed in real estate. Mortgage banks are on a hiring frenzy when hotshot Mortgage Broker Devin Weiss lures the financially burdened Jason Kelley into this world of financing other people's dreams. He convinces Jason that to win in this business cheaters do prosper and everyone is doing it from the Appraisers to the Bond Traders. Jason throws his moral compass to the wind and spins out of control all the way to the Mortgage Brokers convention in Las Vegas where he learns his new world is booming on a foundation of quicksand. The quagmire of ruin escalates into the indeterminate ending of both the film and the continuing saga of today's global economy.
Check out our exclusive sneak peek, along with the trailer, before the film hits select theaters this weekend. Sometimes you need an edge to get the next level. Based on his own experiences, Beau Martin Williams is about to show you were that edge is without going completely over it:
