Las Vegas’ full-service film development and production company, oogoog productions, will debut the highly anticipated anthology film Dealer at the opening night of the Las Vegas Film Festival. Dealer is a quirky Las Vegas-based cinematic collaboration comprised of five directors that feature four individual segments in one film.
The 100-minute comedic-action production will debut June 7th and kicking off the Las Vegas Film Festival at Inspire Theater. Shot and filmed solely in the Las Vegas-area by UNLV alumni of filmmakers, the team of producers and directors came together to create an idiosyncratic movie montage centered around a blackjack dealer who is forced into becoming a drug dealer for a day with disastrous results.
“I am elated to set the tone of the Las Vegas Film Festival with the movie Dealer and have the world premiere strike and screening in Vegas, where the film was produced, shot and directed,” said oogoog productions’ Chuck Akin. “There has been interest from largely-attended festivals in other cities, but we felt it integral to ensure that oogoog save the first screening of Dealer for where the film was born. It was imperative that we repay some of the sweat equity by local filmmakers, cast and crew and reward them by allowing it to debut on the first screen in their own town.”
Seats to the highly-anticipated screening will be first-come, first-served basis to Las Vegas Film Festival ticket holders. For more information on Dealer, visit
