Moras Productions is at it again by producing Film Noir short The White Orchid

Producer/Actor/Writer Omar Mora joins forces once again with Indie Director Michael May

 

Los Angeles, Ca – Producer, actor, and writer Omar Mora and indie director Michael May have joined forces once again to tackle their newest project; a short film entitled The White Orchid. The White Orchid follows the story of a detective investigating a series of murders, a search that leads the detective to face the killer and uncover the truth. Michael May will direct the short, which will be infused with stylistic elements of Film Noir.

“I’m excited about our short film. The vison that Michael has for the movie will be different from anything I have done in the past as both a writer and an actor. I love where the story is going as a result of May’s suggestion for rewrites to the script. Initially the storyline was too raw, but is now becoming a piece of art. I am driven and excited about the outcome of our collaboration”. Mora said in reference to their second collaboration.

The filmmaking duo has previously worked together in the successful feature film 30 Days with My Brother, which had limited theatrical release in the US and Puerto Rico last year and is available now on Video On Demand.

The cast for The White Orchid will be announced soon. The short will begin production in February 2017.
