It’s been a long time in production but it’s starting to look as though BOOM the poker documentary will be ready for release in the next few months.
According to a recent blog post by Jay Rosenkrantz (the film's co-creator), their current South by Southwest film festival edit is "not bad at all (in fact I think if we released it many people would still enjoy it), but Ryan is right when he says it's just not good enough ".The former high stakes player has been working on the cinematic project for a number of months and is now "(literally) living in the documentary editing room" in order to drive the film closer to completion.A number of setbacks and shifts in the industry have meant the film has taken much longer than anticipated, but fortunately for the creators there still seems to be a fair amount of buzz about it.“We knew that Black Friday was the crux of the plot… So once we made the decision to fully commit to telling their story through the shifting context of the online poker boom (rather than placing the emphasis on the details of the rise and fall of the industry), and after a lot of deep thinking, discussion, and index carding of scenes, we found the heart of our story again.”While there has been no official release date for the film it does now seem that the end is insight for one of poker’s most ambitious video offerings.For more info, read Jay’s full blog post.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
