Dead Pixel Cinema, started by Derick Crucius and Ryan Regan, will be representing Philadelphia with a short film titled, “Charley Tucson.” The movie will be premiering at the Cannes Short Film Corner, a portion of the festival with over 2,000 filmmakers from 101 countries who will be showcasing their short films.

More from PhillyVoice:

“Charley Tucson” is the first project ofDead Pixel Cinema, a South Philly-based production company Crucius and Regan cofounded last January. The plot is inspired by a childhood story they’d heard over and over again growing up in Dallas.

In brief, the film, which laser-focuses on a man who slowly becomes unhinged as the film progresses, is loosely based on George Banks, a prison guard in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, who infamously shot 13 people to death in 1982 — including his own family. That tale prompted Crucius to research other high-profile murderers, including Jared Lee Loughner, who left six people dead and 12 others injured in the 2011 Tucson, Arizona, shooting that also left Rep. Gabrielle Giffords severely injured.
