"1960’s Cleveland, Ohio. An era where if you look hard enough, you will see mobsters sitting on a sidewalk bench, puffing cigars. An era where lakes are caught on fire, an era of war both foreign and domestic. Cleveland was a loaded gun, waiting for someone to pull the trigger. This is The Shadowy Slicker."

My name is Zane Sexton and I'm the creator/writer/producer of The Shadowy Slicker. It is truly my passion project and I need your help to bring it to the inky screen. I know that many people think that the noir genre in general is under-representative in today's media. My main goal with The Shadowy Slicker is to provide interesting historical context to the unrest of 1960s America, rejuvenate 40's and 50's film motifs, and tell a vivid character-driven story through the use of the truest form of non-visual story-telling: the audio drama. 

While this audio drama will always be free, through your generous donations, I wish to make The Shadowy Slicker the highest quality possible. As a poor college freshman, I am currently using  Audacity and free stock effects, and will hopefully transition to Adobe Audition if given enough support. While I will not personally financially benefit, I hope to soon offer my voice actors compensation and gain access to more professional equipment. I also wish to hire musicians for an original soundtrack reminiscent of the 1960s! The money will also be used for the upkeep of an upcoming-website. 

No matter how much you can donate to this indie-production of a noir homage, it would be greatly appreciated. Rewards coming soon. 

Sincerely,
The Shadowy Slicker's Personal Errand Boy (Me!)

When I reach 100 patrons, I will hire a jazz musician and cover artists that will enhance the musical elements of The Shadowy Slicker. 

I will also do a Patreon-exclusive interview with every supporter at the $1 level.
