Movie to Document Online Poker Boom

By Scott Carlson, Rakeback.com Staff Writer

Boom Online Poker DocumentaryJay Rosenkrantz announced on his blog Monday that he is teaming up with CardRunners founding member Taylor Caby to make a feature length documentary about the online poker boom. The working title is Boom: The Incredible True Story of Online Poker. Krantz and Caby are teaming up with filmmaker Ryan Firpo who also made the From Busto to Robusto series.

Krantz indicated their goal is “to use key events to chronicle the evolution of online poker and examine its impact on the lives of a handful of online poker players from around the world. We’ll be exploring the nuances of the subculture, from Two Plus Two to poker training sites, along with the psychological implications of the online poker lifestyle and the themes that have made poker so popular throughout time”.

Krantz indicated that they are in the fund-raising phase of the project. He indicated that all of the funds will come from the high stakes poker community. They are currently looking for suggestions for character choices for the documentary. They expect to enter pre-production soon.

If this documentary turns out to only be half as good as the From Busto to Robusto series, they will have a great product. If you missed the Busto series, check out the teaser:
