Drawing Dead is a documentary film about the highs and lows of online poker from two very different perspectives: a professional poker player worth millions, and a gambling addict.
Drawing Dead is Mike Weeks' first attempt at filmmaking. A full time Product Manager at the North American HQ of Adidas in Portland, Oregon, this 'side project' allowed Mike to dig deeper into a world he was already very familiar with, the world of online poker. His own experiences with big wins, and painful losses, were the inspiration for Drawing Dead.
Michael Korpi Jr, one of the two focal subjects of the film, is from and currently lives in Shoreline, WA.
