An offbeat look at four Crescent City layabouts, who dream big in a 'small change' world of cards, women and endless cups of coffee. Their passionate blundering, like their rants, can be at once funny, poignant, ridiculous and heartbreaking. Ditch, their self appointed king, is an irascible son-of-a-bitch with a Napoleon complex, and his pals love him for it. Until one day he pushes the self-tenured Professor too far. A game of threats, posturing and sexual ploys lead them down a dark but comic road in this exploration of what it is to be a man today. Filmed in black and white, this richly textured character study could be the bastard child of Woody Allen and Tom Waits, brought to life by an ensemble of real-life character actors who have known each other and worked together for over twenty- five years.

Eddie Jemison and Sean Richardson
Eddie Jemison was born in New Orleans and acted in his first film, Schizopolis, opposite Steven Soderbergh. Since then he's acted in Oceans Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen, the Sundance favorite: Waitress, The Punisher, Bruce Almighty, Bob Funk, Nancy Drew and as a regular on HBO's Hung. Eddie stars in the recently selected Coffee, Kill Boss premiering at The Austin Film Festival. King of Herrings is his first directing effort and a kind of homecoming.
Sean Richardson started working in the film industry while studying at Louisiana State University, moving up the ranks from a grip all the way to camera operator. His diverse experience as producer, writer, director, cinematographer, and editor for a variety of genres has contributed to his unique improvisational filmmaking style. WIth minimal to no crew and a few lights, Sean is able to get faster setups and more takes that help capture organic moments essential to telling a great story.
