Manhattanites Update

- Photo by Sue Coflin, who also appears in the film

I have received a number of inquiries about when my film, Manhattanites, will be released so I wanted to provide an update here. For those who don't know, my partner and I, who formed Loger Inc a few years back, were the Executive Producers of the film. I wrote the script with my long-time friend, Gregori J. Martin, who directed and starred in the movie. The film stars several familiar faces to soap fans including Ilene Kristen, Forbes March, Aiden Turner, David Fumero and Jill Larson.

We held a very successful two night industry screening in late May with the cast (see photo), crew, potential distributors and a few select guests from press.

Over the past few weeks we have been working on final edits and sound design. We are shaving a few minutes off the film and perfecting the sound but it will not be radically different than the version we screened, just a cleaner version. That process should be completed by the end of June at which time we will begin a big push with distribution companies.

The next steps could play out in a number of ways. The film could get picked up right away and you'll see it on DVD in the not too distant future. We may also visit some select film festivals to stir up interest. Either way, the process has been a fun ride so far and I'm sure it will continue to be.
