New scenes have been added

The reshoot was a success due to the hard work of Matt, Frank, Mark, Thomas, Mike, Garth, and Abby. The added scenes have rounded the run time of the film at 84 mins. We look forward to the response of the new scenes in private screenings for cast and crew.

New Brooklyn - Pick ups

This week we will be re-uniting some of the cast and crew to pick up four new shots.

Based on the last round of screenings there has been demands for more scenes with Matt Cavenaugh and Frank Harts and I couldn't agree more.

Once we have the new scenes they replace the slug on the timeline and we will have the definitive cut.

I am extremely pleased with the last cut of New Brooklyn and I can't wait to bring it to a first time audience.

Please stay tuned for information on a private screening for everyone involved and a few members from the industry.

We have reached the final phase of the film, the big clean up. Today we lock the picture, which means that we can make no additional edits. Now we begin to enhance the soundtrack. This includes ADR (additional dialog recording), foley, wild ambient sound, walla and of course, the score.

We have assembled an incredible team for sound post production. The tracks will be mixed at Beat Street ( by Matt Longoria. Our ADR will be recorded at the famous Sound One ( studios by the amazing David Boulton. The score is being composed by Kyle Bobby Dunn (

We hope to have a final mix by the end of the month, in time for our Locarno and Toronto film festival deadlines.
