Update on "3 Backyards"


Rocco Caruso, producer of Kate Erbe's upcoming film "3 Backyards" tells us that they are nearing completion of the film -- "These indie films take forever!" Caruso says "The film should be completed by end of year/early January at which point we'll start shopping it around in search of a distributor."

Kathryn Erbe serves as narrator in "The Vanishing City" (2009)

Executive Producer: Erika Hampson
synopsis: Like many cities across America, New York has been changing rapidly. But as recently as 1990 it still had many old-fashioned aspects. Bakeries, butcher shops, family-owned grocery stores, bars and coffee shops were places where neighbors gathered and gave each other a sense of community. Then, in the mid-nineties, with the influx of cash and low-interest loans, developers seized on the opportunity to invest in the city. Dangerous neighborhoods that had been made "hip" by artists living there now attracted the working wealthy and big investors. High-rise luxury buildings and chain stores started replacing the smaller residences and neighborhood shops that were the "glue" of the community. Through a mix of archival footage, current photographs and film, interviews with long-time residents and merchants, footage of community board hearings, and discussions with investors, politicians and real estate developers, we explore the effects of development on various neighborhoods of New York City.
