Lights... camera... action!; Movie crew sets up shop in the Catskills
Although Mandylor was working in front of the camera non-stop, co-star Bonilla also had a few minutes to chat. “When I first read the script,” he shared, “I was struck by the humor, but caught completely unawares by the twist.” Winking, Bonilla continued, “No, I will not give it away, but it’s safe to say that people will be talking about the surprise ending for years to come. This movie is about many things, including false impressions, the intellectual elite and secrets—deep, dark secrets.”
Post production is currently being done in New York City, and when completed, “Praise and Blame” is slated for competition in various independent film festivals where, “if all goes well,” it will be picked up for distribution and made into a full- length feature film.
