Staying in Boston was filmed entirely on location and with the generous support of local businesses including the Pour House on Boylston Street and Shake the Tree in the North End, and features stunning views of the rustic shorelines of Gloucester and of course the unmistakable Boston skyline. “We really approached this project with an attitude of ‘Let’s make that happen!’” says Director and Producer, Vincent C. Morreale. “Whether it was filming in a lavish office suite in the heart of the financial district; running around the Orange Line in a giant shrimp costume; finding a roof deck with that perfect view of the skyline; or helping out on a lobster boat for a day, we didn’t want to limit ourselves or the scope of the project. Working without big studio budgets can be daunting, but it shouldn’t limit your creativity or sense of adventure.”
Independent film was a new adventure for writer Soolman, a local playwright. “It’s been such an amazing experience being so involved from start to finish,” said Soolman. “With my plays, I would just submit them and have no input as to how they were executed. With Staying in Boston, I’ve worked with Vin on all aspects of the production. It’s been a true team effort and I’ve learned a lot.”
Currently in post-production, the premiere of Staying in Boston is scheduled for summer 2014.
