On November 1st, 2014 American Montage, Inc. celebrated it's 30th year as a New York City based motion picture production and post-production company.Fortunately,  Eric Marciano the founder and principal of American Montage has been so busy on a plethora of projects he couldn't even herald in this significant anniversary on November 1st. He is beginning to remedy that right now.

To survive and thrive through the technological changes, economic ups and downs and all of the changes that come with life, the city and the world has been remarkable.

The past few years have been particulary interesting too. Working on a series of great projects with acclaimed theater and film director Lee Breuer as producer, camera and editor including  the theater piece "Shalom Shanghai" in in Shanghai, China, the documentary "The Book of Clarence" the story of Clarence Fountain the retired leader of the Blind Boys of Alabama and the remarkable theater extravaganza being turned into a film, "La Divina Caricatura".

Working for PBS as a Senior Editor for WGBY/WGBH in Massachusetts from November 2013 to November 2014.

Producing a video Wellness series with Friends Indeed and the exceptional Scott Berliner to be launched in March 2015.

Filming and editing the tremendous flameco company Noche Flamenca and Soledad Barrio

Editing a pilot called "Ganja Earth"on the exploding cannabis business out West for one of our original clients the sensational Brent Owens.

Of course we continue to work in our films on "Hair" composer Galt MacDermott and the theater company, "The Amoralist"

To mark our 30th as 2015 unrolls we be posting films and videos on our web site  from our 30 year history. The truth of running any business over a long period of time is  - you can't do it alone. I want to thank the many friends, clients colleagues, funders and family that helped and continue to make American Montage what it is.

THANK YOU ALL!
