BLANK CITY
Director: Celine Danhier Producers: Aviva Wishnow, Vanessa Roworth Executive Producers: Josh Braun, Dan Braun, Andrew Karsch, Fisher Stevens Editor: Vanessa Roworth World Premiere: Berlinale (Panorama) US Distributor: Kino Lorber / Insurgent Featuring: Jim Jarmusch, Debbie Harry, Steve Buscemi, John Lurie, Fab 5 Freddy, Thurston Moore Documentary BLANK CITY tells the long-overdue tale of a disparate crew of renegade filmmakers who emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history. In the late 1970's and mid 80's, when the city was still a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs, these directors crafted daring works that would go on to profoundly influence the development of independent film as we know it today. The soundtrack includes: Patti Smith, The Contortions, The Bush Tetras, Sonic Youth and more.

ABOUT

WEBSITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Bunny Lake Films is an award-winning, female-founded creative production company with an equal focus on independent film & television and branded content.

Our feature-length films have premiered at Sundance, Berlin, Toronto, Tribeca and SXSW — with powerful stories brought to life through documentaries such as the Emmy-winning MEDORA, THE PUNK SINGER, and BLANK CITY.

We've brought our free thinking, creative spirit, and story-telling skills to the production of television commercials and short-form branded content for globally recognized brands including Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, and MAC Cosmetics, and have created digital content for Vogue, Rolling Stone, and Harper’s Bazaar, among others.

We care about building a better world. Our PSAs have helped get the word out through social media platforms and on television for Swing Left, Animals Asia and New York State’s Wear-A-Mask campaign.

We give our highly personalized attention to projects across all media platforms, taking projects from inception to delivery as well as offering more targeted individual services and consultation.

What we do:
  • Pre-Production & Production services: all standard video and photo production services including location scouting, casting, filming, and media management.
  • Post-production Services for Video & Photo: editing, sound mixing, color correction, and retouching.
  • Specialized Services: original music composition, motion graphics, animation, and other visual effects.
  • Creative Services: campaign concepts, briefs, script writing, and pre-edit videos
  • Behind-the-Scenes (BTS) Video/Photo Services

A note on production during the Covid-19 pandemic:
We currently have the capacity to successfully execute streamlined productions while following CDC guidelines, using minimal crew while our producers and post production team work remotely from their home studios.

What's the story behind our name? Bunny Lake is the title character in Otto Preminger’s 1965 thriller “Bunny Lake Is Missing.” We recommend streaming it.

Now that we’ve introduced ourselves, we’d love to know about you and your work. Reach out at any time. We look forward to meeting you.
