November/December 2007 6-week class project announced!

The Edit Center is pleased to announce that the class project for the upcoming November/December 2007 six-week course will be The Missing Person, directed by Noah Buscel (Bringing Rain, Neal Cassady).  The Missing Person stars Michael Shannon (World Trade Center), Frank Wood ("Flight of the Conchords," winner of the 1999 Tony Award for Best Actor), and Amy Ryan (Capote, "The Wire," 2000 & 2005 Tony nominee for Best Actress).  The film is about a private investigator hired by a grieving widow to find her missing husband who was working at the World Trade Center on September 11th but whose remains were never found.  The case follows Rosow on a manhunt that puts him in the path of corrupt bureaucrats, 9/11 trauma victims, lost children, and his own memories of that terrible day.  The film is produced by Jesse Scolaro and Allen Bain of The 7th Floor (who produced Gardener of Eden with Leonardo DiCaprio and the Sundance award-winner Manito).  Edit Center alum Mollie Goldstein (Palindromes, "Stella") will be editing the film and, with Noah, working closely with the November/December students.
