The yet-to-be-completed indie drama Redlight Kate, stars Frances Manzo, who also wrote and produced the film. The song “Suffer, Kate” (no, not “Suffocate”), by Los Angeles-based band, Maudlin Strangers will be featured in the film. The supporting cast includes Monique Dupree and Melanie Robel, two ladies who’ve already made names for themselves in the independent film industry. In fact, I had the pleasure of interviewing Melanie for this site last year.
Redlight Kate has a campaign at IndieGogo.com, a site developed to help raise funds for various projects, most of which are in the performing arts. Check it out to see what your support for this film will get you in return. Frances also has a strong dance background and has worked with and choreographed some pretty big names. Check her Now Casting resume and her IMDb listing to see just who they’ve been.
October 2014 Author’s Addendum: Redlight Kate’s funding campaign fell short of meeting its goal and the trailer that was featured here is no longer viewable by the public. While the film project has not been officially cancelled, it has been shelved. If and when it resumes production, this article will again be updated.
