The entire team at Ridder Films is so incredibly grateful that our upcoming feature film, THE MANOR, has been enthusiastically received and will start filming in a few weeks.
This particular movie will follow some American filmmakers -- played by Kim Spearman, Sarah Alexandra Marks, Rui Shang, and Louis James – who are scouting a location in the English countryside, when they suddenly find themselves trapped in a sort of time loop, filled with unexpected twists, and turns.

If you like what you see, this is your last chance to join the team. And in exchange for your contribution, you can have your name/likeness used in the film, take a live, in-person tour of the manor (COVID protocols permitting), grab a speaking role in the film, get your product placed in the body of the movie, score a special acknowledgement in the end credits (and on IMDb) ... and much more!
As anyone in the industry can tell you, film fundraising is no fun, and continues to pose a considerable challenge to creatives across the globe. But I'm pleased to report that, as of this writing, THE MANOR is now 88% FUNDED -- with over $30,000 pledged.
Even though our goal of $34,000 is certainly within reach, exceeding that objective will improve the quality of the final result. (For example, an infusion of additional cash would allow the team to sign a celebrity -- which, of course, would greatly enhance the production value and its international appeal.)
While good manners are said to be a window to civility ... Blake Ridder’s THE MANOR ... will very likely defenestrate you!
In this clip, Louis James, who plays a starring role in the film, announces the extension of the crowdfunding campaign until the end of July. (Let's help buy him a new shirt!)
