Inside the Speakeasy Dollhouse

Here's a Kickstarter update about our next film, Inside the Speakeasy Dollhouse!


We were in the edit suite all day and want you to know that we entered an exciting new phase of this project!  First off, the new title for our documentary is: Inside the Speakeasy Dollhouse and we are almost done with a rough cut! That means we have a beginning, middle and end...and somehow it all make sense.

Next, we start the process of reviewing, making a few changes, and then the finishing touches. We will keep you updated on our progress.

Inside the Speakeasy Dollhouse shaped up beautifully thanks to the additional camera work of Damian Kolodity and the amazing photography of Margee Challa.

Part of the editing process means that we watch the same footage over and over again. And no matter how often we watch the footage from the Speakeasy Dollhouse play, we are constantly impressed by the performances of the "Dolls", especially actors Russell Farhang (as Frank Spano) and Silent James (as John Guerrieri). But don't take our word for it, check out their performances for yourself. 

We're thinking back to almost a year ago when we met Cynthia von Buhler and started this Kickstarter campaign. Not only do we feel so fortunate to have stepped into Cynthia's Speakeasy Dollhouse world, but we are so grateful to the many people who have supported us. We truly appreciate it.

Meanwhile, if you haven't already, check out the New York Times article on Cynthia! If you want more dolls and murder, follow our facebook page. We update quite often. In fact, we just updated about some mysterious Speakeasy doll doors springing up all over NYC.
And if you haven't yet watched Of Dolls & Murder,  go to our website, Netflix streaming, iTunes, or Amazon.

Yours in Dolls, Murder & Speakeasies,
Filmmakers Susan Marks & John Kurtis Dehn
