This site shares the journey of bringing our feature film HARVEST to life.

In HARVEST, three generations of a family come together one summer, around the eventual passing of the patriarch of the family, a WWII veteran.  Gathered at the family home and in and around their beautiful shoreline town, years of resentment and betrayal within the family surface, and the grandson, a college student, does his part to hold them all together, growing up in the process.

HARVEST is a poignant  and moving story that is ultimately uplifting, with moments of humor anchoring this realistic portrait of a family hanging on to what was, what is, and to each other.  It’s also a film about how we all come of age, in our own ways, both young and old.

The film is written & directed by Marc Meyers, and produced by Ibid Filmworks.  The ensemble cast includes Academy Award nominee Robert LoggiaJack CarpenterArye Gross, Tony Winner Victoria Clark, and Academy Award nominee Barbara Barrie.  With Peter FriedmanAdriana SevanKel O’NeillChristine Evangelista, and Daniel Eric Gold.  Original Music by Grammy Winner Duncan Sheik and David Poe.

Monterey Media is releasing HARVEST theatrically and on home video in 2011!
