Featured Project.

My first pseudo-experimental,
impressionistic piece.
When Sebastian returns home from college, he and his sister Maddie reflect on their childhoods together in the small town of Holland. After an emotionally trying encounter, they are both left to reimagine their lives together and apart.

    This Fleeing Star

I'm Manny.

Here's some handy info about me,
at no additional cost.
My name's Manny Rothman. I'm from PA, .
Throughout my life, I've been making films (and I love watching them, too). I also enjoy graphic design, web design, and computer programming. I'm currently a first-year at Occidental College, majoring in film, minoring in theatre. You can download my resume here.

Starting in 2014, I began to work closely with Elijah Comas. Together, we created Reformat Studios, a group that makes both commercial and personal work. Films below will be notated if they are created under said co-op.

My mantra — "only through confusion can we achieve true lucidity."

This Fleeing Star (2019).


Uh, this one is pretty self-explanatory,
But I have to maintain my formatting consistencies...


Including the embarrassing ones.
Just not the really embarrassing ones.
