Soulmates Movie Director's Blog!

Hi everyone out there who cares about having a relationship - with two souls inextricably entwined, in heart and soul! We just uploaded a new scene on the website (

At Halloween, where the veil between the earth and the cosmic realm is very thin, Eddie has just gotten a vision of his true self. At a graveyard, where his wife Sandy works, he attempts to break the news to her. She doesn't like anything he says and they have a passionate, intense fight of two people committed and in love.

The production for this scene was wild: the steadicam did not arrive till the night before, and Ben the DP, was studying the directions on the way to the location, which had me just e little bit unsettled. He did a brilliant job winding in and out of a complex maze of tombstones. One glitch happened - while moving backwards as the actors were approaching him, he tripped on a small tombstone - the camera went flying in the air, and he fell down. This might have been the end of our shoot that day and for days to come, if he hadn't some how miraculously caught the camera in midair and saved it form crashing to the ground. We continued the shoot for the whole day, trying hard to match shots with the sun moving across the sky and the tombstones throughout the day. This turned out to be one of our most dramatic and visually striking scenes of the movie.

Come visit our site!! and come to the Washington, DC premiere, Feb. 21, 8:00pm at the Avalon Theater!

Your Soulmates Director, Joan Sugerman
