A Women and Minority Owned Company
Manhattan Place Entertainment is a woman and minority owned production services provider and content creation company.
We specialize in producing commercials, promos, branded content, and marketing content for Motion Pictures, Television, and all digital platforms. We work closely with broadcast networks, cable networks, streaming entertainment services, motion picture studios, advertising agencies and many of the world's best known brands.
In terms of name recognition, we've always remained one of the the best kept secrets in our industry. But when you consider all that we've done, the level we've done it at, and the clients we’ve done it for, anyone would be hard pressed to find a company that is more proven, more capable, or more effective than Manhattan Place Entertainment.
Those who have worked with us would likely say the thing that distinguishes us from the rest, our super power if you will, is our ability to make all things go right. Making things go right is a byproduct of the enormous range of experience and expertise we have accumulated over a 40 year period. We are artists, and as such understand creative. We are technicians, and as such have a mastery of the hands-on execution of shoot production and post production. And we are business owners, so we fully understand fiscal responsibility and all financial considerations from the client side. In that regard, we always find ways to elevate concepts and execute them at a world class level, while staying on budget.
We love making things go right and view our clients success as our only success.
Union / Guild Affiliations
We are a signatory for IATSE, DGA, SAG/AFTRA, NABET, and IBEW and handle full scale union productions, but we have always had the freedom and flexibility to handle any non-union productions that come our way as well.
We are one of the very few companies afforded that dual status.
The Marital Union
Jamie Cohen and Steve Cohen are co-owners of Manhattan Place Entertainment and happen to moonlight as husband and wife. Jamie, a woman of Filipino heritage was given a boys name by her mom Isabel prior to her being born (Isabel was certain she would be giving birth to a boy). Mind you there were no tests conducted to confirm Isabel’s
predicted gender for Jamie. Lucky for Steve, Isabel was wrong (definitely not the last time she was wrong), Jamie was most definitely a girl, the name stuck and the rest is history.
Jamie became the majority owner of Manhattan Place Entertainment in 2020. Steve is Manhattan Place Entertainment’s founder and President, but is prouder to be known as Jamie’s husband.
Isabel has had a controlling interest in Steve and Jamie's marriage since 1998.
