Meet @ariveach, Co-Producer, Writer, and Actor for “Remember/Tomorrow.” Below are some of his thoughts on creating this film...
"In the fall of 2018, I was in the midst of processing two very significant events in my life…it was now over a year and a half since my dad died, and my partner and I had just moved into our first apartment together. This dichotomy, grieving over my dad’s death while also celebrating my life with my partner, inspired me to begin writing a screenplay that would become “Remember/Tomorrow.” After three months of writing, I completed the first draft and turned to one of my closest collaborators and friends, Ryan Shuler, to create the film with me...
The process of shooting was very interesting, as I now had to find the ever-elusive balance between my roles as a producer and as an actor. Ryan and I, along with Nathan Krauss, our amazing DP, had a wonderful back-and-forth relationship on set where we would develop one another’s ideas for how a shot could look and how a scene could play out
However, it was also very important for me to stay focused as an actor...to forget about the logistics of production and drop into the scene before the camera started rolling. I truly could not have asked for a better scene partner to accompany me than Marielle Renee Rousseau. She supported me in ways that no other actor has ever done before, grounding me when I became anxious and reminding me to stay with her, with the story, with our characters, moment to moment. After two days of shooting in March and another three days in May, “Remember/Tomorrow” was successfully wrapped.
Now, as we are in the midst of post-production, there is still much more work to be done…but I could not be more excited to shape the film into its final product, and I am very proud of the work we have accomplished so far. If you are reading this, from the bottom of my heart, I full-heartedly thank you. Thank you for supporting this film, this story, and for being a part of our journey.”
