But this film was very different than the previous.
It’s a love story at its core.
Two strangers meet in Los Angeles the night Donald Trump was elected and they’re forced to examine whether each of them is living life to the fullest. It’s relatable, it’s a night we all remember, it’s sexy – but that’s not why it’s different. If you’re a film buff, you’ll be excited to know, it’s a one take film – meaning it was shot in one night without any cuts. Meagan and Omari had to memorize 70 pages of a script and perform honest and entertaining ad libs as well.
But that is also not what makes this film different.
Qasim wrote this film with the love of his life, writer and actress Samantha Tanner. Together they put their own emotions, tensions, and hope on the page and screen.
We asked them to give us the scoop on what it was like to work together on this intimate film and what they’ve shared below is a love letter to one another and to their audience.
