Director Statement

"Just You and Me" was my fourth, and final film project as a student at Keene State College. It was inspired by the Billy Wilder film noir classic "Double Indemnity". This film was produced by my friend and mentor Bob Gunther, who was a child actor in Hollywood. We all learned so much from working with Bob. I learned more about filmmaking and working with actors on this one film than I had in all my previous film projects combined. It was shot shot on Super8 with sync sound, and we used Tri-X black & white film to achieve that high contrast, grainy film noir look. This little film was a wonderful and life changing experience for me. The opportunity to work with Bob, my wonderful cast and crew, and falling in love for the first time with the female lead of "Just You and Me" played by Lovel Richardson.
