This short film project is based on the answers of 21 people who answered anonymously about a regret that they would like to change. The process of making this film depended upon the improvisation of 22 of Northeast Ohio’s best actors; the 21 actors you see above were assigned an anonymous response and invited to imagine a character who would try to undo this thing.
Interviews were filmed over two days during the summer of 2016 and the performances given by these actors were so surprising and electric that our crew and production team found themselves regularly bursting into laughter, feeling an ache of sadness and even bursting into applause. These actors may have PLAYED regret beautifully, but nothing else about their involvement was regrettable.
The film will be screened at festivals and. eventually RUE will extend beyond this short film and include webisodes, more video installations and even a live theatrical experience.
