"It is the original hero in every last one of us."
Connor McLean has been playing adventure games and building worlds since childhood. Most notably, his bedroom, where the walls disappeared and any stretch of land and space imaginable would appear around him. It was so super cool that he thought he should find a way to share the world and derive from the struggles therein lessons of humanity. He thinks the narratives of our art should challenge and expand the consciousness of society to evolve to a free society of people ever-progressing further into what they are capable of. Cus ain't nobody got time for haters.

This is that guy. If it weren't for him, the movie would not have happened. That makes him worthy of all the hugs, all of them. Here are links to the sites of his awesome production company and IMDb page: Studio 4 IncIMDb
Donna Smith has worked on independent film crews for six years. She got her start as AD in the early years of Monkeywhale Productions, and is currently working on several projects in Greensboro, NC. Remember 7 is her acting debut.
Thomas Lees grew up in High Point making the stupidest and creativist movies evers with his friends, Connor and Jack. Seeking to teach theological ethics, he reunited with those friends and began working on both the creative and technical aspects of One Life Productions. Most notably his performance as an actor/musician in the OLP multi-media theatre production of Die Capital! when lions reclaim the parade during Greensboro Fringe Festival 2012, and editing and maintaining a supporting role in Remember 7.
Lauren Jeffries awesomeness and kindness will bring you to tears. She helps people save their homes from banks as their legal adviser and started One Life Productions with Connor in 2010 like it was no big deal. Studying acting and law, she meets the highest standards in both worlds, often acting as the solid foundation of One Life Productions in the roles of Stage Manager, Assistant Director, and Co-Producer. OLP has asked her repeatedly to be a creative consultant and entertainment lawyer but she things that's crazy talk and would rather save people's homes which totally makes sense.
Jack H Ross has been making films with Connor since they were kids. Most of the time he just wanted to hang out, but would somehow inevitably take his shirt off for a scene followed by hours of holding a boom in a hot summer field for hours on end. The friendship has suffered greatly as a result.
