WORLD PREMIERE!

After countless hours of blood, sweat and tears (although we’re not sure we’ve actually spilled any real blood…yet) we are finally ready to unveil our independent feature film, (drum roll, please)… THE TROUBLE WITH RAIN!
We want to thank everyone who has joined us on this remarkable journey. Now the fun really begins!
The Trouble With Rain has been accepted into a growing number of international film festivals, including the Hong Kong World International Film Festival, the Toronto World International Film Festival, the New York International Film Festival, the Singapore World International Film Festival and the Los Angeles World International Film Festival. While we are honored to have our film screened for audiences around the world, we don’t want strangers to be the first to see our film. We’d rather share it first with our friends.
With that in mind, we’ve partnered with the Malco Cinema in Smyrna, Tennessee to host the World Premiere of The Trouble With Rain, and we would love it if you would join us!

THE STORY

Miller (Erik Nelson) just misses his train to Chattanooga one steamy afternoon. While waiting on the next train he meets three strangers – Eric (Adam Sanner), Constance (Valerie Jane Parker) and Violet (Inge Uys). Will these four young professionals become friends, lovers; or will they simply go their separate ways and never see each other again? Like Schrodinger’s Cat, all of the possible outcomes of this chance encounter are equally real, but only one will come to pass. Or will it?

The story line is non-linear (almost a Twilight Zone-esque kind of feel) that moves back and forth in time over a six year period. These four strangers who meet by happenstance at a train station, are ‘called back’ to the train station to relive that initial meeting, where slightly different actions result in sometimes drastically altered futures. The decisions they make, the words they speak and the actions they take during this initial meeting dictate how their future relationships play out. The ‘moral of the story’ (if you will) is that all of our actions, even the smallest, have consequences – for good or for ill.

THE TRAILER

THE CAST

Adam Sanner

Adam Sanner (ERIC) is just as comfortable behind the camera as he is in front of it. A seasoned photographer, Adam’s work hangs on the the walls of numerous prestigious residences throughout the middle Tennessee region. Adam has appeared in numerous music videos for major artists including Jason Aldean’s “Take A Little Ride,” Thomas Rhett’s “Something To Do With My Hands,” and Luke Bryan’s “Buzzkill.” His other work includes appearances on the TV series “Night Terrors” and the feature film “In The Dark.”

Inge Uys

South African actress and model Inge Uys (pronounced Inga Ice) (VIOLET) emigrated to the U.S. with her parents while still a young child.  She studied acting at Ocala, Florida’s performing arts school before earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting at University of Central Florida. A sought-after fashion model, Inge landed her first film role as the title character in the action thriller, Haima. She has since appeared in such films as The Laughing Mask, Inhabited and Thursday.

Valerie Jane Parker

Valerie Jane Parker (CONSTANCE) is a Nashville native, by way of Harare, Zimbabwe. Valerie has been acting and performing since she could speak and eventually graduated with her bachelor’s in Theatre Performance from Middle Tennessee State University. She has just wrapped production on the indie feature,Cecil, in which she plays the zany Ms. Baker. She can also be seen in the upcoming feature, The Dust Storm performing opposite Colin O’Donoghue (Once Upon a Time) and Jim O’Heir (Parks & Rec), and in the Lionsgate feature Blue Like Jazz.

Erik Nelson

Erik Nelson (MILLER) has appeared in a variety of national print ads, TV commercials and television shows, including a stint hosting the popular show “Dirt Bike Television.” He has traveled nationally and internationally portraying such larger than life characters as John Newton (writer of the beloved hymn, “Amazing Grace”), and as Jesus Christ in tours across the world. His major film roles include Wycliffe Bible translator Chet Bitterman in “Martyred,” hymn writer John Newton in “But Now I See,” and as John Wesley’s close friend, Delamotte, in “Wesley.”
