Filmmaker Shares His Story, Clips and Tips with Film Class

IndeImagependent filmmaker Nathan Ives visited Dr. Frierson’s MFA thesis class this morning, teasing the class with the first fifteen minutes of his comedy, “It’s Not You, It’s Me.” Fortunately, students and other members of the public can see the film in its entirety tonight or tomorrow night at Geeksboro Coffeehouse and Cinema.

Ives, an Asheville native, has lived in Los Angeles since the 1990s, writing screenplays and playing music. In 2011, he optioned a screenplay to Andrew Lauren Co. (The Squid and the Whale), and is now circulating his new film. He wrote, directed and produced “It’s Not You, It’s Me,” which stars Ross McCall, Joelle Carter, Vivica A. Fox and Beth Littleford.

The film is branded “a serious relationship comedy,” and features the main characters battling their inner demons as they navigate the next step in their relationship. Those “demons” though, are not so scary when embodied by charming actors armed with engaging banter.

Haute-Lifestyle calls it a “sleeper film with potential for a solid run.” Check it out, tonight or Tuesday.
