Mayfield

James Mayfield has spent the last decade performing a one man show from his youth in an attempt to trigger memories that are very important to him. However things take a turn when he is pushed into closing his show with a little help from some lost memories. Mayfield has to find the limit of how many times he can relive a moment before his memory changes.

Director’s Statement

The majority of this film was shot in Wilmington, OH and New Vienna, OH. We rented the historical Murphy Theatre in downtown Wilmington as our main setting and the rest was shot in New Vienna at John Riley’s house. John is the actor that plays James Mayfield in this film, but he did much more than that. John helped build all the sets in his garage and really took ownership of his character. We worked many weeks together building and designing sets, rewriting lines for his character, and finding props. I truly could not have done this without John, and was excited to see him invest in the character as much as he did.
