TRIVIA                                             

-French title "Mémoire".

-The original film was completed in 2004

-Attila and Judit have also performed together on two theatrical shows.

-A Special Edition film was released in 2005 with footage added that was found.

-Director Attila Kállai was not present at the premiere for the 2004 version as he was ill.

-The original music used was "Jesus Christ Homosexual" by Corporate Avengers and "Hey You" by Pink Floyd.

-Two sequels are planned tentatively titled "Memory 2" and "Memory 3", with a feature film rewrite also in development "Memory".

-The opening sequence of flashing knives took two weeks to cut(hours of footage shot), leaving only one week for the rest of the film.

 

-Original title was "3's a Crowd", thankfully argued by the Executive Producer Rob Crymble.  After the film was about one week away from completion the title was changed-as it became very obvious what it should be due to the theme of the film. READ THE FIRST DRAFT OF THE SCRIPT: 

 

-The character crediting was accidently given to different actors in the final credits; there was lots of confusion while discussing the characters, as their names are so similar.  The credits are different from the characters played; in the film Nicole LaPlace was credited as "Sara's Voice", but in fact was "Nicole".  As can now be seen below.

 

-The Film was originally shot with another actor as "Nicole", but due to scheduling the film could not be finished with her, and was replaced with Sara Sabyan.  Some original footage of the other actor still remains... Somewhere.

 

-In 2008 the Director's Cut of the film was completed, with the tones and feelings that Attila wanted to portray more; which he wasn't able to do at the time.  But as satisfied as he is with this final version, it's still "missing something", and is just 99% complete- But he is very leased with the film and where it's come, and swears he will leave it alone-until the sequels!

-Liam, Sara, Judit, and Terry have all been on other projects with Attila-on "Black Vanilla"; although only Liam and Sara's scenes were ever shot.
