Director Samuel Bayer Unveils Creative Labor of Love, Short Film “TIME”; Collaborates With Arcade Editor Matt Laroche

Award-winning Director Samuel Bayer teamed up with Arcade Editor Matt Laroche to tell the moving story of the short-film entitled “TIME.”

"This was a labor of love I couldn’t have completed without my friends' support or the dedication of Arcade Edit, who sorted through hours of my archives,” expresses Bayer. “Matt Laroche’s vision shaped this film into what it became. Lime Studios did a perfect balancing act with the sound mix. I wanted to make a film that touches your heart no matter what your journey through this life is, or will be."

The film tells a story of love and mortality, starring Odom Williams and Betty Williams, a couple from South Central Los Angeles that have been married for 75 years. Bayer used his own archival footage, including a Trump Rally and a Black Lives Matter Protest to create something emotional and powerful along with detailed imagery that “conveyed the darkness, chaos, fragility, and pressure of life,” according to Bayer. 

“I have a lot of admiration for Sam's work, so the opportunity to collaborate with him on such a personal story was one I didn’t take lightly,” shares Arcade Editor, Matt Laroche. “There was a tremendous amount of material and whittling it down to best express his vision in a sensible runtime was not a simple process. Fortunately, Sam really allowed me to explore the dailies and form my own perspective on the footage. He has great instincts but he’s also a gracious director who really wants you to be your most creative. It was truly a pleasure to edit this film with him.”
