Zac Catone (Luke)
‘The Way That I Am With You’ is one of those unique scripts that has so much passion and heart behind it, it takes every effort you have as a director to match that passion and try to live up to what’s on the page.
Gabriel Dominguez and Zac Catone wrote perfectly complex characters, and Olivia Applegate brought so much pain, love, and frustration to the role of Emma. Finding the right color tones to fit the mood of the scenes and the right framing and composition for Emma and Cole’s journey was something we took great pride in. This film defines the term “passion project”. So many talented people came together to deliver a final product that shows the imperfect reality of love, family, and relationships.
