“It was our goal in this film to create something that was both entertaining and emotionally

dramatic in tone. There are both joyful and sorrowful moments in this story, “ said Pace.

The “Archived” screenplay was written by MyAun Boyd and Titus Smith from an original story idea from Kaylee Clay and Titus Smith.
