Stan is originally from Mississippi and graduated college at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) in 1985. In 2008, he decided to move to Phoenix at which time he met Martin. He knew from the moment he saw him, Martin would always be a special part of his life. In some ways Martin was a very complicated person, but in other ways he was pretty basic. They dated for several years but not without difficulties. Even though they had their share of disagreements, they continued to communicate with each other.
In August 2018, Stan had the idea to do something that would somehow keep honor Martin.. Although he had no background in filmmaking, Stan knew he had to make it happen. He began researching the idea online and met Elmer J. Howard. Stan discussed his idea with Elmer and together they were able to bring it to life. Stan can’t thank Elmer enough for helping make this happen.
When asked what message he’s trying to convey in this film, his response is simply, “Never take anything or anyone for granted because we are never promised tomorrow.”
He will forever and always be Loving Martin.
