Hey there, everyone! I’m actually really excited about this month’s Hot List over at the HotPixel blog, as I had the chance to do a “Valentine’s-themed” interview with one of the coolest couples in independent film. I had the chance to sit down with producer, Allison Vanore and her husband, composer Rob Gokee, and we had a great chat about their careers, and how they navigate their relationship while handling massive workloads, all while promoting their latest collaboration, Love in the Time of Monsters, which drops TOMORROW.
When they first met up, it was strictly as friends, as Vanore was looking to network, and Gokee was going through a break-up.
“I had dropped off my ex-girlfriend at the airport to go visit, like, the guy she was leaving me to go date,” he says, laughing. “And then I had the meeting with [Allison], and then lunch with a friend.”
“He dropped her off, and met me on the same day!” Vanore adds, gleefully.
Their first professional collaboration was Solo: The Series. But as their professional relationship blossomed into romance, social media began to take notice. “People who knew us on Twitter saw us talking more and more,” Vanore says. “And once we started dating…everyone was watching. It felt like a public thing. People had somehow become invested.”
And yes, they had a wedding hashtag: #RAllieWed. You can still look up all the details of their live-tweeted wedding.
