Ray Bouderau is Founder and CEO of Living The Dream Films (ltdfilms.nyc), a production company specializing in film development, production and financing.

Upcoming Features

Ray’s next project, The Public, directed and written by Emilio Estevez, is set to debut this April by Universal Pictures. Ray is the Executive Producer and has a supporting role in the film which co-stars Alec Baldwin, Emilio Estevez, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Christian Slater, Gabrielle Union, Jacob Vargas, Michael K. Williams, Jeffrey Wright and Che “Rhymefest” Smith. In “The Public” an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library where the action of the film takes place. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, some homeless patrons turn the building into a shelter for the night by staging an “Occupy” sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and a rush-to-judgment media constantly speculating about what’s really happening. This David versus Goliath story tackles some of our nation’s most challenging issues, homelessness and mental illness and sets the drama inside one of the last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library.

In addition, Danny A. Abeckaser’s upcoming gangster flick Mob Town starring David Arquette, Jennifer Esposito, Robert Davi, PJ Byrne and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, which was just bought by Saban Films and will debut with a Summer 2019 theatre release, in which Ray also has a supporting role.

Background on Ray Bouderau

As a native New Yorker born and raised in Rockaway, Queens, Ray has had a lifelong love affair with movies and television. Ray’s journey began with a successful entrepreneurial path as a restaurant and bar owner. He then evolved as a New York real estate developer and owner of a prosperous construction company. Following his financial accomplishments, Ray’s passion paved his path, moving into the film and entertainment industry. Ray maintains his construction business while simultaneously running his film production company, now following his true joy in life as a filmmaker: producing, writing and acting.

With an indisputable zest for life, Ray captures the feeling of being alive through creating stories that need to be told in the most entertaining and powerful way.  Ray’s work as an actor is compelling, and as a writer and producer he leaves you captivated and satisfied.

Ray involves himself in a variety of philanthropy endeavors, supporting various organizations such as Haven for Humanity, Cristo Rey Brooklyn, Together One Heart, and dozens of others. Ray has also used his connections in the construction world to finance and provide equipment and support for environmental relief efforts in Haiti, Florida, North Carolina, and in his very own home town of Rockaway for the relief efforts for Superstorm Sandy.

With seven feature length films released in the last two and half years under Living The Dream Films, Ray’s wholehearted driven and dedicated interest for the entertainment industry has seen him work alongside talented actors such as Amanda Seyfried, Alec Baldwin, Emilio Estevez, Adam Levine, Taylor Schilling and many others. His next project to look out for, “Peel” stars Emile Hirsch, Shiloh Fernandez and Amy Brenneman.

“I feel alive when on set and in the presence of a movie being made. I love the hustle. Filmmaking has always been a passion of mine. I am so blessed that my life has allowed me to have an understanding for all types of social interactions and culture, and enabled me to invest in projects I want to put out there. It is all a process. Some will be a success and some no so much, but no risk, no reward. I truly enjoy the creative process and want to continue to find ways to help filmmakers get important messages told through cinema.” – Ray Bouderau.

Being a part of larger ensemble casts and working alongside actors and filmmakers he has admired all of his life, keeps Ray’s passion alive as he also continues to develop his own projects.
