Spud (2010) Poster

(2010)

Trivia

The bed where Spud sleeps in the dormitory, is the actual bed where Spud writer, John Van De Ruit used to sleep when he was in the school.
The old green station wagon that the Milton family drives, broke down several times on set and the smoke coming from the car, is real. There was no need to add the smoke in post production.

Jamie Royal (Gecko) contracted Measles during the filming of Spud. Luckily it was at the end of filming, when the night swimming scenes were shot and his measles are not visible to the viewer.

The movie makers were not allowed to use the Michaelhouse school's actual uniform and had to design a brand new uniform for the movie. The badge on the school ties is in actual fact the family crest of director, Donovan Marsh.

Michaelhouse School didn't allow the filming of Spud 2 on the school grounds as they felt the school was getting a bad name, and thus, Spud 2 was filmed at SACS.

The house in the movie used as The Guv's house, wasn't really close to the school (as in the book). It is in fact a few kilometers away from the school and is a bed and breakfast in reality.
