Due to the film's low budget, the directors rehearsed extensively with their actors in order not to waste money on unnecessary takes. They also shot with digital video cameras to save on funds.

Belgian directors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani required more funding to make the film than they could raise in Belgium. French producer François Cognard agreed to co-produce, even though they only had a third of their projected budget raised. However, he was happy to give the duo the go-ahead based on their experience of making short films for very little money.
