Trivia

In the scene where Miles confronts Caitlyn about their relationship, a framed picture in the background depicts "Edward Fopperschmitz," an animated character who starred in the pitch video (voiced by Hillebrecht) made by the filmmakers to raise money on Kickstarter.com. Hillebrecht had to create and insert the image into the frame during post-production because an Ansel Adams print was hanging there during shooting and posed potential copyright issues. Fopperschmitz has his own Facebook page, which notes that he was born March 3, 1930, and is an alum of "Perriwinkle Highschool" class of 1948 and "Brickmesiter Institute for Men" class of 1952, both of which have their own Facebook pages and as of May 2011, no "Likes."

Goofs

When Ren Fields flees the transit train, hazy reflections of bystanders are visible in one of the train windows. However, no one is there. Non-actor bystanders had wandered through the shot, requiring them to be digitally removed. While surrounding detail allowed them to be realistically painted out of the shot, the reflections remained, leaving an unintended ghostly effect. See more »

Quotes

Adrian Dreyfus: It's not working. Something's not right.
Daniel: Maybe it's the fact that they're in an evergreen forest in the middle of winter and it's supposed to be passing as the Congo jungle.
Adrian Dreyfus: No. That's not it.

Cute film about filmmaking
23 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a cute film done on a low budget in and around the Portland, Oregon area. Some of the indoor scenes are a little too dimly lit, but the acting was good, as was the soundtrack. I laughed out loud a number of times while watching it. The co-directors are both relatively young and have done a number of shorter films before. This is professionally directed, professionally acted and professionally shot. Yes, there are some of the usual clichés here but they do not belabor any point and the pace moves along pretty well. A number of good local actors were used as well as some non-actors. It was so well done, though, that there is no taste of amateur anywhere in it.
