The film was shot in late 1986 for a small budget of under $300,000 then the producers raised some more money(a few hundred thousand more) to put into post production thus the delay in the release. The Spike Lee timing should be more like Russell offered him the film in early 1986 prior to production later in the year meaning he probably saw She's Gotta Have it and Spike turned it down and did School Daze.
