The project was originally internally titled "Reprisal" prior to the release of two projects with the same name in September 2018.
"Camisado" was originally a stand-in name for the project, but the writer Thomas Gidlow grew founder of this title as time progressed. A reference explaining what a 'camisado' is was written into the script shortly thereafter.
Martha Anger, who plays Jona in the series, originally submitted for a different role. However, after creator Thomas Gidlow saw her star in a short film titled "I'm Nobody", he wrote a new role specifically for her.
This is the first time brothers Thomas and Daniel Gidlow have collaborated on the pre-production and production of a creative project. Daniel Gidlow edited portions of Thomas Gidlow's first short film "Victor James".
Several actors who tried out for various roles on the project, but didn't land them, impressed the creators so much with their auditions that they were written into the script as other characters.
