Trivia

The film was edited entirely on Apple's Final Cut Pro software. Visual effects such as booms being painted out of shot and image tracking and stabilization were performed using the compositing program Shake. See more »

Goofs

Although Robin Parrish's character suggests "lighting one up" the next scene has neither of the characters smoking. This was due to the fact that the production crew were not permitted to smoke on the location. Instead dry ice was used to give the effect that the characters had just been smoking. See more »
