Trivia

Within a day of scraping his wrist on the coral reef surrounding the island of 'Eua, one of the producers needed immediate medical attention. The abrasion resulted in long "tracks" under the skin that started at the point of contact down the length of his arm. On a second occasion, Alex Bernstein (writer/director) as well as Zach Heffner (director of photography) were pulled out to sea past the reef wall in a very strong cross rip-tide. The two remained approximately three hundred yards from shore, treading water, for more than twenty minutes. Agent Ogden (producer/editor) realized they were having trouble getting back in, and found a life-ring that he managed to float out to them. Heffner, a retired professional athlete, stated "I had about ten more minutes of fight and that was it." It is laughed about now, but was a pretty serious situation at the time. After the situation was resolved, Kamaloni Afu (Gecko Lizard) said, "Today is not a good day for swimming on this beach." See more »
