Matt Hagerty directed the scenes he was not acting in from FaceTime in Cornell University's Mann Library. In fact, all of post-production took place remotely while Hagerty completed his second (and final) year at Cornell. As a result, Hagerty and co-star Jaimie Steck, who plays his ex-girlfriend in the film, have never met in person.
