-Production began in 2003
and wrapped in 2004.
-Earliest shots occurred in March 2004.
-The two men walking along the bridge in the Green River portion of the film were not told they were being filmed.
-Edited using Windows Movie Maker 2 on a Windows XP computer that was brand new in 2003. The same computer still edits almost all of Ubstudios feature films and shorts, just with better software this time.
-Stuboy says the end credits are some of the longest he has ever done.
-Re-Released in late 2009 with several editing fixes, mainly audio related.
-The 2009 Version is known as "The McCheater Edition" as seen in the opening credits.
-Stuboy says the 2009 edition was painful to edit, as not only did it bring back memories, but the original print was very glitchy.
-Due to its overwhelming use of music, the film will likely never be added to Youtube for copyright reasons.
-Video Problems- Since this film was one of the first edited on the new Ubstudios editing bay, various glitches in video and audio occur randomly throughout. (some of the glitches were fixed in the McCheater edition, including replacement of audio in its entirety.)
-Other- Any continuity or other error in this film was purely intentional, as this film was not attempting to be narrative.
-Trivia- At the end during the credits, screaming from a room next door is clearly audible. This was Jennifer's neighbors being themselves. They were likely PTing their boys.
-Crazy credits- Thanks to Kaing Towers inc. - A fictional radio tower construction company that creates "bum" towers in the middle of nowhere to cause distractions.
-Crazy credits- There are two sets of music credits in this film, regular and music.
