The film was shot entirely in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a country that has only recently lifted its ban on cinemas amongst other forms of public entertainment. After learning that my script had been accepted, I had two and a half months to deliver the film. Although the production grant from the competition was $10,000 and the duration limit of the film was 6 minutes, I wrote the film that I wanted to make, deciding to sculpt it down to fit the budget and time constraint accordingly along the way. Even after compromising many of my original ideas for the film, the $10K was nowhere near enough, so many favors were pulled in the form of cast, crew members, and collaborators going beyond the call of duty.
