Production Notes

Principal photography began on July 11, 2016 in Los Angeles and wrapped August 12, 2016 in Joshua Tree, California. A focal point of the film is “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo; initially this song was meant to be Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose” (which would have tied into the Dan character’s Batman obsession, as it’s from the Batman Forever soundtrack), but Seal’s asking price for the song was higher than the production could afford. Spicer’s sister recommended “All My Life” as a replacement.


  • The production was delayed by some setbacks when director Matt Spicer accidentally walked through a sliding glass door after yelling “cut” and gaffers had to remove fragments of glass from his arm with duct tape. At one point the production had to evacuate their location due to the raging Santa Clarita brush fires in L.A. county.
  • The short film “Hi Stranger (2016)” was attached to this film in the United States/Canada by distributor Neon.
  • Pappy and Harriet’s, the bar that Ingrid and Taylor visit while staying in Joshua Tree, was a principal location for Howling: New Moon Rising (1995).
