“After working with this special group of young actors, I decided to develop the script into a feature film,” says director Nicola Hanekom. A true labour of love, filming was funded in part by an Indiegogo campaign. Equipment and gear was sponsored, and a skeleton crew put together to bring this story to life. Producer Grant Swanby says, “It was a truly tough process. Everybody was very generous and helped where they could.” Talented young cinematographer Brett Rayner was brought in and added a fresh vision to the project. The film was shot in and around Cape Town over 21 days in July, 2017. Post-production started in September after more funds were raised. The film is produced by Act Cape Town Productions, in association with Haas & Kaas and S.A.E. Institute.
