  • California Doubling: Ireland doubles for England. During the final scene, Irish registration plates can be seen on the cars in the background.
  • Creator Backlash: Played with. Bobby Calloway considers the film to have one of his weaker performances and isn't too happy about its flaws - but is still proud to have made it.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Bobby Calloway gave himself that haircut, which came about when his hands slipped a little while using a blade zero.

  • Enforced Method Acting: Bobby Calloway wore tight trousers to make Chris seem more uptight and reserved in the earlier scenes. For the final scene when the brothers are on better terms, he was Going Commando.
  • Fake Irish: Minor example. Chris is played by the half-English Bobby Calloway, using his own accent, with the Hand Wave that Chris lost his accent while living in England.
  • I Am Not Shazam: Thomas Fitzgerald's character is named Adam, not Aaron.
  • One-Take Wonder: The scene of Adam revealing his girlfriend miscarried was done on the first take.
  • Production Posse: Bobby Calloway and Thomas Fitzgerald reunited for High and Tight, with Zeff Lawless on crew as well. Kaireht Yovera, who appeared in photos as Arianna, also has a role in High & Tight as Becky.
  • Real Life Writes the Hairstyle: It was initially going to be Chris with the longer hair and beard (because Bobby Calloway had to grow it out for another film that ended up cancelled) and Adam with the clean-cut look. By the time they got around to filming, Thomas Fitzgerald had wanted to grow his hair out, and so it became the other way around.

  • Throw It In!: The Thousand-Yard Stare during the vomiting scene was ad-libbed by Thomas Fitzgerald.
  • Tuckerization: Filming happened the week after Chester Bennington died, so Adam's last name is Chester as a tribute to him.
  • Unbuilt Casting Type: Thomas Fitzgerald would find himself playing a lot of Lower Class Louts in the years to come. Adam Chester was previously that in his teen years and is trying to redeem himself.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Chris and Adam were made half-brothers because the film was shot during the summer, where Thomas Fitzgerald's tan made him look Ambiguously Brown, and it would be less feasible for him and Bobby Calloway to be related.
    • A short scene was scripted after The Reveal showing Chris packing a bag before Adam's monologue. They decided not to film it.
    • Aaron was initially just a Working Title and Bobby Calloway considered changing it to something else. Thomas Fitzgerald suggested 'Trauma', but they kept the title as it was.

  • Written by Cast Member: Bobby Calloway wrote the film and played Chris.
