  • No Budget: A film made for $7.5 million has no right to look this well-polished.
  • Narrowed It Down To The Guy I Recognise: The creators were worried that this would be a problem if they cast a well-known actor into the key roles of the film. Although initially wary about casting Jeremy Northam because he was too unknown, they went with him when they realised it was exactly what his part needed. They felt it really enhanced Northam's skill at making Morgan Sullivan and Jack Thursby two completely different people because there would be no audience expectations about Northam's acting history to colour the transitions. They think it especially helped to sell the twist at the end.
