- Actor-Inspired Element: Brían Ó Súilleabháin thought of the idea to give The Soldier a mustache.
- Awesome, Dear Boy:
- Sefora Castro jumped at the chance to play a vampire Sleeping Beauty.
- Bobby Calloway wrote himself as The Knight so he could wear the armor.
- Dawson Casting: The Boy is played by the twenty-one-year-old James Byrne.
- Fake Brit: Well a marginal example. The Soldier is wearing a British army uniform and played by the Irish Brían Ó Súilleabháin. Marginal because he has no lines.
- Throw It In!:
- The script was developed as part of a filmmaking challenge depending on what prop each team was given. The prop being 'heart' influenced The Beauty being found eating a heart.
- The Boy having a rose in his mouth as he climbs the cliffs was thought up on the spot.
- The man in the black cape was a crew member who was asked to jump in on camera to improve the shot.
- James Byrne improvised taking off his cap as he rests his head on The Beauty's shoulder.
- What Could Have Been:
- The original script had The Beauty turning to ash and dying at the end as she lets The Boy go.
- The Soldier was written to wear a World War I officer's uniform (as a Shout-Out to the original story). But upon seeing the red uniform, it was found to look better on camera.
- The Beauty was written with Sefora Castro in mind, but Rian Mahood Gallagher favoured another actress. When she dropped out, Sefora was given the part.
- The Soldier was written with Thomas Fitzgerald in mind - as he has a twin brother they could use for the WHAM Shot. He was unable to do it and Brían Ó Súilleabháin was cast instead.
- Written by Cast Member: Bobby Calloway wrote the film and played The Knight.
