SS: We shot twenty days.

AS: Very low budget. Independent film. So there really was a sense that time was precious and everyone had to really bring their best.

SS: Yeah, but when you know there’s no part of the crew or cast or anyone that’s doing this for the money, it makes it more like a “it takes a village” joint effort– everybody has to kind of pull together, and– it’s good because it has a little more heart.

SS: Yeah, I’ve known Josh [Charles*] for a while. He’s kind of a “comedian adjacent*” for a long time. And we’ve together before a little bit. And he really was so gracious to do it, and was so beautiful in it. And then Tommy Sadoski* is so ridiculous , and was so kind.

AS: You know, it was a funny thing. Once the ball started to get rolling, it really seemed like the people who were right for the film sort of responded to it. And really no one said no. The cast that we have is the cast that we dreamt of, and we got them. So– very lucky and rare thing.

SS: I love Toronto. I even know how to say it: T’rono. Trono?
AS: So you’re saying I’ve been insulting people with “Toronto” for the last two days?
SS: Just, what I’m saying is I’m better than, in general.
