Shot for the 48 Hour Film Project in Providence, RI, July 17-19, 2009. The required elements for inclusion in the film were a coffee pot, a character named Sam Needham who is an addict, and the line "I'm pretty sure that's not right." The genre was "foreign film."
To create a foreign feel and language, most of the scenes were acted and filmed back-to-front. The footage was then reversed in post-production. The actors and scenes appear to be moving in a forward linear fashion, while the dialogue sounds foreign.
