1. One of the director's
roommates was evicted from the house on the last evening of shooting.
IRONIC, ISN'T IT? THE FILM IS ABOUT ROOMMATES WHO CAN'T GET ALONG!
2. This was James Liston's very first
3. There were NO unnecessary rehearsals
for the scene in which the character played by the director raucously makes
out with a female character, nor were there any unnecessary re-takes.
4. The director, Pat Harrison, chose
his own house as a location so he wouldn't have to get out of bed until
the first shot was set up each day.
5. Two versions of the soundtrack
exist: One by Clay Dixon and Chris Scales, entirely composed for
the film but containing a brief hit of "The Imperial March" from The Empire
Strikes Back. Another version replaced this copyright-infringing
flourish, at the request of Troma Team Video, with an original riff or
two by Damon Henry (of Saul Duck and The Beans) but is otherwise the same.
6. The director (a well-known square
who obliviously blows into the bong during his cameo as a super-cool
party dude), slowly became more and more like his character in the years
following the shoot.
7. This was the longest and largest
production ever undertaken by the UBC Film Society, and is the last one
completed so far.
8. The special effects director,
after seeing that the real dog didn't look much like the fake dog he'd
prepared for some of the nastier stunts in the film, suggested getting
another dog from the SPCA and returning it afterward.
9. All the characters were originally
written as male (thus their male names), but the director mixed them up
for a little affirmative action.
10. The credit sequence is the cheapest
one ever recorded on film.
11. Chris Hawkey (Simon) is not acting
when he gets hit by a coffee cup near the end of the film -- the director
forgot to call "Action."
12. Hawkey's beard was not what either
he or the director wanted; he was ordered to grow it for a UBC production
of "Antigone in Bosnia."
