Facts

Although it was filmed during the 2020 quarantine the story was already written and mostly finished before the stay-at-home order. Once the world was shut down it seemed like the perfect film for the Cremer Brothers to do since they would only need two actors to be on-camera.

The idea is based on a true story. On January 18, 2019 Grace Soriano (long-time collaborator/silent partner) posted on Facebook that she was watching Rear Window (1998); a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic. The movie starred Christopher Reeve after his tragic accident that left him a quadriplegic. Joe Cremer wanted to comment: "How was Christopher Reeve's performance? Was he a convincing quadriplegic?". Worried that it might be too offensive for sensitive people on the internet he asked his brother, Herb, to weigh in. After a long discussion the joke was texted to Grace and never posted online. But the idea for the film was born in that moment.

"Who's to say what's offensive, anyway?"
