Matt Sharp (Eternity, When Night Falls) was cinematographer.

“We’ve proved again we do it better against higher budget productions and that New Zealanders punch above our weight. This is a proud moment and I am honoured to go and accept this award.

The Roxy Cinema in Wellington was the venue for the red carpet event preview screening the film which was professionally produced with a budget of $50,000 funded by CAS’n’OVA Productions.
