The film was inspired by Peyton's aunt, who was named Evelyn and one day remarked that no characters are named Evelyn in great films. At the time, Peyton was attending the Canadian Film Centre, and the film was produced by the Universal Studios Short Dramatic Film Program. Peyton co-wrote the film and acknowledged it was "very, very Seussian and Tim Burtonish."
Beyond the $16,000 needed to make the film, it had no budget for actors. Thus, Nadia Litz did not receive any money for her performance, saying she instead took the role because she liked the scene where she hangs from a rope. Close explained his acting approach to the film by saying, "It was kind of a silent movie. I had to use Charlie Chaplin expressions and you have to be blunt."

Famous quotes containing the word production:
“The society based on production is only productive, not creative.”
—Albert Camus (19131960)
“From the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
—Charles Darwin (18091882)
“... if the production of any commodity necessitates the sacrifice of human life, society should do without that commodity, but it can not do without that life.”
—Emma Goldman (18691940)
