of the filmmakers continued to create material for
the movie while living in different cities - Joe in
Chicago, Kevin in Berlin, Chris and Greta in New York,
and Kate in St. Louis - with the main source of contact
being email and IM.
Director Joe Swanberg insisted that he, Kevin
and Tipper drive all
the way to St. Louis to get a few shots that could
believing the process of actually going there would
positively affect the performances and the overall
film. Swanberg hates St. Louis.
