Behind the Scenes Notes

The use of this song was inspired by this song's appearance in the Guy Richie film "Sherlock Holmes 2: Game of Shadows". A new cover and arrangement were done to fit this film. The record player in this is a 1914 Victor Talking Machine- the same one I used in The Last Signals.

Introduced to the cast in this film were John Vilsmeier and Conor Timoney. Eugene Levitsky also makes his return to the films, and Austin Alvermann appears as well. Austin hasn't been in a serious film since 2008- four years before this one. Bobby Bagdon is the only consistent actor in this film, who plays a rifleman. This is also the first film my girlfriend assisted with.
