The production was completed over 3 days: 1 day on location at the home of Whitney Grumhaus (once owned by the young James Taylor family. 1 day with Will singing in two locations, and 1 day with the car scenes. All indoor scenes were lit with Kino FLo Diva Lites motivated by the practicals and windows.
