During the filming, Ridley spent time in Astoria and on the Oregon Coast, and she had nothing but good things to say about these locations. She was moved by the Pacific Ocean’s beauty and the rough shoreline and loved the slow pace of life. (Read more in Oregon Live, Collider, and the Hollywood Reporter).

Of the small crew (about 20-25 people) around half were from Oregon. It shot mostly in Astoria, as well as Seaside, Gearhart, and St Helens. Oregon Co-Producers, Steve Weisman and Kyle Eaton said, “The film was originally written for Maine, but they came here to look at the coast and fell in love with it and altered the story just a little to fit with the Northwest “. Weisman noted, “It was a fantastic shoot — the community of Astoria particularly was a welcoming joy to work with — municipalities, fire dept, police dept, chamber of commerce — and the people of the city were so great.

Many exceptional Oregon talent was also part of this film, including; Ayanna Berkshire, Jeb Berrier, Sean Tarjyoto, Vin Shambry, Rich Hinz, and June Eisler.
