In a conversation with Screen Rant, Storm Reid opened up about the challenges of filming a flick that’s set entirely on a computer screen. “It was very challenging. I had never filmed something where it’s all taking place on the computer, so [there’s] different eye lines and making sure all the technical aspects were correct,” she said. 

“It was a bit hard, especially with the emotions we went through in the movie. The emotions are heightened, so having to intersect both of those was a little challenging. But once I got the hang of it, it was so much fun.”
