My friends shot this (Camera Dept). It was 3 weeks in the middle of nowhere in the South island of NZ, and it was torrential rain every night, which really added to the drama of the entire sequence. They were allowed 2 days off a week, but they had to drive 4 hours to get to the nearest town, where they'd get shit-faced drunk, then return to set to get to call time of 6am :)
