Taplitz talked about his experience during the movie shoot and about his career.

"Ira(director) taught me a lot of things, both about acting and film making, 'cause I also direct my own short films. Acting-wise, Ira taught me a lot about ''less is more.'' He kept on saying to me, ''Trust your emotions, and don't overplay anything.'' And I think because of those things the performance was a lot more naturalistic, and I will take those things for the rest of my acting career. And filmmaking-wise, he was very supportive, and let me go around and ask the crew about different things."
