Director Chloe Okuno and DP Benjamin Kirk Nielsen's latest project together is Watcher, a psychological thriller about a young woman convinced she's being stalked. Chloe liked that the script was a simple thriller told from one character's point of view. Benjamin portrayed Julia's isolation as her fear escalates with longer shots progressively moving closer and closer as the Watcher creeps closer and closer.

Emergency director Carey Williams and cinematographer Mike Dallatorre met about twenty years ago and have worked together on several projects.
