-ATKA FILMS AND ATTILA APOLOGIZE FOR MISSPELLING ELISSA B. FRITTAION'S NAME IN THE CREDITS
-In 2010 Atka Films was invited to the Shapiro Japanese Horror Film Festival to screen "Dinner"; but due to the fact that this film was shot so early on; before Attila had any plans on really making films and distributing; there was nothing more than a handshake; so because of not being able to find a contact for one person to get their release, they could not show the film. There would have been a potential to cut out that persons credits, but the original footage was gone, and the quality was also very low-so any editing would have destroyed any real enjoyment.
-Attila was casting for two feature films "Friend "Til the Bitter End" and "Breeders", when he met this great teen cast in the audition room, which blew his mind so much he knew he wanted to do a projects with this group; but didn't have a script-so he wrote one.
-Attila has actually done other projects with Andrew Brough on "Friends 'Til the Bitter End"-which turned into a short; but has plans to be a feature; and Jonathan Hamilton on "Black Vanilla"-which also turned out to be a short, but will be recreated as a feature with a sequel.
-A sequel is planned, a scary sequel. Possible titles would be "Dinner 2", "D2".
-A possible trilogy has been brought up by interested actors; titles for the trilogy "Dinner", "Breakfast", "Lunch".
-Allison Siemens was miss-credited as "Executive Producer" for the film on the posters.
-The first short movie-as opposed to film; from the director that was not a class project.
-10th film for Atka Films, and the 9th film for Attila as filmmaker.
-The only thing about this film Attila regrets is the "boing" sound effect in the film; he hates it and wishes someone told him how terrible it was-ironically even though this is an experimental film for him; it just doesn't fit. If he could, he would remove it.
-The project was to be put on hold as the director was contracted to shoot a feature film; and thus putting the production behind nine months if they went ahead and shot the project. It was decided by the cast that the project should go forward, and have the post production last 14 months.
-Later the composer Mark and director Attila would work together again, as the composer would take on his first project as director.
-Jonathan Hamilton had previously worked with the director twice before.
-The werewolf prosthetic was destroyed accidentally one day before filming, and thus a Halloween mask was used instead-were it was cut up in pieces and then glued to the actor's face.
