As can now be seen below. -The Film was originally shot with another actor as "Nicole", but due to scheduling the film could not be finished with her, and was replaced with Sara Sabyan. Some original footage of the other actor still remains... Somewhere. -In 2008 the Director's Cut of the film was completed, with the tones and feelings that Attila wanted to portray more; which he wasn't able to do at the time.

There will be a full video(watch it above) coming soon, as I was taken WAY out of context by the writer: READ ON GS or below: ​ Renters of Vancouver: “I’ve been physically attacked because I choose to live in my van” ​ “Renters of Vancouver” takes an intimate look at how the city's millennials are dealing with the housing crisis. “I’ve been living in my van for two years now. It’s the best choice of accommodation I’ve ever made. ​ A while ago I got a job in northern British Columbia. Whilst I was up there I had a bit of an epiphany. I spoke to one of the local campsites, and realized I could get a van and stay there for very little money. I knew I was going to be working the job day and night in a supervising position, so I would only be sleeping for about five or six hours, and then going back to work. That’s how I first adopted the lifestyle. ​ When I headed back to Vancouver, I kept the van. Before I realized that a mobile and nomadic way of living could be a possibility, I worked in an office every day. It was my life. Don’t get me wrong—I loved my work, but so much so that I was never home. I was paying heat and hot water and rent for somewhere I was never at. I showered at work, went home and slept for a couple of hours, and came back into work. I only needed a bed, so keeping the van made sense. It’s one of those soccer-mom type vehicles, which I’ve modified pretty heavily. I have a great bed in the back, and it’s really cushy and cosy. Right now, I’m employed in the service industry part-time, and for the other half I work online as an audio transcriber. I’m very busy, so I’m only actually in the van for a couple of hours. And working from a computer means I can be quite flexible about where I park. ​ I love that I have no attachment to one place. If I want, I can set off immediately on a trip without worrying about paying my rent, or someone taking care of my apartment, or something bad happening to the building. I work six or seven days a week, but I only have five-hour days with my service job. So when I get any time off—even just two days—I’m gone. I get in my car and go out to the country, go on a hike, and just get out of the city. I don’t have to book a rental apartment, and I don’t have to sleep in a tent. That’s the advantage for me—not only can I go wherever I want, but I can stay there. I save a lot of money. People expect parking to be expensive, but there’s actually a lot of free spots in Vancouver, which a lot of people just don’t notice. There’s some very cheap parking too in the sidestreets. Gas is my main expenditure, and that isn’t very much at all. ​ The trouble is that others don’t understand that this is a logical life choice for me, and for lots of other people in the community. I’ve found that Vancouverites make assumptions about who I am because I live in my van. I’ve been attacked a couple of times in my vehicle, because people think that I’m some kind of deranged psycho. And these aren’t individuals that are considered to be “dangerous”. They’re the nice, kind people in your neighbourhood. The worst time was just outside downtown. The attackers obviously knew I was in the van at night, because they could see the lights. They shook the vehicle and yelled at me. People have hit the vehicle with their hands and big sticks. On one occasion, it was so bad that that my van was destroyed. I woke up one day and my tires were slashed so I couldn’t go anywhere, but then I had threatening letters telling me to leave. Another time, I went to work one day, and I came back to find that the whole engine had been wrecked. The letters they wrote to me said things like ‘we don’t want you homeless here’, and ‘drug addict’. That was in Strathcona. ​ I’ve always been in steady employment, and I’m well educated. I’m not a drug addict, and I’m not a drinker. I was actually in the final stages of putting a down payment on a house in Burnaby just before I got the van, but I stopped myself at the last minute because I realized I’d rather spend my money on experiences rather than a mortgage. With social media, living in a van is becoming more and more mainstream as people publicize it. It’s not even a new idea. If you go to the much older generation, they’ll tell you that exactly the same thing was happening in the 60s and 70s. It’s a cultural idea that it’s unconventional. Now people are starting to live in their vans again, but for different reasons. Vancouver is unaffordable, and living in a vehicle is a viable alternative." ​ TRIVIA -The host(Seasons 1, 2, 3, 4) was once homeless and lived in his car, but that prompted him to re-examine homelessness and to begin this experiment. ​ -The hashtag in the title is not just simple about being search-able online; as the hashtag stand for number/a numerical value. It's a nod to the personal struggle the host battles with depression, and how his 'number' is/will be up! soon. ​ -Usually after the end credits in each episode there is a preview from the coming episode or a bonus clip that is interesting or essential to understanding the whole thoughts of the host; or an extension of a thought or moment. ​ -In Season 3, Attila wears a shirt that says "who did it?". Which is a reference to the film Clue (1985); as in asking the question, if it was the Butler. Which the answer is "the butler did it". In Season 3 Attila is a Butler; for some of the show. Along with numerous other characters he greats such as "Tequila Mockingbird" and "Dr. Joseph Park". ​ -Also known as "#VanLifeAttila", "#CabinLifeAttila" ​ LEAD Cast RAVEN LIGHT - Raven ATTILA - Attila DAYNA FURST - Dayna BECKY OBEN - Becky ​ LEAD Crew ATTILA - Executive Producer/Producer/Director/Writer DAYNA FURST - Writer/Director BECKY OBEN - Writer ATKA FILMS REALITY - Production Company/Distributor ATKA FILMS - Presents/Distributor

This plays into the obsession of the character Edward; but also mirrors the OCD of the character Elizabeth. -The original trailer was created in 2007 in hopes to release the film that year. The release has been delayed due to technical problems. since 2009. -development began in early 2004. -the second cut came in at 4 1/2 hrs (2010). -the first cut of the film came in at 6hrs; give a few minutes (2009). -due to major complications(program failure, for example) the film was put on delay (2007). -crazy credit: "Male daughter", this is the directors sense of humor, but it also plays into the film and the hundreds of nuances included -director(Attila Kállai) can be seen in the nightclub scene walking around in the crowd, along with lead actors Jennifer Huva and Juniper Omoniyi. -In 2010 filming(there were only a few scenes left to shoot with actor and personal friend Denis Simpson, but scheduling conflicts kept arising) to complete all outstanding scenes with actor Denis Simpson was delayed once again and incompleted, as actor Denis Simpson passed away. His final scenes were not completed and the task of re-working the script was at hand. -The lead character Edward is suffering from a terminal illness-in a twist of art imitating life(script was based on true events) and life imitating art(lead actor Attila's life); the actor/producer/director Attila who portrays Edward is also fighting an illness(since 2013). -Lead actor Attila never intended on being in the film. -A lot of the lead cast and crew joined in as Background Performers in the nightclub scene. A tripod keeps appearing in the film, and so much so that eventually the crew kept placing the tripod in the scenes as a "Tripod". The Tripod has been credited. They have also given names to the rest of the film equipment; such as Jose and Jos-B. -One of the final scenes of the film had to be shot weeks later, and the lead actress Jenifer Huva painted her nails which could be seen in the shot. So the director-connecting it to her character just simply asked Jennifer to pull her sleeves over her fingers and play the scene like that. -The end of the film there is one credit which in an anti-credit; this is not usual but it has been seen before in Scream (1996). The credit reads "JORDAN GRUYER - NO THANKS whatsoever"; this was because this actor walked out in the middle of shooting deciding he was no longer interested in performing what was written in the script and decided to begin to change what was written; and as further discussion went on about sticking to the script, eventually the actor left and did not return any phone calls.

It started when Magi and TT applied for a live/work art studio to share as a home and office.
