  • Peter Sattler talking about using Muslim Public Affairs to make sure the film showed BOTH sides of the story. 
  • Kristen had a consultant to get into 'army shape'
  • They'd call JB (not HBG) to make sure the army stuff was right.
  • Authenticity was IMPORTANT to Peter Sattler in making #CampXray
  • #CampXray was inspired by some stock footage that Peter saw a few years ago about a soldier & detainee interaction with a book.
  • Gina Kwon talking about how she got started on #CampXray ... She read the script and LOVED it!
  • It was really helpful that the set was in LA, especially for Kristen (being the A-lister she is) and a low-budget. 
  • Gina suggested for the cast to have a night of go-carting to get acquainted with each other.
  • The party/boat scene was total improv.
  • Apparently there are a lot of deleted scenes of Kristen and Lane. Ummmm can we see those!?!?
