Behind the Scenes
Shot on location at the Second City Cleveland. George & Quinn are main stage cast members of Second City, Tommy LeRoy is the stage manager, and Joe Teeters instructs for Second City.
The location used, next to the HANNA building in downtown Cleveland, was also the exact location of a scene in Steven Spielbertg's "CATCH ME IF YOU CAN" with Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCarpio.
Shot on actual film, to give it a more realistic, and aesthetic look appropriate to the story, Bank Robbery attempts to help save Super 8 movie film from being phased out from use in the short film realm.
