Filming was shot by director/editor Mark Toia via Zoom Film and Television, Brisbane, with producer Keri Grant.

The doll was made by John Cox over two months on the Gold Coast, Queensland. “The doll was designed to remind us all of our childhood. She’s the quintessential doll that’s been part of popular culture for decades,” says John Cox.
