“Having done a run and gun road movie, I wanted to dive into something bigger, something with historic appeal. We brought in Western historian Pete Sherayko to create a town that reflects the tent city aesthetic from the ground up. Due to the government switch, the town was built as the film was being shot; much like these towns went up overnight in that era. The classic case of art imitating life,” said director James O’Brien. “The impetus for the story was the incredibly colorful nature of these tent cities, where anyone from anywhere could turn up. They might be a deadly gunfighter, a con artist, or maybe the love of your life. Anything can and did happen in those pop up towns. And the same holds true in Western Religion.”
