Although Stink Films shot Sunbeams at the beginning of the pandemic, following all WHO rules, the agency didn't want it to look different. Everything was thought out down to the tiniest details including every scene and every part of the production. Stink Films reduced production teams to a minimum, with the lead actress filmed by her husband, who is the DOP. The lights were all-natural, and the actress playing the mother is the directors’ mother - who also filmed at her home. The rest of the team all worked remotely.
