From the black of the first frame, there is a hum as the patient reveal of buzzing honeybees culminates with the replacement of a hive queen. The placidity and the sound build an anxiety in this opening sequence that sets the tone for the film. Someone is going to get stung.

Forget the long hours shooting, editing and writing the script. The hardest part of producing 'Sh*t Cuse Girls Say' was getting the stars to wear lipstick.

In the back room of Recess Coffee House & Roastery where no one could see, The NewsHouse stylist Angela Hu backed a young man into a corner and forcibly swiped a sheen of Revlon's Raspberry Bite lipstick across his mouth, despite multiple protests.
