Production

The original short story to PayDay For You and Me was created by Harry131291 as a fanfiction of the PayDay 2 video game, which was posted on the Movies/TV/Books ROBLOX forum on August 26, 2013. On September 28, CosimoValuta secured the rights to create a film based off of the original short story. On December 3, CosimoValuta held a writing contest in the Robloxiwood community which would award the winner a co-writer status on the film if they submitted the best crime story or situation. Popsfootloose949 won the contest on December 31.

On January 25, CosimoValuta got permission from BenzBot to use the name and likeness of the actual Blox News Channel, which is owned by rTV Networks group. On January 26, 2014, CosimoValuta officially announced Vexant Inc. and The Mafia Films would co-produce the project together. The scriptwriting was finished on January 28. On February 9, principal photography began on the film. The official character posters were released on March 14.

Trivia

Link To The Short Story

  • A number of scenes were filmed on location at rTV Networks Headquarters, where the Blox News Channel set is located.
  • A conceptual video was released during filming to a test audience of Robloxiwood members. Due to negative responses from the high-contrast black and white cinematography, CosimoValuta shot the rest of the film with a different cinematography techniques. However, in the beginning of the film, the opening sequence still features some of that original footage.
  • Nelson Meedleson's character was licensed to appear in this film from CosimoValuta's film The Rohemian Club.
  • In the credits, the character Hoxton is incorrectly named Foxton.
  • After filming completed, Coollegodude1 announced the movie would be his last film, prompting CosimoValuta to honor him by only using footage of his acting in the final video. Cool later returned to the industry following the film's release.
  • On January 28, after reading the plot for the film, BenzBot wanted to assure potential future viewers of the actual channel that "this movie does not depict how the real Blox News Channel works" BenzBot stated he hopes that the film will interest more people in the Robloxian television industry, as well as garner publicity for the channel and his rTV Networks as a whole.
