Neilson Black began writing New You in 2008, it was the third full length script he wrote. Originally the idea was about an obese woman with an eating disorder, developing from obesity, to bulimia and then full on anorexia. So the original story was about the cycle of the illness. Janine becoming a model was in the original draft as were a lot of the original characters such as Darcy, Taylor, Greg, Photographer and Chances. But a lot of elements had to be cut such as the obese theme partly due to budget reasons.
We started off at the church. The week on the run up to the shoot we struggled to fill this location with extras and unfortunately on the day we were very light on numbers. This required some of us to street pitch, which also was unsuccessful. In the end we had three extras along with the cast, which wasn’t enough but we did our best with the resources we had.
