After qualifying for the now-defunct North Carolina Film Incentive 25% refund, Well Wishes entered principal photography in October 2013 with a 29-day schedule and 65 shooting locations. The production crew consisted largely of University of North Carolina School of the Arts graduate filmmakers and the cast was filled out with veteran regional actors.
The film premiered at the Hollywood Film Festival on September 24, 2015 and screened at a dozen film festivals across the United States, including in juried competition at the San Diego Film Festival and the Napa Valley Film Festival. Well Wishes won Best Narrative, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Screenplay at the Williamsburg International Film Festival in Brooklyn, NY. After garnering offers from Gravitas Ventures and several mid-level distributors the film was independently released on digital platforms and Netflix on May 10, 2016 and July 1, 2016, respectively.
