The film was given a budget of $3.5 million and was from Granicus Film Productions, a company based in Saskatoon by producer Boden Wouk.[1]

Filming was to have started in Canmore in November 1978. However it was delayed two weeks as they waited for $500,000 to arrive from the Government of Saskatchewan. A member of the crew said "It was a good script, and there was a lot of momentum built up, but now it's all gone. The producer just didn't realize what he was getting into. We were a fair way into preparation - the cast was being trained to operate rifles, for instance - and some people were paid while others received per diem the first week. For most, there was nothing the second week. It was all pretty shoddy."[1]

Wouk blamed the Saskatchewan Government although he admitted he never got a guarantee from any branch of the Government.[1]
