Ryan Connolly of Film Riot was planning on shooting a big-budget short film project, Outsiders; however, funding fell through at the last minute. Instead of hanging his head and complaining about it, he, along with his crew and actors, shot a low budget short with the equipment and personnel they had on hand.
Ryan worked with Seth Worley, who wrote and directed Plot Device, to craft the story for Proximity over a few days, which ended up as a 10-page script. They then shot the film on a Canon C500. Post-production was done with Adobe Creative Cloud, Pro Tools and Red Giant plug-ins.
