Overtime was filmed in Sydney, Australia in 2015 with the assistance of Metro Screen and Screen Australia. It is the third short film by filmmakers Craig D. Foster & Emma McKenna.

The creature effects in Overtime were designed and executed by Odd Studio who won an Oscar and BAFTA in 2016 for their outstanding special effects make-up in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Lead actor Aaron Glenane recently appeared on Australian television in the mini series Molly as Mushroom Records founder Michael Gudinski.

Overtime was one of the final films to be supported by the NSW screen resource centre Metro Screen before they closed in December 2015 due to funding cuts.
