"The Invincible Ecksteins" was created as part of an ACME Acting Lab “Film Lab.” The company met for three months beginning in February 2006 to create characters and develop a story. The film was shot over four days in May and premiered in July. Although the screenwriter wrote the shooting script, many of the ideas, dialogue and story arcs came from each of the actors.
