The Specials announced the death of their frontman on social media. They tweeted, "It is with great sadness that we announce the passing, following a brief illness, of Terry, our beautiful friend, brother and one of the most brilliant singers, songwriters and lyricists this country has ever produced. Terry was a wonderful husband and father and one of the kindest, funniest, and most genuine of souls. His music and his performances encapsulated the very essence of life… the joy, the pain, the humour, the fight for justice, but mostly the love." Hall formed Fun Boy Three with fellow bandmates Neville Staple and Lynval Golding in 1981, who also remembered the singer. No comments have been made by Hall's current wife with whom he had a son.

As per her website, Heymann says, "I thrive on being the outsider looking in - I am interested in stories that reflect an individual trying to make their own sense of the world. My way in is a great character, a distinctive voice or a unique point of view that engages, excites or touches me. I delight in the cinematic journey, the collaboration between those in front and behind the camera and the process of bringing that vision to life."
