Set designer Brian Dudkiewicz created Rocky’s life in southern Philadelphia so realistically the audience sometimes forgot the boxing ring wasn’t real or that the brick wall wasn’t really the side of a building.

In an interesting story telling strategy, Mustakas and Dudkiewicz used television newscasts to push the plot forward without leaving the audience confused and without frivolously wasting time explaining complexities of the plot..” - Jaime Myslik, The Wellington Advertiser

” The grittiness of the story line is also portrayed though the excellent set designs by Brian Dudkiewicz: Rocky’s grubby apartment and equally grubby training gym.” - Valerie Hill, The Record
