Risks and challenges
Friday July 20th we will finalize a script, and begin storyboarding, contacting cast and crew, and schedule hair/make up/costumes before filming begins on Saturday morning. Extensive pre-production is ongoing as we scout locations, gather supplies, inventory gear, and get ourselves into the right mindset.
Saturday July 21st we will have a production meeting and solidify our shooting schedule. Meals, water, caffeine, and breaks will be provided to keep us going through this intense day of filming.
After each location has been shot, Rachel will personally review and back up all footage to 3 different locations (USB, external HD, and SD card) before moving on. At the end of the shoot on Saturday night there will be a final review of all footage to determine if reshoots are needed.
Sunday, July 22nd, Rachel will edit the final film on her workstation and personally hand deliver the USB and DVD copies to New Orleans. The film will also be uploaded online in case of an emergency, and one of our cast or crew members located in NOLA can deliver it if needed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
