Our Team on IMDB:

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges with any film production but our team of filmmakers have produced well over a hundred feature films and television productions collectively. Thus, our team is trained professionally in how to minimize challenges in a time efficient and fiscally responsible manner. From locations, to actors, to equipment, to story changes - we will have a dedicated department head in position to work through even the most complicated issues that may arise during any phase of production. This team has worked together on several past productions with great success. When you back this project, rest assured you are backing a team that has a successful track record of coming out of a production under budget and under schedule. We pride ourselves in our reputation and "The Interpreter" will be no exception.
