Risks and challenges
We all know that filming can be a tricky thing to do, but we have backed up our back ups for this one! We have three sets of cameras if one should fail or just not want to work.
WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?! Just kidding, We have sound equipment like this...This is my BOOM STICK!
Our actors we have food trained so as long as we have snacks and coffee they should be manageable...Jason Vail being a vetted actor helps too. He played John Wilkes Booth in Abraham Lincoln VS. Zombies.
Another major plus is that we are shooting indoors so weather doesn't really affect anything!
