Risks and challenges

Potential risks include filming in a foreign country such as Brazil, crewing up and finding actors down there, making sure everything stays on schedule, finding good equipment.

In order to make filming in Brazil easier, we already have two producers on board that are Brazilian and know the lay of the land in Rio, which makes finding cast and crew and getting good equipment down there a lot easier. They are people I worked with while filming the trailer last year, and I have complete faith and trust that they will be a big help in facilitating production in every way.

And with other issues that may arise, we will do our very best to resolve them, and keep moving forward so that we have the most amazing film we can make. Thank you for your support!
