Risks and challenges
This isn't our first rodeo when it comes to independent film-making. We had many obstacles with our last feature film: Lake Eerie, and we pushed through against all odds and got the film completed. And now it is an Award-Winning film with World-Wide Distribution.
We will face challenges but problem-solving is part of the job in film-making. Planning and more planning is key; also hiring veterans in the business (in which we have done) to make sure less problems arise.
We have already invested our own money into the project, so we're not planning on giving up until the film is completed and awesome!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
