Risks and challenges
Life can be quite unpredictable – which is why having a team that share principles of strong work ethic, resilience, and tenacity has been paramount to our pre-production efforts, Kickstarter campaign planning, and are commonly life principles amongst us all. We are no stranger to challenges and flexing to limitations is an agility our pre-production team has demonstrated in preparation for this film production as well as with previous works.
In filming for the pre-production teaser content and the “Meet the Team” video, the recipe for those productions was Caleb Thomas, a camera, 3 weeks and his subjects, and no money to spare for shooting. There was little to no lighting or sound support so he took advantage of natural lighting or positioning his subjects around available artificial light. Similarly considering the sound limitations we opted to secure rights for music; often being rejected, we persisted with plan B, C, D and E until we found an artist that was as passionate for his or her craft and excited to share it for a common endeavor. Sleepless nights were spent editing the videos, with limited software, while balancing a full-time work schedule.
This Kickstarter campaign took months of careful reading and research, planning, and collaboration. Likewise, pre-production efforts have consisted of months of dedicated attention so that we can hit the ground running post-campaign provided we can raise the funds to facilitate the endeavor. Our production team corresponds daily, meets multiple times a week, works well together, and works reliably even when autonomous – regardless of job schedules and demands, vacation, or sickness we are committed to communication and collaboration even if virtually through web meetings, phone or email.
We hope these examples demonstrate the quality of work we can produce considering our limited resources and provide a perspective on what kind of work we could deliver provided sufficient resources to facilitate overcoming challenges and preventing delays. Imagine the quality of film we could produce with spreading the work amongst an expanded team of talent operating with a budget to make the effort feasible? We have already carefully selected our expanded team that share the same principles, vision, and passion for their craft. Through the course of our campaign, check out our updates to see the other team members on board! Our budget constitutes the minimum of what we believe is required to produce the quality of film that we envision – estimated with detail. We need you to be the wind in our sail, to help us move forward with a pledge today!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
