About this project
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is marketing a short film by itself. We need to create three 27 minute episodes in order to fit PBS minimum season standards and to also offer our viewers with enough content to satisfy.
1. With Riding Bicycles serving as our pilot episode our next step is to complete two additional 27 minute episodes from the 100 hours of interview & B-Roll footage we captured on our seven month adventure.
2. Pressing DVDs can be expensive when not ordering in bulk. Therefore, we need enough capital to order at least 700 DVDs to lower our production cost.
3. In order to insure that we can ship our rewards out as soon as possible we need to meet our budget so that we can complete our season by summer 2013.
The biggest risk for our project was carrying all our own camera and editing gear into Mexico amidst a raging drug war. Though the journey proved challenging at times we came away with a very different picture of Mexico than that depicted in the news. Where we expected hardship, we found hospitality and warmth. Our only loss was Acey’s beloved bicycle Pegasus who was abducted just outside of Guanajuato, Mexico. Descanse en paz, Pegasus. With the worst behind us our new challenge is sharing what we have worked so hard to achieve.
