After years of creating short films, spoofs and commercials, I am ready to create "Junk Dawgs Yard" a script I have been working on for about 3 years. This is a full length feature. We will be shooting with a Sony AX2000 from Access Tucson a local non-profit organization promoting media arts and free speech. As a member of Access Tucson and The Independent film association, as well as a citizen in Tucson for 40+ years, I'm amazed at the connections and experience that will be a part of this film. Using local crew and actors from around Tucson & Arizona we will complete the shoot in a 2 week time period with locations in Tucson, Phx. and Los Angeles. We are asking for your support in this project. Even a small pledges gets us closer to our goal. Thank you for your support!
Risks and challenges
Here I need to talk about the risks & challenges associated with this project.
Risk #1-This is my first full length movie.
My experience as a local TV producer & film maker play a big role in the confidence I have in myself & the team I have assembled to produce "Junk Dawg's Yard". We have produced over 70 episodes of programming collectively for Access Tucson as well as over 500 independent projects from short film to music videos to live performances to commercials. Even though this is our first full movie it's not our first rodeo.
Risk#2-The Potential for injury
In this film I am keeping the gun play and fireworks to a minimum, as I want the story to be the strong part not the effects & explosions, the potential for injury is high. Some of the action scenes in the junk yard require our actors and stunt personnel to expose themselves to an element of risk that could result in injury or death. As we will take every precaution to insure their safety & protection we need to purchase insurance to provide in the case an accident should occur. This is where your support matters most.
A challenge I am sure to face will be availabilities.
Even in the smaller productions this is sometimes an issue. The location is available that day but the talent is not. This will take some working through for sure as we will be shooting at some locations that are open for business. We will have limited shooting areas or limited time to shoot in the more common areas. Here I rely on the knowledge I acquired from Dov S-S Simens to help me organize my locations,talent,wardrobe,props,etc. Having a clear organized vision helps in planning the execution.
A personal challenge for me is I am the writer, the director, the fight choreographer, the leading role, the cinematographer, the editor and I am writing and producing the Theme song for the movie. It seems like a lot I know but to me it comes fairly naturally as I have been doing all of that for a good majority of my life. I am surrounded by talented people who can assume any of the roles as needed before, during and after the production.
I often tell my crew "Who do I think I am?" as a joke because I seem to do it all. It is my experience in all these areas that I feel is a major driving force in the productions I undertake and it's a big part of why I am able to complete the projects where others may fail. My team and I are ready all we need now is your support
