Risks and challenges
"Collage" has definitely been an uphill battle. From scheduling conflicts, recasts, equipment failure, being unable to get equipment when needed, weather issues, lighting problems, etc...
But with each consecutive problem we've tackled them. When we lost a cast member and couldn't recast them, we changed all the scripts and created a new character. When we couldn't borrow equipment when we needed it, we bought our own. Still much more is needed to make "Collage" the best it can be.
We don't have access to our own personal editing software and can't use our school's editing suites whenever we need to. "Collage" is a personal project, not an assignment for class, so we've been turned away from editing in certain places on campus. The other places we can use only have limited amounts of space so we haven't been able to accomplish as much in post production as we would like. Also equipment does fail, so without our own hard drives to back up footage, our saved progress is in jeopardy.
We are struggling college filmmakers and there's only so much equipment we can afford on our own. Acquiring our own audio equipment is our biggest priority right now. We've been depending on our camera's built in microphone, which doesn't produce the best quality of sound.
Every pledge will be greatly appreciated in helping us complete "Collage" and making our vision proudly fulfilled.
