Risks and challenges

The two absolute biggest challenges for this project were (1) finding a someone who could build a cockpit for the film (2) finding a VFX company that would be able to do the VFX within our budget. Those two biggest concerns have been addressed. Currently the cockpit is being constructed and our VFX producer was able to work out a deal with a big VFX company.

Other than that, the usual challenges are still relevant. With a project like this, if it doesn't have the right people involved then I won't be able to deliver a quality film. But through what I've learned at USC, the people that I work with, and my passion for this project, you can be sure I'll be persistant and dedicated to making a great film.
