Risks and challenges

The potential risks of Wake Up include the potential for re-shoots, technical problems on set and time constraints that may limit our ability to adhere to the schedule we are setting for ourselves. To combat these potential obstacles, we have in place several contingency shooting locations and dates that will allow us to ensure the final product is still at the quality we always set for ourselves, the only drawback being a delay in time.
