About this project

The Shift will be a new kind of t.v. show. A kind of show I have never seen attempted. The Shift is going to be a true reality cooking show that will show real 911 scenes. I will respond with the Firefighters chosen to represent their department for a one time appearance on the show. After showing a couple of minutes of the 911 call we will go back to the Fire station. In their station we will have the Firefighter cook their favorite meal for (the shift) on duty at the Fire station.

Respecting space and  patient confidentiality (HIPPA) will be required at all times. Any person shown on video will sign a release or they will be blured out. Violent crime scenes will not be shown due to the possible prosecution of subjects that may go to trial. Blood and gore will be kept to a minimum (THIS IS GOING TO BE A COOKING SHOW).

 I will be holding interviews of the Firefighters on shift and giving safety tips. We also will be honoring those who did not make it home to their loved ones.

The filming of the pilot should take three weeks between one and two cities to be determined later in this process.The funding for The Shift will be for the travel cost, lodging, production cost, editing, and if I can afford it a second camera person, sound and lighting person.

Risks and challenges

Challenges on this project may be, Permits from the cities, HIPPA issues, sleeping outside the stations, responding to calls and designing the gifts for pledges.

Permits- I will hire a management company to pull permits well in advance so i don't have these issues. And once we get the permits we will call to cofirm the permit.

HIPPA requirements- It's all in the documentation, and camera use. All will sign a release of liability. While filming i will use the best camera angles so that i put the least amount of bystanders in the frame.

Riding the units- Most units do not have the room for a cameramen, One of the requirements of the city's are that if there is no room on the units they will need to provide a staff car and driver so we can get to the 911 calls.

Sleeping- Most Fire stations have no room for extra people to sleep there. So we will rent rv's so that we have sleeping quarters. And pull permits in cities that need permits when you park on the streets. Plus
it will double as a production studio.

Gifts- most gifts are going to be produced by a local company i have used for years.This company will ship the gifts themselves.
