About this project

Risks and challenges

The only way this film can be as successful as we know it can is if the film has the proper support and partnerships. As you can imagine, a film of this scale and scope is an expensive project. From building sets to renting props and period accurate wardrobe, to housing cast and crew, to transportation, our budget is growing by the day. These obstacles are not deterring our production rather my crew and myself are motivated by the innovation that comes with producing a project of this size.
