Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges of any film involve being able to put all of the needed pieces together and make it work. So far, we have been able to meet each of these challenges and take all of the risks necessary to see them through. With Fallout the biggest challenge is getting the sound captured outdoors without having the wind and outside noises interfere.
We have picked a great location which is far enough from the roads and houses that ambient noise from the highway will be out of reach for the microphones that we are hoping to procure with your help.
We have also opted to use lapel mics to ensure that we get good sound, without a bunch of open air sounds from our surroundings. We have a skilled crew who is above all things, adaptable. This will allow us to be able to continuously change our approaches to be able to get the best results. That adaptability is essential, and we have the right team to pull it off!

Living in such a picturesque region of Colorado, we plan to shoot this right in our own proverbial backyard, using the Garden of the Gods and Ute Pass areas so that we can feature and highlight the colorful Colorado hills!
Not in any way. The title is simply taken from the common term relating to the radioactive particles that settle to the ground after a nuclear explosion. The title also refers to an explosive twist in the story that will have lasting consequences whose reach will far exceed the point of impact.
