Funding? What is funding? I work in the Low Budget/No Budget realm. Make sure cast and crew are well fed and that pretty much covers everything.

Post links when the films can be seen. Congratulations!

Survived first day of the shoot. Longer day than planned since we had a no-show grip and the gaffer had to double up. Lighting setup is already the lion's share of the time and that was like a 1.5 multiplier. 

Cutting an exterior scene Cry today to help make up time and because it's going to rain all freakin' day and night. But it's a fairly organic deletion fixed with a small description change in the previous scene.

Cast and crew all solid. Whew!

Important lesson: do not think out loud during a set-up unless you are absolutely sure you're being asked something directly. It makes the director cranky.

Also: even when you wrote it in the script, hearing a scream out of the closed set room -- and hearing it repeated -- and modulated -- takes getting used to.

How's it coming along on the short film? I just secured fiscal sponsorship for mine through WIFT, so I get to ask for donations that will be tax deductible. Got a director signed on and he has a preferred crew that he has contacts with, so it works out well since I have none lol. Now to raise funds and get the rest going! Any other tidbits you've learned along the way, please share!

Having any sort of sponsorship is really nice. Cry

My script is shot and in post. We're trying to nail down locations for the director's script...which is proving a challenge since she moved last year. She has all sorts of places she could shoot back in Nashville (and indeed that's one reason we ended up shooting mine there) but she really wanted to shoot where she lives now, near Jacksonville.

Raising money would be a lot easier if I knew more people who weren't starving artists. We extended our IndieGoGo campaign and got a few large contributions, enough to make it possible to hit goal. Not sure if it's likely, though. Ask me in a week. Big smile

Yeah, locations are pretty difficult. I'm intending to film mine in the small town I live in, which really helps with that part. It's exciting that your script is in post, though! It'll be exciting to see it as a finished product.

Did you see the production stills? It all looks great. The DP did some incredible stuff with the location.
