Film Production Schedule

Rules

1.  First Film - 1 Day/Second Film - 2 Days

Your first film with the group is limited to a one day (12 hour) shoot.  If you have already made a film with the group then you get two days of shooting preferably one long weekend, but not required.

2.  Script Breakdown, Casting List, and Character Sides by June 3rd

You will need to complete the Script Breakdown, Casting List, and Character Sides by the end of the Planning Phase.  This paperwork is your plan and your pitch.  Convince me you are ready to make this film.

3.  Pay for Craft Services and Insurance

All directors need to provide a mid shoot meal and snacks all shoot long.  You will also need to pay for set insurance.

4.  Responsible for all other production costs

Every director is also expected to pay for all the other costs of the production. Generally speaking that includes props, costumes, locations, special equipment, and special effects.  Our productions are usually very cheap that is the whole point of a collective, but you are still responsible for all production costs.
