Film Production Schedule
8th Wave Rules (2023)
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. Rough Draft Submission
You must submit a rough draft of your script by April 15th.
3. Review Panel
You will need to meet with the Review Panel. We will discuss the specifics of your film to make sure it can be completed in the time given.
4. Pre Production Requirements
You will need to email the Casting Notice, sign the Code of Conduct, and pay the Set Insurance by June 1st.
5. Responsible for all other production costs
All directors need to provide a mid shoot meal and snacks all shoot long. 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.
