Location, Location, Location

So I found a location that is perfect. I’ve asked the owner if it’s okay to shoot there and she said yes. What next? Do I have to have a permit to shoot if I have the owner’s permission? Do I need to notify the town office? I’m shooting in Westchester but their film department says that it varies by area. I’m guessing the next step would be to call whichever municipality handle this sort of thing….Or I can just go guerilla.

Something to look forward to…

Crewing Up

So a few friends have a greed to help me out in April and I hope I don’t disappoint them. Scheduling a crew is a lot harder than I thought, but it’s still fun to look forward to the production when it’s something you’re passionate about and you get to work with friends.

How do you pick your crew? And how do you get them to work for free? Do you pick from the talents of friends, post on Craigslist (and the like), or do you do it all yourself? Let me know in the comments.
