Pre Production

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.

In April I will be shooting the first in a series of nonverbal shorts. This project started as an exercise I found in MovieMaker Magazine and blossomed from there. I was testing my skills as a visual writer. How well could I represent characters without dialogue making them a caricature. Wish me luck.
