As one of the lead producers of this indie film, I was engaged from casting, to camera tests, to raising financing, to final deliverables; as well as years of residual accounting to our actors and shareholders. (Fun fact, if you had invested in the S&P 500 over the period of time the film was financed and monies returned to investors, you would have lost 19.3%. Instead, our investors made a small return, of 3.9%).
In additional to all legal, fiduciary, and operational duties, I also:
- Drove our first motorhome to Arizona
- Got blown out emptying the toilet on said motorhome (oh, the glamour)
- Directed a few second unit shots here and there
All in all, it was a good experience at making a salable film; and just as important, most of us that worked on it under some extreme conditions, are still friends to this day.
