Pre-Production

The team is up to our ears in what’s called pre-production, or that time before you start shooting a film in which you have constant meetings. Meetings about meetings, even. A few days ago, I made a list of all the lists we needed to make. It was a long list. It takes a lot of work to put together a shooting schedule. And it takes a lot of work to plan a road trip. When you do both of those things at once…well, it gets crazy. Items on the lists: Form an LLC, open the company bank account, create a spreadsheet, sign some paperwork, research filming requirements state by...

Well, now you can get all of those questions and more answered with the new documentary Follow Friday the Film…  The movie which is about to begin production follows filmmaker Erin Faulk as...

  Erin Faulk plans to travel across America starting June 27 to meet each of her Twitter followers and create a documentary about the adventure. The 2001 Hanford High School graduate, a young filmmaker living in Los Angeles, is approaching it as a experiment in sociology. Inspiration came from a recent study. “A friend and I were talking about why 72 percent of people would trust the recommendation of a stranger online almost as much as a trusted family member or close friend,” Faulk said in a telephone interview this week. “I find that fascinating and decided to find...

‘#ff the Film’ – A Documentary Powered By the Internet   Every day we spend hours on the internet searching, shopping, reading, writing, reviewing, and communicating with people around the world.

We trust total strangers on sites like Yelp, Amazon, Rotten Tomatoes, and even those social networking sites, to recommend restaurants, contractors, products, and countless other things we purchase, site unseen....

WE’RE MAKING A MOVIE!

WE’RE MAKING A MOVIE!

30 days ago, my friend Matt and I started a Kickstarter. We thought we had a pretty good idea for a film. We cut together a trailer, hoping to give backers a feel for what we wanted the movie to be. And we agonized over how much to set our Kickstarter goal for. Too little, and we risked being stranded in middle America with no money and half a movie. Too much, and we wouldn’t be able to raise the funds in only 30 days.                                 A lot can change in 30 days. Thanks to all of YOU, that goal we were so nervous about reaching was blown out of the water....
