A Helicopter Aint Cheap

"Asphalt Canvas"...research continues...scouting missions to be had...unofficial casting going as planned...actual audition later this year...

I make films for very little money. That is the fact that many people may not understand. For the production of "Solid", I will be surprised if we break the five hundred dollar mark. You don't need a great deal of money to make a film...unless you want an overhead shot of a rural highway from several hundred feet in the air!

For this new film, I may spend up to a thousand or maybe even two, considering that I may have to purchase a vehicle for the shoot. Otherwise, it's film stock and developing...and food. The simple overhead shot that may take up a single minute in the entire film is going to cost me $3400. This is more than what I would spend on the entire film! It's either this or do without it. I don't have credit cards, and even if I did, I would not want to be in the situation of being in debt again. If I can do without the scene, then I will...if I can't, then I guess I'm saving my pennies!
