Production for Who Killed Hazel Drew is in the homestretch. And to do this film project right I need to film more reenactment scenes.
That’s a bittersweet thing.
While I love filming reenactment scenes, finding the right locations, props, furniture, and wardrobe can be difficult on a self-funded, microbudget film.
The golden rule in filmmaking is “If your filming with a microbudget, don’t shoot historic reenactments and keep locations to a minimum.”
Well I”m kind of breaking both of those rules, but doing it with a plan and building in extra time as well as help from the community to make up the difference.
First, thank you to those that have already helped. You’re why we’ve gotten this far.
Help with Future Scenes
And for those of you who would like to assist in the future, here’s a list and links to what we’ll need to acquire if we want to complete this project by summers end.
