Day 121: Research

There are two parts of the Indiegogo video: the teaser and the pitch. The preparations for the pitch are well under way as I am finding a crew and preparing to buy the equipment next week. For the teaser, I’m accepting audio reels to voice the characters. I still have to figure out how to get footage of woods.

One of the things I need to do before I launch the Indiegogo campaign is establish two companies. A parent company and then a subsidiary LLC. This way the money I raise doesn’t go into my private bank account and instead is in a separate, business account for payroll and expense purposes. It’s also where the profit would go.

Today I did some research on how to start a company in Los Angeles. Even though production will take place outside of Los Angeles, I know that I at least want the parent company to be where I live.

There are also a few updates I’d like to relay on this post:

[*] I am still in need of a crew for the Indiegogo video pitch onĀ  January 30th. If you are interested, feel free to e-mail me. I need a DP, a boom operator, and perhaps a gaffer. You’ll get pizza, Coffee Bean, and I will give you a credit in the final film product as part of the Indiegogo team!

[*] Thank you to everyone who has auditioned so far! As a note, I don’t plan on really reviewing the submissions until February rolls around. If you are interested in auditioning, please click the arrow to the right of the screen and click the link to go to the Backstage page.
