So far on the blog we’ve had behind the scenes stories and behind the scenes video. You might be wondering where are the behind the scenes photos? There’s a good reason for that – we screwed up.
Since the budget was very tight we decided to only spend money on what was absolutely essential to shoot the movie. Taking stills and marketing was the last thing on our minds so we never gave a second thought to hiring a dedicated photographer. We had a couple people take some stills, but this was always on their break between doing several other tasks and it showed up in the quality. All the stills were dark and unusable.
Obviously this is one area where we wish we had a mulligan, even if we only had a photographer come in for a couple days to shoot the coolest stuff. So to the aspiring filmmakers out there remember- hire a photographer to take stills to make marketing easier.
