As we get closer to fundraising, I thought it would be good to start posting ways for people to get involved. As I’ve said before, the more we can have invested funds substituted by donated resources, the happier of a camper I’ll be, for two reasons: finances cause me headaches, and I think donated resources encourage a greater sense of community around a project.
(Having said that, we can’t get around needing money for some aspects, but I digress…)
Here is a list of locations that we’ll need access to, along with descriptions of what we need. If you have a lead, let me know in the comments!
This location is a small, rundown house in a suburban area. We will be shooting both interior and exterior shots. The majority of the shoots here will be late at night (very late), and some of the exterior shots spill into the surrounding neighborhood, again at night, with a small gunfight in the street. That sequence might be a bit challenging…
We’ll be filming both interior and exterior scenes, during the day. Simple scenes, just some dialogue, though we do have a store manager who acts a bit aggressively towards a panhandler.
Bar, Bar & Grill
These are two different locations, interior and exterior. Nothing fancy, just dialogue.
Unkempt Parking Lot
We’re looking for a shady, abandoned old lot. Three vehicles show up, and seven people have a conversation. Late at night.
Military Compound Interior
What we need here is a large warehouse area that can be divided up into different sets, resembling different rooms, holding cells, corridors and teleconference stations. We will need set construction in this one.
Country Gas Station
This is one of those ‘Maverick’ type stations out in the middle of nowhere, though preferably it’s not a chain gas station (if independent ones still exist). We’ll have exterior, interior and bathroom scenes.
Capitol Building Steps
This one will probably have to be faked, but I will be pursuing Boise city to see if it’s even a possibility. One scene, a gubernatorial candidate’s speech with a crowd of supporters is all this is.
Old Church Building
This one is an in depth shoot, interior and exterior, day and night. We need to use the sanctuary, we need a stairway, and we need an office where we can set up video gear and computers.
Campaign Building Office Complex
This is the gubernatorial candidate’s HQ, a simple office complex. Late at night, exterior and interior shots.
This is one scene, dialogue, filmed during the day.
An apartment complex, interior and exterior scenes, day and night.
This is a big one. We need a ballroom, a lobby, a hallway and a restroom. The banquet room features a large fundraiser dinner for the gubernatorial candidate, with a large video/PowerPoint screen. Tons of people, complete with police officers busting down a door. There also is a sequence in a media control room, but that could be a separate location removed from the actual hotel.
Gwen Anders is the gubernatorial candidate, and her house is a large, spacious estate. Filmed late at night, these scenes are interior and exterior.
This interior set resembles a daycare. One scene.
Several exterior and interior scenes, all shot during the day. We’ll need a weekend for this one.
If you have access to any locations that might work for the above list, or any leads to folks who could help me get access, leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail.
