New Challenge: Find locations. On a normal production, we as producers would go into a location scouting with very specific information on our schedule and would be able to give all necessary information up front and wait hopefully for a positive response. For this production, we have to lock locations for unscheduled days sometimes within the next week, be able to use them for the next couple months and leave it open ended as to how many days we will need them because we are receiving new scripts daily. Oh and did I mention we have no budget for locations? And people are actually saying yes! Local businesses have been so supportive of our small I Made America family and the project we are pitching that they are allowing us to invade their space and not asking for compensation or specific scheduling up front. Luckily we do have some things to offer the business’s we use. We can give them exposure and direct business from us and our friends to them. Most recently, Moonshine Bar let us film at their location and even let our Thomas Jefferson perform a few times for the bar! They were so awesome! I hope we get to shoot there again for the rest of season 1, I can foresee there being more bar scenes for our founding fathers! On to more location hunting…so far its been good… keep your fingers crossed for our last few location hunts.
