Making films are challenging. In this four episode behind the scenes series, I want to share my experience of making the crowdfunded sci-fi Youtube film "The Camera Hack"! I hope we can all as an indie filmmaking community, learn something from it :)
In this first episode, we'll take a look at the challenge of making a crowdfunding campaign for an indie film, in addition to other important preparations such as finding actors. Due to some circumstances, we needed to shoot the film before winter and therefore I didn't have much time to prepare. We needed to shoot the film within 60 days to avoid snow and rainy weather here in Norway. As I work full-time as a filmmaker besides Youtube, 60 days proved to be very short time preparing a film like this. That included writing the script, making an Indiegogo campaign, gather a team, finding actors, finding locations, costumes, props etc.
If you want to see the full film "The Camera Hack", I recommend doing it before watching the behind the scenes series (as it contain spoilers). See the full film here: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Thanks to Fredrik Winge and Eskild Fors for helping out shooting this episode. Thanks to Thomas Leypoldt for making the awesome The Camera Hack music.
Thanks to everyone involved in the making of The Camera Hack, and thanks a lot to the 259 backers. You made this possible.
And off course thanks to actor Harald Rosenstrøm who saved the project just in time! Wow.
Stay tuned for more episodes by subscribing. And we would be so happy if shared the video with filmmaking friends :)
