Location Scouting Update
I went location scouting at a youth correctional facility. It’s sort of like a little town and I was looking for locations that could look like a city lost to the apocalypse. It didn’t really live up to my expectations and I also can’t afford the permit to film there. You need to have $1,000,000 dollars of general liability insurance. I got a quote from a production insurance company after I provided them information about my film: no crew, not many actors, 10 year old antiquated equipment, etc. The quote I got was $1500 dollars a day. I’m trying to keep the budget for the entire film under $1,000, so that’s the end of that.
Also, they don’t have any running water at the institute, which means no working toilets. I don’t know what it costs to rent one of those Port-A-Johns, and I don’t want to find out.
