FOOD COMMUNITY AND ENDURANCE ARE CRITICAL FOR MICRO-BUDGET FIRST FEATURES

How do you keep going, with limited resources, for a first feature film? That was the question posed to three Maritime film teams who recently completed first features, during a panel discussion, presented by Telefilm, at the Charlottetown Film Festival, Oct. 17th. All participants agreed that the production of a first feature is a real test of endurance. Harmony Wagner, director of Kooperman, (financed through Telefilm’s micro-budget program) stressed that you have to really believe in your story. ​ Elaine Shannon and Danny Thebeau, producer and director of Owl River Runners, shot their film in 14 days, mostly at night, and had to raise $10,000 as part of the IndieCan 10k Challenge
