Was chatting with a filmmaker today and I thought it would be interesting to do a quote article (been a while since we did one of those!) where people shared the thing they spent the most amount of money on, the amount if they’re comfortable sharing that, and the thing they were surprised they didn’t spend MORE money on.
Anyone who’s willing to share any/all of the above, comment below or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
My break down would be:
Most money: Transportation, $231 for Sam and Pat Season 2, a show with one location and two characters. This always happens, and I always forget, that accidents and equipment halls cost $$, especially when you’re sending someone away to grab a forgotten prop or costume in a panic and have limited time to get them back to set.
Surprising cheap thing: Props, $69.60! For a show where our predominant fear was the cost of props, we did a hell of a job begging/borrowing/making our own.
