Whilst Emmi had a pretty long script development process, the production came together incredibly quickly. We pretty much pulled the project together in little over a month. Once we knew what the budget from our fundraiser, we made ends meet accordingly. This didn’t always make for comfortable experiences but amazingly it came together in the end. Locations were falling through and their availability was changing on an almost hourly basis right up until the day before shooting. The fact we only had certain locations for a few hours in some cases – made things even more difficult (the staircase was particular legendary):
The production was originally scheduled as a four day shoot. However we condensed so much down due to limited availability, we finish ahead of schedule (three days). How’s that for efficiency? You can’t help but embrace the rush of film-making!
