I realize it has truly been a bit since my last post. To be honest, I did start writing about three or four different posts, but then I stopped due to a fear of prematurely making an announcement and suddenly having it backfire.
So far nothing majorly wrong has occurred. There have been quite a few hiccups and some things in regards to filming are waiting so I will not mention specifics here until later – if I feel the need to.
Let’s start off with the biggest updates:
1. I have three (potentially four) interviews scheduled for my shoot! All of my contacts have been very gracious to lend me their time to interview them and for that I am forever grateful.
2. I got all the Risk Management and Assessment forms done! That took quite a while to do – they are really necessary for shooting, but admittedly they can get a bit tedious and redundant, but good to have.
3. I got my first ATA Carnet! For those who are not familiar with carnets, basically they are documents used for importing and exporting professional gear/equipment into different countries. In this case, film equipment would fall under that category. So when a carnet is used, it states that when I leave the U.S. and enter Ireland that I will be returning to the U.S. with all the same equipment and therefore prevents any fees that might occur otherwise because all the equipment originated in the U.S. (I’m a bit jet lagged at the moment, so I hope that makes sense).
Anyway, I am tired and I have an interview tomorrow (be sure to follow to find out who!), so I will leave it there for now.
