Casting/Funding-How Soon is Too Soon?
I am currently writing a feature that I will be assisting with producing. The director/other producer and I are discussing dates and time frames regarding crowd funding, locking up crew and casting. We seem to have a difference of opinion if regards to time frames.
We want to start shooting in Jan/Feb of 2016 with several deadlines prior to that. Currently its in development as we are working on the script and hope to start the preproduction phase in fall of 2015.
When would be the ideal time to have casting completed and a crowd funding campaign started/closed?
