How to shoot with live chickens inside someone's bar
I'm producing a short film written/directed by my friend Brandon. Brandon is financing the film and wants to spend 1.5-2 grand on the whole thing. The film is about a bar night centered around competitive chicken photography, and we are searching for a bar that will allow us to bring two live chickens inside. We are looking for a chicken owner who can provide and wrangle the chickens.
So far, all the bars I have approached have been hard no's on the idea of live chickens inside their bar, citing "healthcode violations." Has anybody done something like this before? Can this be done on this budget? Any tips on what we can do to make it safe and clean, and how to express that to the bar owners?
Thank you very much,
