Who will create the documentary?
There will only be 2 people working on the entire project since we would like to keep exposures low during this pandemic. That includes me, who will direct, present, narrate, interview the people, and do a little of the filming while I have another person who will be in charge of filming, and editing.
Why are the equipment so expensive?
The biggest reason is because we want to future-proof the equipment we purchase now to avoid frequently upgrading and buying new equipment in the future. This will also allow future productions to reuse the equipment we are able to acquire and the cost of future productions will be significantly reduced.
Will there be a full audit of expenses?
Yes. It will be posted by the Twitter account @TaclobanDocu.
Where will the documentary be released?
The documentary will be released on YouTube for everyone to see. The final product will be embedded here.
When will the documentary be released?
It is estimated that the documentary will be released on either Q4 of 2021 or Q1 of 2022. Live updates are announced at our Twitter account @TaclobanDocu.
Will there be any rewards for donating?
Yes. Please look at the rewards for this project.
