I am making a short, have a great script and one household name willing to act in it. I found an excellent location, but it costs a bit... well at least for me - £930 for the day's shooting I intend. The budget for the film is tiny for a film (£1,500 forecast) but big when I consider self-financing.
Anyway back to the title of this thread: Product Placement is one idea I have come up with. As it's a low budget production I was thinking of asking local companies, seeing whether they'd provide some funding for this film or the film group I've just started up.
But IF they did give me some pennies would that mean restrictions on the film festival circuit? Is that sort of thing frowned upon?
