Grocery Store Owners/Managers

If you’re interested/curious about what it would be like to have a kid’s action adventure short film produced in your grocery store, please read on!  This film will never be made without one film-loving grocery store owner stepping up and supporting the local Pacific Northwest film community.

This will be the best behind-the-scenes experience you’ve ever had. You’ll get to hang out with the cast and crew, find out what goes on when the camera isn’t rolling, and meet a real dolly grip and best boy, and you’ll even have a chance to be in front of the camera (or give a role to someone you love).

Here’s answers to a few questions you may have:

How long will you be in my store?

Right now the film needs approximately four days of shooting within a grocery store, for around 8-10 hours each day.  While we can’t keep the cast up all night all the time, we can shoot in the later or earlier portions of the day, and we can schedule the filming on days that work best for the store.  Some scenes can be shot late at night when the store may be closed or stocking.

How many people will be on the crew?

We’ll have approximately 15 people on the grocery store floor at any one time, along with lighting and camera equipment.

Will it be disruptive to the store?

The filming will be the equivalent of having a small event in your store, we will have to close certain sections for filming for short durations of time (5-10 minutes), and there will be a bit more bustle around your store. As a film production we’re committed to doing everything we can to minimize the impact on the store while getting quality production value.

What’s in it for me?

First, it’s a chance to build some local community buzz for your store.  While everybody watches movies, very few people get to see behind the scenes of professional sets, much less at their grocery store.  This can be a unique attraction for your customers, and can set you apart as a store that invests in the community in new and interesting ways.

Secondly, it’s a chance to meet and see professional filmmakers at work, and get to know the local filmmaking community. There’s a wealth of talent that’s been involved with nationally known films and TV shows like Humpday, It Might Get Loud, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle, Band of Brothers, Leverage, and Twilight.

Finally, we know that good things don’t come for free, we have budgeted to pay for the use of the location, and want to give the final grocery store as much as we can afford in our low-budget situation.
