Putting My Team Together

This will be the most important aspect of my film and that is putting my film team together. Ever since I started this film, I’ve worked by myself (with help from my film advisor, Camille DeBose) on this project, but now that I preparing to finish The Wheelchair Chronicles, putting the crew together is gonna be tough. Now don’t get me wrong I got plenty of people who are willing to help me with my film but I want to make sure I’m putting together a crew that will help make this film a success.

Trying to set up a crew is like putting together a puzzle. You have to make sure all the right pieces fit to complete the who puzzle. So as I sit here typing, I have to figure out what I need exactly and what direction I want the film to go. It’s nice that I’m editing but that’s not gonna get the film moving. I need to set up my crew so I can get this film moving and finally finished by the end of the year.

So I have to figure out if I want to add producers, if I need a cinematographer (which I’ll probably need), if I need art, etc. I know I’ll need an editor, sound, music, and I gotta do some voice over work so these choices are very important in finishing the film. I want this to be a great finished product. I want everyone to be proud of what they see from me.

Hey everybody welcome to Justin's Wheelchair Chronicles. This is a blog that's dedicated to my documentary The Wheelchair Chronicles. I'm 36 years old and I'm a proud graduate of DePaul University. Currently I'm of member of Access Living's Young Professionals Council. This film is a journey into my life and the struggles, the obstacles that I go through in my wheelchair.
