Like all independent film makers, one of the challenges for Fausti_Films is how to create an authentic feel to their films whilst keeping the budget low enough to be viable.
This can be a challenge when the content of Fausti_Films range from war-time zombie thrillers, gangland murders and corrupt cops.
Costumes and props can be sources from a variety of places, antique markets, flea markets in Europe or even humble old e-bay! Michael Fausti joked ” No one at Fausti_Films is ever off duty, whatever the current project is, everyone is primed to spot the perfect prop… And our haggling skills are second to none!”
The same applies to finding the ideal location, “you never know where inspiration strikes, always carry your camera…. And be prepared to pursuance the owner to let you film” jokes Michael. Well, it must pay off because permission for the filming locations for Z.A.F. we’re freely given and included a WW2 air field and a disused science facility!
