The daily grind
Perhaps the most demanding aspect of making a documentary is you can't tell the people talking what to say, when to say it, or what emotions to display.
Capturing the story is talking with a lot of people, many times, until you're certain you have all the critical ingredients for a powerful story in the can. "In the can" is an old film saying from the days of celluloid film that was exposed and in the can ready for the editor's scissors.
The Vote will be a 90-100 minute feature. We expect to shoot 100+/- hours of film before it's ready for the editor's scissors.
