We managed to find costumes and props at home meaning we didn't need to spend money on more. We used a dress which Olivia already had.The dress was plain white (as we wanted) and it fitted the time period perfectly. We also saved money on the props by using a rake which Chloe had at home.
Another way we saved money was by using the schools cameras and macs. This meant we didn't need to rent or buy our own equipment.
In the industry we would've had to hire help i.e. directors, producers, editors and make up/costume designers. As we did all of this within the group we didn't need to pay anybody else.
