Ive been tinkering with the idea of a group of ametuar paranormal investigators getting their own show. only thing is I dont know thing one about how a reality show is produced and filmed. so here are a few questions:
- what goes into making a pilot?
- how many crew members are there? (think a show like Ghost Hunters, not something huge like Survivor)
- how much do the creators stand to make off a pilot?
- are there any legal issues that must be dealt with before filming?
- Will a company refuse to air a show if it was boring?
- are the crew not seen on camera under contract not to reveal the shows secrets, even if things were being fabricated?
just give me a rough outline in what goes into both the pre and post production phases and the filming.
