Edward Burns, a longtime TriBeCa resident, shot the whole movie on a budget of just 9K usd, thanks to many friends who donated their time.
Good to know:
— Shot on Canon 5d II
— 12 days
— 3 man crew most days.
— 1 man others
— Actors wore own clothes. Did own hair makeup.
— Free locations
I think this is a little bit “scary” for those producers from Hollywood but not necessary – they still will have the biggest slice. Usually, a large budget goes to advertising, distribution, actors fee, editing (special effects, bla bla) and so on in case of big production, but this guy shows us that if you’ll have a good idea and enough guts everything is possible.
Well, if you find free locations, a bunch of friends who actually really trust in your project and this camera (around 3k – with a minimal Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM AF Lens or you can add 1.5k for an EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Autofocus Lens).
