Very cool, although that is much more than $300 to produce that.

According to the film maker/producer/writer, all the same person, he stated he only spent a total of 300 dollars.

Yeah, but then what does the HD cameras cost, the editing software, the CG software, the computer that needs to all this with and etc.

Saying $300 they are basically saying that they didn't pay the actors, for licensing,pay for regulation compliance, pay for on-site production cost, and all of that.

Just they shot the movie in an abandon part of town, paid nobody, borrowed props and went with it. I can understand that.

But you cannot make a film like that for $300 without stealing all the equipment and software needed to able to film, edit and CGI it.

Regardless of cost, I thought it was very well done(not that I agree with all of the content, but then again, it's not my art).

Open Source, yo! You can also get small HD Camcorders for fairly cheap, as well. And I would assume the actors were his friends.


Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. But still, that was sweet. Thanks for sharing it, Chris!
