independent film studio…why dont you just make the film yourself, then it really would be independent! I live in Australia and a guy just made a film for $3000 and he didnt even finish it to film, he got it picked up and then they finished it and now it got a cinema release. $3000 Australian is like around $2000 American. Not really that much for a film. It’s called The Magician btw and the premise is like Man Bites Dog except that he aint a serial killer, he’s a hitman. It is actually really good. If you have a water-tight script and you really believe in it, $3000 aint really that much to put your money where your mouth is.
