A movie can cost virtually nothing as long as you have one or two god digital camera, actors and experience with software like avid.

Search for the Blair Witch Project on the Net, a good example of an inspired movie made on a shoestring ....

I think the most important thing is the talent involved and the concept.  Blair Witch was a great example of a film which didn't cost a whole lot but was well made and had an excellent concept.  And of course, make sure when you're doing the film you are enjoying yourself and having fun.

Heck yes! I've been obsessed with the idea of filmmaking ever since I watched the extra stuff on the FotR EE DVD...I'm taking a Video Production class next trimester.

Hey Guys.

I do not want to make myself unpopular on the site, and, well, maybe I missed something?
But the "Blair Witch Project?" C'mon were not really serious are we, a few sticks hanging in the trees, wildly shaking camerawork, and a bunch of people just running around screaming "fark" "s**t" etc.
I'm sorry but I really could not get into it at all. But, as I mentioned, maybe I missed something.

Good luck with all your filmaking, you can do a lot better that "BWP", in my opinion.

 I agree with you there, Vivid. The only thing worse was "House of 1000 Corpses." Gag... talk about trash!

I've actually been in a couple of independent horror/thriller/shocker films that a friend of mine produced and entered in the sundance film festival. Also worked in the new transformers movie, yes thats no lie I got the pics to prove it. In fact in one of the opening scenes when the helicopter lands I'm actually in the back of it. Its alot more work than one might expect making a movie. Maybe someday my friend will get some big wig's attention and you'll see me in his first bigscreen production  *<:)  He does web designs right now OmegaWulf designs, llc. Think he has a website, not sure.
