$70 Zombie Film Causes Stir at Cannes

CNN.com – Saw this article on CNN & thought it worth sharing. Director Marc Price has had unexpected attention over his new film ‘Colin’, which was reportedly shot on a budget of about $70 (!!). Yeah, that’s 7 with one zero behind it.

Interesting tale but truth be told, not just anyone could accomplish this feat as Mr. Price appears to be fairly well connected with industry insiders (they used leftover makeup from ‘X-men III’, for example). So although it’s a stirring testimony to what can be accomplished with pith and resourcefulness, it’s also a bit misleading. Most of us don’t know anyone in Hollywood nor have access to big budget leftovers.

Still, anyone with that level of drive & resourcefulness SHOULD be making movies, so I’m glad to see him getting some much deserved attention. Now I just hope his movie doesn’t suck!
