The ABC's of No-Budget Filmmaking - articles by Peter Broderick
Someone needs to invent the machine that takes the script from my computer & quickly turns it into a completed movie & burns it on to a DVD within a couple of hours. That would be nice. Maybe Apple is working on that machine. Until that machine comes out on the market we still have to go through budgeting & crews & props & editing & all that good stuff if we want to make a feature. Even though the 3 movies (The Living End, Laws of Gravity, El Mariachi) that Broderick looks at were all shot on 16 MM, this page is a useful one to review before you go out & shoot your no-budget DV or HD feature.
