Unsolicited Material: $62 Budget – From the Laptop to the Red Carpet
“Fans range from a professional psychiatrist to a diagnosed psychopath… surely Indie Film Hustle readers will fall somewhere in between, and as such will love the movie.”
“for the press, the story is ‘here’s some nutter who filmed his life non-stop’. For me, and as fans of the film confirm, the story is what I actually did with the footage. I edited it into a satire on the masks that comedians wear. It exposes the illusion of fame.”
“Our generation was taught to follow your dreams. But I feel a caveat is needed; is it worth it? What are the personal costs? My film adds that caveat”.
“I edited the raw material in such a way that paints me as a deluded video blogger. I lived that story, but it’s part of a more serious overall grassroots project designed to psychoanalyse why some people feel compelled to make a room of strangers laugh.”
“I didn’t win, but it didn’t matter. I was nominated for 4 awards, it’s played around the world and I’m sat with people who are teams of lifelong professional filmmakers with $20,000 budgets. I am one person, and I did it myself with Pinnacle Studio 14 and by not compromising my vision whatsoever. If you go for something where the chance fo failure is spectacular, you’ve already won. But never before, and never again”.
