A British taxi dispatcher got a lot of attention at the international Cannes Festival in France this year with his amazingly low-budget movie about zombies, of all subjects. How low budget? Try $70.
Director Marc Price begged and borrowed most of the gear to make his movie, Colin. He pleaded with friends to appear for free, and taught himself special effect editing in his spare time while working nights at a taxi company. So dont let anyone tell you that you cant make it with low-budget equipment… if a story engages an audience, it doesnt matter how it was made or how much it cost. Take THAT over-paid Hollywood moguls! The people have spoken. As for the rest of you, maybe this story will inspire you to use your next free weekend for something creative… who knows, maybe next year well see YOU at Cannes.
