How does your Work Compare to Professional Film?
My film may have lacked financial backing but it was a different and subtle approach to the mainstream films.
This suited the thriller genre for example it worked really well for the Blair Witch Project.
A film is mainly dependent on the quality and imagination of the script and the producer’s approach.
I would be interested in using different techniques if I was given the chance to make the whole film.
‘ The Blair Witch Project’ made $240 million with a budget of $60,000 ‘ Paranormal Activity’ made over £100 million with a recorded budget of $11,000 ‘ Rocky’ with a budget of $1 million made $225 million worldwide
