With the rise of 3D, CGI, and nine-figure budgets, the movie business has never seemed more expensive than it does today. But, in reality, making a movie for next to nothing has never been easier. In Movies without Baggage, longtime filmmaker Alain Silver shows how twenty-first-century technology makes it possible to produce high-quality, full-length feature films for less than $50,000, $25,000 or even $10,000. There has never been a book like this written by a filmmaker with so much experience on both sides of the camera. Silver covers everything from finding/creating the right script; budgeting, casting, and signing contracts; scheduling, crewing, and shooting; post-production; and finally marketing and securing distribution. Richly illustrated with stills from his own ultra-low-budget films, Movies without Baggage is the ultimate guide for the aspiring guerrilla filmmaker.
