    Why Make a Micro Budget Film?

    It’s fun to watch multimillion dollar blockbusters and to dream about making them. But no filmmaker ever gets the chance to make those films until they’ve proven what they can do with small budgets. If you look at the careers of any established filmmaker, you’ll notice that they almost always start out by making Micro Budget Films.

    • Before Darren Aronofsky made 'Black Swan', he started by making 'Pi' for $60k
    • Before Christopher Nolan made 'Inception', he started by making 'The Following' for $6k
    • Before Lena Dunham made the hit TV show 'Girls', she made 'Tiny Furniture' for $50k
    • Before Kevin Smith made 'Chasing Amy', he made 'Clerks' for $27k
    Time and time again, making a micro budget feature film has been a necessary step in a filmmaker's journey. It's their first film that is financially viable. That can get distribution. That gets attention. That sells.

    And you simply cannot go about it the same way you would if you had a multi-million dollar budget.
