Zombies on the cheap: a feature film made for $70

Colin is a new zombie movie where the story is told from the perspective of the zombie. It cost $70 to make and is apparently kicking butt at Cannes.

Reading the article reveals that the $70 budget quote is a bit of a cheat, because the filmmaker worked with professionals who donated their own equipment and supplies to the project, including makeup that was left over from the X-men movie. It’s not like he and my Auntie Beulah did this on their cel-phone cams in their backyard in York Region, and it’s not necessarily a business model that just anyone can repeat. Still makes me want to see the film, though.

Relatedly, here’s a link to a super-awesome 2-minute zombie movie, created as a trailer for the Raindance Film Festival. Well worth watching.

Adventure camping is not for everyone: some girls feel untidy without access to a hot shower.

Question: Is it wrong to label a post about zombies in Cannes with my disgusting things in cans tag?
Answer: If that’s wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
