Death Race 2000 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️½
This sounds like a fun, creative challenge issues by legendary B-movie man Roger Corman (Death Race 2000) who is credited with starting the careers of directors like Martin Scorsese. James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola and others.
The criteria for submissions, as outlined by Corman, are simple. The films, which can be about “anything you can imagine,” must be less than two minutes. They must be shot in or around your home. (“The cast can be your family or whoever is in your house with you.”) And the only equipment allowed is “your cellphone and the lights and lamps you have at your house.”B-movie icon Roger Corman wants to see your quarantine film – Los Angeles Times
We need more people like Corman in the movie making business. He knew how to get more out of less, which will even be more important in the future post pandemic movie production budgetary environment.
$300,000. That’s all Death Race 2000 cost to make. What would it cost in 2020 to make? Still less than a couple million dollars. Blumhouse has ripped a page from Corman’s budget filmmaking 101. More need to follow.
