This doesn't include marketing either. Just wondered what your thoughts are on this? I reckon I could film something of similar (If not better) quality for a fraction of that.
this movie made $249 million dollars. so what are you waiting for ? make your movie already Mister Director
I get really irritated when characters in such movies act so irrational. I get that tiredness, hunger and whatnot psychological effects will impair your judgement but come on. Try to come up with solutions using logic!
How about following the creek for a while. Surely that will get you to some human settlement. Why is this not even a suggestion? I want characters who can logically, even scientifically analyze the situation they are in. Very little of this was in the Cube but what else?
If I was one of the characters I would try to bend the mechanics in the same situation (of course if I could keep my composure), start a fire for example, burn down the forest.

The actors actually got lost out there, so a lot of the arguing and frustration you see is genuine.
Making a movie, even independent films, require several groups of union workers and even renting a film production quality camera is gonna run you 10k for a couple weeks. Granted, everything is digital now, so it would probably be possible to do BWP for 250k now instead of 500k, but if you think you're gonna run into the woods with a couple friends and produce anything worth watching, then you're wrong.
BLAIR WITCH WAS THE MODEL FOR THE PARANORMAL ACTIVITIES
ULTRA LOW BUDGET WITH HUGE RETURN ON INVESTMENT
IT WONT CATCH HEADLINE NUMBERS LIKE BILLION DOLLAR BLOCKBUSTERS, BUT CAN BE MORE PROFITABLE IN THE END
Have you tried typing without caps lock on?
Yeah but it looks awful, it literally only made money due to viral marketing and the masses relatively naivety towards everything internet. There's no way people would ever watch a literal garbage tier movie like that nowadays
>There's no way people would ever watch a literal garbage tier movie like that nowadays
I think it's more because the found footage genre is overused now.
Back when it came out it was a huge new thing, even if it wasn't the first movie to use it. Paranormal Activity used a ton of viral marketing too, and it was successful.
