Why do brilliant and competent filmmakers like this get relegated to making commercials & shorts while studios pour tons of money into shit like "Apollo 18"?
FABIO million doesn't quite count as tons of money for a theatrical release.
Aelric You complaint would make more sense with regards to 3d and other boondoggles, not so much for the "found footage" stuff. The benefit to paranormal activity and alloi 18 is all they have to buy is one set, a few no-name actors and a marketing budget, boom, movie for super cheap. annualize it and it'll pay for three other movies of significantly larger budget.
Binro the Heretic Well, substitute the name of any shitty recent horror flick if you like.
I'm willing to bet the people who made this short could do a much better job with m.
sosage Give this person 5 million and pretend this video never happened (or its a teaser for the bigger movie) and the reaction would be, "You see how Hollywood is now doing some movie based off of Lovecraft's 'The Last Test'? Gawd! Do those whores know how to leave good shit alone and not fuck up everything? You see those tree creatures? PFFFFT!" etc, etc, etc.
childrenofshub The short was intended as test footage, it isn't a scene from the film. There's more about it on the blog badadviceforgoodtimes.
